Abstract

Over the last decade, the creative industries have been revolutionised by the Internet and the digital economy. The UK, already punching above its weight in the global cultural market, stands at a pivotal moment where it is well placed to build a cultural, business and regulatory infrastructure in which first movers as significant as Google, Facebook, Amazon or iTunes may emerge and flourish, driving new jobs and industry.

However, for some creators and rightsholders the transition from analogue to digital has been as problematic as it has been promising. Cultural heritage institutions are also struggling to capitalise upon new revenue streams that digitisation appears to offer, while maintaining their traditional roles. Policymakers are hampered by a lack of consensus across stakeholders and confused by partisan evidence lacking robust foundations. Research in conjunction with industry is needed to address these problems and provide support for legislators.

CREATe will tackle this regulatory and business crisis, helping the UK creative industry and arts sectors survive, grow and become global innovation pioneers, with an ambitious programme of research delivered by an interdisciplinary team (law, business, economics, technology, psychology and cultural analysis) across 7 universities. CREATe aims to act as an honest broker, using open and transparent methods throughout to provide robust evidence for policymakers and legislators which can benefit all stakeholders.

CREATe will do this by:
- focussing on studying and collaborating with SMEs and individual creators as the incubators of innovation;
- identifying "good, bad and emergent business models": which business models can survive the transition to the digital?, which cannot?, and which new models can succeed and scale to drive growth and jobs in the creative economy, as well as supporting the public sector in times of recession?;
- examining empirically how far copyright in its current form really does incentivise or reward creative work, especially at the SME/micro level, as well as how far innovation may come from "open" business models and the "informal economy";
- monitoring copyright reform initiatives in Europe, at WIPO and other international fora to assess how they impact on the UK and on our work;
- using technology as a solution not a problem: by creating pioneering platforms and tools to aid creators and users, using open standards and released under open licences;
- examining how to increase and derive revenues from the user contribution to the creative economy in an era of social media, mash-up, data mining and "prosumers";
- assessing the role of online intermediaries such as ISPs, social networks and mobile operators to see if they encourage or discourage the production and distribution of cultural goods, and what role they should play in enforcing copyright. Given the important governing role of these bodies should they be subject to regulation like public bodies, and if so, how?;
- consider throughout this work how the public interest and human rights, such as freedom of expression, privacy, and access to knowledge for the socially or physically excluded, may be affected either positively or negatively by new business models and new ways to enforce copyright.

To investigate these issues our work will be arranged into seven themes: SMEs and good, bad and emergent business models; Open business models; Regulation and enforcement; Creators and creative practice; Online intermediaries and physical and virtual platforms; User creation, behaviour and norms; and, Human rights and the public interest. Our deliverables across these themes will be drawn together to inform a Research Blueprint for the UK Creative Economy to be launched in October 2016.

Planned Impact

CREATe's research focus and major impact will concern SMEs and individual creators and performers who typically lack access to legal and IP management advice and technical assistance, vital to commercialising innovative and creative ideas. We will also engage large corporate interests whose influence, resources and global reach will be integral to CREATe's impact and long term sustainability. In addition, we will deliver impact for: the public arts sector who pressingly need legal, business and technical advice around digitisation of holdings, archives and outputs; policymakers who need independent research on the cultural and digital environment, free from stakeholder bias or influence; civil society, who need support in advising citizens and supporting civil liberties and innovation in policy debate; and, users by improving their quality of life.

To optimise impact we have recruited over 75 non-ROs, including individual creators, SMEs, major corporate interests, cultural heritage institutions, and civil society and policy organisations. Should our bid succeed, we also have firm indications of future support from Google, Hewlett Packard, the FA Premier League, PRS for Music, TATE, BBC Research, Creative England, Consumer Focus and Creative Commons. We will also seek dialogue with the IPO, BIS, DCMS, Ofcom, WIPO and the EC Commission. We expect these partnerships to be ongoing, extending impact beyond the funding period. We would also note the regional strength of our research consortium; only 30% of employment in the creative industries is concentrated in London, eg there is significant games industry and media concentration in Scotland.

