allhands4The theme of this meetup was copyright and creativity in online video. Recent developments on YouTube and other platforms have raised questions and worries: How can small creators protect themselves against larger companies that take and embed content? What are some good ways to obtain license-free music? Is it possible to parody clips from broadcast TV or film? What is the most effective way of dealing with an erroneous takedown request?

The roundtable was an opportunity for UK video makers to meet face-to-face and share stories, learn new strategies for dealing with copyright issues and talk about issues of importance in a growing industry. The meetup was hosted by CopyrightUser.org, the UK’s leading resource on copyright for creators.
