In order to bring archival materials held in film archives online and giving access to them, rights clearing is a central topic in the framework of the EFG project. EYE Film Institute, one of EFG’s project partners, has established a report on Guidelines for Copyright Clearance and IPR Management.
The report includes:
+ an overview of legal frameworks in EU countries for the film sector
+ guidelines how to successfully clear rights related to film works
+ copyright basics (moral rights vs. exploitation rights, orphan works etc) [for 13 European countries]
+ diligent search guidelines for rights hold
