This week we were at fotofringe talking about the work of the Copyright Hub. Our project manager, Daniel Mermelstein, had two sessions (morning and afternoon) where he presented the work of the Hub and took questions from attendees. Our acting CEO, Caroline Boyd, was also there and held Q&A sessions informally through the day.
We teamed up with DAM provider Capture to show an implementation of the Hub technology: throughout the day, photos taken by the official photographer were being automatically uploaded to the Capture systems and tagged with the Hub’s eCopyright symbol, before being displayed to attendees via a website created for the day. You can see the results here.
It was great to meet with so many people in the images industry and discuss the opportunities and challenges in the sector, and we came away with lots of ideas for future work.
Next month Caroline will be attending the CEPIC congress in Berlin to continue our work getting or eCopyright message out there.
But the Hub is not only about images. We are currently working with publishers in various sectors as well, trying to bring the Hub’s technology to all corners of the creative industries.
