Copyright considerations

Inside a modern studio.

The BGS's photographs, like many other photographs produced elsewhere, are copyright protected materials. The photographic department works closely with the intellectual property rights (IPR) section, who are responsible for the granting of permits for the reproduction of the BGS's photographs and other materials.

The IPR Manager has been closely involved in the development of the BGS's online provision of images and combined copyright permissions delivered through the internet.

The photographic section will soon also be accessible via links from a number of other key web sites, including the British Association of Picture Libraries and Agencies, and the British Institute of Professional Photography.

For further information on the NAGP, or any of the services offered by the photo-graphic departments, please contact either James Rayner (Keyworth) or Fergus MacTaggart (Edinburgh).
