In the section Right Clearance the discussion heated up. The first presentation about right clearance in film by Geraldine Vooren (EYE) explained the process of the diligent search for rights holders. Her presentation was followed up by a duo presentation of Judith Moortgat (Dutch National Archives) and Arlette Bekink (Project manager collective rights, Pictoright). Their presentation dealt with an evaluation of the (extended) collective licensing arrangements between Pictoright and the Dutch National Archives. This turns out to be a hot topic with a lot of contradictory opinions, fueling a heated discussion.