Industry is notoriously hard to engage with academic research. We draw on the expertise of the University of Glasgow Research & Enterprise, and have learnt from the success of our partners at Horizon who doubled their RCUK funding base from £20m to £40m through industry support in just 2 years. To involve and engage existing a new partners we will:
- Integrate our public sector, civil society, and industry champions into all Centre activities. For example, our industry champion, Frank Boyd of the Creative Industries Knowledge Transfer Network (set up under the Technology Strategy Board) will sit on our Governance and Research Advisory Boards providing access to over 5,500 creative industries enterprises;
- Involve partners in CREATe events and seminar series as speakers, panel organisers and attendees, especially our initial brainstorming and end-of-Centre industry training events;
- Leverage existing mechanisms for funding SME/academic engagement such as Encompass First Step Awards and the SFC Innovation Voucher scheme, and run sand-pit style bidding by industry for project ideas. We will also encourage bidding jointly with industry for funding from TSB, RCUKRC, Arts Council, NESTA, and so on;
- Establish residency and secondment programmes allowing two-way exchange of staff between CREATe and its partners;
- Create outputs specifically tailored for industry, such as: creative industry multi-sector guidance on IP management; our Research Blueprint for the UK Creative Economy; open source tools on data-mining, automated licensing and user interface; co-authored articles for industry journals, and presentations in industry fora. For policymakers and civil society, we will set agendas for debate, respond to consultations and "translate" research from one discipline to another
- Use our international academic partners as well as our existing consortium partner networks to extend impact eg Goldsmiths, Edinburgh and St Andrews' participation in AHRC Creative Knowledge Exchange Hubs (CreativeWorks, Design in Action); Horizon and connections to other Digital Economy Hubs; UEA's high profile in creative writing, media lecture series and London hub; Strathclyde's involvement with EPSRC Bridging the Gap activities, and so on;
- Develop tailored online training modules for industry.

Title CREATe Tartan 
Description Tartan, bound within the history and culture of Scotland, has been documented from the 15th century, made with locally available dyes and worn for both fashion and function in the Highlands. Wearing "Highland dress," including kilts and tartan, was made a criminal offence with the Dress Act of 1746, but following its repeal in 1782, tartan regained popularity in Scotland and abroad. It is now well known to be associated with clans, the Highland games, and heritage. Based on an idea germinated from CREATe researcher Megan Rae Blakely's (University of Glasgow) study of intangible cultural heritage, IP, and cultural branding in Celtic-derived cultures, it was only fitting that CREATe, a consortium with 4 Scottish University members, should have an official tartan. Since a tartan symbolises a group, a family, or even a brand, with communities around the world having created tartans to be worn by their members, the CREATe tartan is based on our academic and professional community, tied together by a shared culture of interdisciplinary research and learning. The CREATe tartan colours were chosen with regard to existing colour psychology symbolising specific aspects: black for CREATe's monochrome logo; red for the UK's partner universities; light purple for creativity and diversity of research themes; dark blue for regulation and law; green for enterprise and inventiveness; and; light yellow for technology and intellect. The CREATe tartan is duly registered with the Scottish Register of Tartans, administered by the National Records of Scotland. The first batch of tartan scarves was woven by Bute Fabrics on the Isle of Bute in the West of Scotland. create.ac.uk/tartan

