The Centre welcomed two new members in April. Philip Kolvin QC joined as an Associate Fellow, see the University news item here. We also welcomed Dr Holly Hancock to the Centre, Holly gained her PhD from UEA in 2018 and has taught on the LLM Entertainment Law programme since 2019. Her research interests revolve around photography and privacy law and we have some interesting plans in store for the Centre based around this. A warm welcome to both.

We were due to host a series of events as part of the Soho Poly Arts Club from March, this was obviously impacted by the lockdown.

Sir Richard Arnold, Visiting Professor at Westminster Law School and Associate Fellow of the Centre had an article published, ‘Paintings from Photographs: A Copyright Conundrum’, IIC (2019) 50:860–878.
