Merel gives an interactive and educational lecture about copyright. The main question she addresses is if copyright is still viable in the future. Who actually owns a photo or text? Can you use it for work or private or not at all? If you are depicted in a photo, is it then automatically yours? And can you share it on social media? Or can you get a fine or even end up in a lawsuit.

Merel Teunissen is a lawyer at Versteeg Wigman Sprey and teaches at the Theaterschool in Amsterdam. She’s editor at Mediaforum, a magazine about communication law.
