NEMO publishes study on museums and copyright

In light of European and national governments currently reviewing their approach to copyrights, NEMO has published a European-wide study on the issues, questions and problems that museums have with regard to copyright.
The NEMO Working Group on Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) took on the topic to support museums in becoming part of the discussions around a new legislative framework.

With the feedback of the museums in Europe, NEMO has produced recommendations for how copyright in Europe should be shaped to help museums with ensuring the best public access possible to their collections.
Have a look at the study.


NEMO's Activities

A number of NEMO activities took place in the past month. The webstreaming of the conferences on  museums and copyright "Sharing is Caring" and the Creative museum took place on 2 and 8 October respectively.

The Austrian Museums Association hosted the third Learning Exchange for NEMO members from 5-7 October in Vienna, Austria. The next Learning Exchange will be hosted by the Danish Museums Association. You can still apply until 18 October 2015!

Lastly, don't forget to register for NEMO's Annual Conference from 5-7 November 2015 in Pilsen, Czech Republic! We will discuss with stakeholders from the museum and culture sector all over Europe about the educational value of museums and their ability to connect to various audiences!
