Hello, I am a trustee of a small heritage charity. We are making a film of the heritage sites in our area; the focus being on the Saxon era. We want to use photos of iconic Saxon era artefacts which are on exhibition at the British Museum, British Library and other museums. I want to know if we can use privately taken photos of these exhibits without breaching copyright law. These photos are allowed to be taken (i.e. there is no 'no photos allowed') bar in place. Please advise and if possible refer to reference / case material to support your response. Thank you. Peter O'Sullivan
Thank you; to clarify two points
1) my quest is not related to 'heritage sites' as such; rather to artefacts from these sites which are on exhibition in a museum such as the British Museum
2) As in my first response are you able to point me to reference / case material that I can use in my briefing to the trustees of our charity
Thank you. Peter
Alex, thank you. This is very clear. Peter
