Copyright exceptions and best practice codes

ReCreating Europe has produced issue reports outlining the most pressing copyright-related issues and concerns faced by documentary filmmakers and by curators and creators of immersive experiences in the United Kingdom and the Netherlands.
The copyright issues raised by filmmakers related to access (identifying and negotiating with right owners and archives), use (exceptions and limitations/fair dealing vs rights clearance) and distribution (territoriality of the law). The copyright issues raised by curators and creators of immersive digital heritage included: identifying, contacting and negotiating with rights holders, the uncertainties of knowing whether your use is fair/lawful or not, and responsibilities (for infringement and preservation). This was the same in both jurisdictions.
Do documentary filmmakers or immersive cultural heritage practitioners in other jurisdictions experience the same issues?
