ABOUT SCREENRIGHTS RESOLUTION

Screenrights Resolution serves to assist Screenrights members with their resolution of competing claims, if and when they arise. In most cases, our members are able to resolve a competing claim between themselves. However, there are times where further assistance may be required.

Screenrights Resolution offers a range of resolution pathways to assist in these circumstances.

INDEPENDENT ORGANISATION

The Resolution Institute

Where a member has requested that an independent organisation appoint an independent expert to make a decision, or in circumstances where Screenrights elects for a decision it is called upon to make to be deferred to an independent expert, the Resolution Team seeks the services of Resolution Institute to arrange for an appropriate expert.

All nominations provided by Resolution Institute are revealed to the members involved in the independent expert determination, should any concerns arise regarding potential conflicts of interests.
