UK: FInal Action Call for ERRB Clause 79

Monday, 15 April 2013 01:44

stop43-UK-300Call to Action!

On Tuesday 16th April the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill enters its final Parliamentary phase before becoming law. This is your last chance to remove from it the damaging Orphan Works and Extended Collective Licensing Clause 79Please contact your MP and other Parliamentarians, making the following recommendations:

  1. Remove the Orphan Works and Extended Collective Licensing Clause 79 from the ERR Bill
  2. Implement the EU Orphan Works Directive at the last possible moment, because it directs us to breach our obligations to foreign rights owners under the Berne Convention
  3. Revisit IP in an Intellectual Property Bill once the Copyright Hub is operational and the government has a metadata policy, which at the moment it does not
  4. Return responsibility for copyright to the Department for Culture, Media and Sport. Patentsare limited formal economic rights granted by Government upon application, and rightly handled by the Patents Office (which is an Agency of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, and of which ‘Intellectual Property Office’ is an operating name). Copyright is an informal automatic combined economic, cultural and human right. It is far more appropriate for the Department for Culture to be responsible for this more subtle right than the Department for Business.

William Eggleston to be honoured at 2013 Sony World Photography Awards

Monday, 08 April 2013 03:40

World Photo EgglestonRenowned American photographer William Eggleston has been announced as the recipient of the 2013 Sony World Photography Awards’ Outstanding Contribution to Photography award.

Eggleston will be honoured at the Sony World Photography Awards Gala Ceremony in London on Thursday 25 April. A special display of his work will be shown at Somerset House as part of the 2013 Sony World Photography Awards Exhibition and rarely seen images will be published in the 2013 edition of the Sony World Photography Awards winners’ book.

Recognised today as the pioneer of colour photography and the personal documentary style, William Eggleston has been producing cutting-edge work for over fifty years. Since first picking up a camera in 1957, Eggleston’s work is said to find ‘beauty in the everyday’. His images capture the ordinary world around him, creating interest through sharp observation, dynamic composition and great wit.

His ground-breaking 1976 show at the Museum of Modern Art, New York moved colour photography from the field of advertising to being recognised as an artform unto itself. His influence on contemporary photography and photographers is far-reaching and has inspired the likes of Martin Parr, Sofia Coppola, Andreas Gurksy and Juergen Teller.
