Copytrack was accepted by the BAPLA Committee as an official member of the British association for image agencies in mid-August. “The BAPLA membership is a major step in developing further our international cooperations”, comments Marcus Schmitt. “As a partner of the British association we support the common goals to strengthen, protect and raise awareness of copyright. We are looking forward to putting these goals into action together with the many key partners in the UK.” The membership also enables the Berlin-based company to participate in the exchange of information between the UK image industry and further expand their partnerships with local agencies.

For Copytrack, the participation in this year’s BAPLA FOCUS Conference is their first major appearance in the United Kingdom since Fotofringe in April. After the CEPIC Congress Copytrack started to work with image agencies from the UK.

The British Association of Picture Agencies (BAPLA) was founded in 1975. BAPLA represents a wide range of image providers from the fields of stock, press and cultural heritage as well as technology providers and individual companies. The association represents the interests of its members at a national and international level and promotes the exchange of information between its members. BAPLA's cooperation partners include the Digital Media Licensing Association (DMLA) and the international organisation of the picture industry CEPIC, which Copytrack became a member in July of this year.
