Knowledge about the rights that cover (parts of) your archive or collections is important if you want to reproduce, (re)use or unlock them. As (co-)author or creator of a document or object, you also have copyrights. If you want to reuse or make another author’s work available, you need to respect their copyrights. It’s also important to make clear agreements with third parties when creating new works. Carefully noting down who the rightsholders are at the moment of creation, and what rights cover items in your archive and collections, simplifies reuse at a later date.
In this section, you can read what rights could come into play and how you clarify them when you want to reuse content which you aren’t the (only) rightsholder for. You will also become acquainted with the possibilities of Creative Commons licences and the impact of privacy laws (GDPR) on your archive and collection operations.
