Subject: A Voluntary Code of Practice on Creating and Retaining Metadata in
Images: Consultation
To: clsg at clsg.info

The Copyright Licensing Steering Group (CLSG), established to oversee
delivery of the recommendations from *Copyright Works* (Richard Hooper's
report into simplifying copyright licensing), is running a consultation on
a voluntary Code of Practice for creating and retaining Metadata in images.

The draft Code of Practice focuses on the inclusion and preservation of
licensing metadata which can have huge benefits for both image creators and
business users. It suggests a way forward to ensure that creators can get
full recognition and, where applicable, compensation for their work and
users of all types can be reassured that their use of an image does not
infringe copyright.

The draft code does not affect any rights or obligations under current
copyright law.

The draft Code of Practice can be accessed at: www.clsg.info/**
codeofpractice.html <http://www.clsg.info/codeofpractice.html>

We are seeking views on the draft Code of Practice from creators, licensors
and users (both professional and amateur). Responses to questions contained
in the consultation document should be sent to clsg at clsg.info.

The consultation will close on *28th* *August 2013*.

Kind regards
Ros Lynch
Copyright Licensing Coordination Office
