It has become essential for companies to keep an inventory record that notes content quality and efficiently use their assets. The best practices for Intellectual Property (IP) and rights management inventory lies in the perfection of seamless procedures from an operational standpoint. Furthermore, inventory tracking is essential for reliable mechanisms of value determination when approaching investors. However, there lies a gap in determining ownership, scope, and status of the IP right.
Owing to the abovementioned scope, gap and challenges, Broadcast Media Africa (BMA), in partnership with Apricity Consulting, will be hosting an online industry forum on “Archives Access And Exploitation: Dealing With Rights And IP Restrictions”. This event is scheduled to occur on Thursday, 10 February 2022, on Zoom.US.
This forum will spotlight challenges and solutions faced by most executives regarding factors affecting the development of sophisticated processes to manage the intellectual property better. Unfortunately, understanding how to protect your intellectual property is often treated as a purely legal issue impacting long term business strategies.
The #PreserveAfricaArchives programme invites the industry to join the event that will assist in illustrating strategies and methods for adopting policies and procedures that would ensure adequate care and handling of AV materials whilst providing comprehensive access.
Key industry players such as Shubha Chaudhuri, who is the Associate Director General ( Academic) and Director Archives at Archives and Research Centre for Ethnomusicology, American Institute of Indian Studies; Papa Kow Acquaye, a State Attorney of IP Office at the Copyright Department Ministry of Justice (Ghana) and Dirk Wilson, the Founding Partner at AdRights will be among those that will headline the online forum.
