What copyright issues need to be considered?

If you want to use the drawings and reported experiences for educational or awareness-raising materials you should also make sure participants are aware that they will retain the copyright (intellectual property) for the drawings, and ask them if they will grant you a free-of-charge, non-exclusive, non-transferable and non-commercial license to use the drawings and commentaries for your specific purposes. It is also important that you inform participants they can withdraw their consent at any time and that you explain the mechanism to do so (e.g., by emailing you).