Description Impact section from CREATe Festival 2016 report: http://festival.create.ac.uk/ The research councils took a risk when they launched the call for a Centre for Copyright and New Business Models in the Creative Economy (that became CREATe), and invited a group of interdisciplinary researchers to plough a contested field. Yet within less than four years, the UK was seen as a pioneer for the analysis of copyright law from an innovation perspective. Alison Brimelow, Chair of CREATe's Programme Advisory Council, a body independent of the researchers and their funders, offers thoughts on the impact of CREATe's research. Alison writes: The Programme Advisory Council (PAC), which I chair, must have a view on the effect CREATe is having if it is to be of any use to CREATe's governing body and funders. One approach is to offer a catalogue of output and citations (of which there are lots and they are impressively diverse). But that seems to me to be rather tough going for a document like this, and better suited to an annual report (or annex thereto). The facts matter, but they are the underpinning of an assessment, not the assessment itself. So I shall start anecdotally. In May I took part in a Symposium in Munich, marking the 50th anniversary of the Max Planck Institute for Competition and Innovation. The Institute is rightly celebrated for its long tradition of rigorous work on Intellectual Property Rights, and I found myself in a large and distinguished company. I was very pleased to find that CREATe was well known and my modest connection with it prompted a lot of admiring comments on the scope of the venture and the quality of work it is producing. Given the reputation of the Institute, and the spread of academic talent from across Europe, and indeed further afield, taking part in the event, that is to my mind a reaction which it is worth recording with satisfaction. The admiration was both for the cross disciplinary nature of the work CREATe undertakes and for the vigour (and rigour) of its output. This is echoed in some of the comments offered by PAC members last year after the European Policy for IP (EPIP 2015) conference in Glasgow. But impressing other academics (however distinguished), while comforting, is not CREATe's key objective. It was called into being to provide evidence which could help to shape policy. After a fairly tranquil second half of the twentieth century, where the working of the system and its utility was widely understood, Intellectual Property policy suddenly found itself wrestling with innovation, the pace and nature of which sometimes left the legislative framework flat footed (or irrelevant) and citizens minded to break the law. But looking at the case for change is not necessarily welcome. As Roger Burt (a distinguished patent attorney and PAC member who served on the Advisory Panel for the 2011 Hargreaves Review) commented on CREATe's performance last year: 'The field of IP is of huge value to companies and commercial organisations; this value means that CREATe will inevitably be dealing with organisations that may have a lot to lose if there are changes in the law or suggestions that they may not be operating in the best interest of society as a whole.' The hazards of working in this territory were nicely illustrated by what happened to the UK copyright exception for personal copies for private use (which was quashed in July 2015 by the High Court following a judicial review against the government brought by three music industry trade bodies). But I would be much more worried about whether CREATe was doing its job effectively if nobody complained. The development of policy is not a binary process. There are many interests and behaviours to assess, particularly where the pace of innovation is fast, and the multidisciplinary approach CREATe can bring to bear is very useful, though it brings some 'learning opportunities' as one discipline discovers that its 'normal approach' is completely foreign to colleagues from another background. But the new way of working does bear fruit, for example in the way CREATe has pioneered a method of combining legal analysis and innovative digital empirical techniques, and the way this work is seen as having 'changed copyright law', not least by helping parody to make money. So far, so good. But as several PAC colleagues have commented, there is a lot more for CREATe to do in building on what it has done and learned so far. It seems to me that there is no reason at all to say 'that is quite enough of that', but rather to say: 'and next we need...'. ______________________________________ 2015 Submission: Since the project is still in progress our impacts are continuing to evolve. They will be consolidated as part of CREATe's final year activity. The following impact case studies were submitted as part of CREATe's 14/15 Annual Report. --- Copyright User - An Online portal providing guidance to copyright law CopyrightUser.org (CU), generated from CREATe research, is an online portal which communicates information about copyright to user-creators, entrepreneurs and laypeople who are not lawyers but need information about how to protect new work and legally use work created by others. Since its launch in March 2014, Copyright User has attracted over 80,000 unique users; 62,000 of whom visited in 2015. The resource has been used by a wide variety of users within the creative industries, cultural heritage organisations, and the education sector; and has been recognised by the Authors' Licensing and Collecting Society "as the most visited UK copyright information website." Copyright User has also had an impact on policy and was featured prominently in the Prime Minister's Intellectual Property Adviser, Mike Weatherley MP's October 2014 report to the Prime Minister on copyright education and awareness (M. Weatherley, Copyright Education and Awareness: A Discussion Paper, October 2014). The report offers a number of recommendations with the goal of achieving "[g]reater coherence and coordination between industry, Government, academia and all other relevant stakeholders to deliver an effective positive message about the importance of IP to all our benefits". Several recommendations explicitly address CREATe and in particular the project CopyrightUser.org. One recommendation of the report suggests that copyright and more generally IP should be included within the National Curriculum in schools. The report highlights the ongoing impact of Copyright User on education through working with partners such as OCR (Oxford, Cambridge and RSA Examinations) on introducing copyright law into the AS/A Level Media Studies curriculum in schools in England and Wales. Copyright User resources and expertise have been sought for consultation by a variety of organisations including the Education Licensing Working Group, Heritage Lottery Fund and British Film Institute (BFI). A wide spectrum of cultural and academic organizations across the UK advise their members or students to refer to Copyright User as useful guidance for copyright queries; these include the British Library, the Chartered Institute of Building, the Chartered Institute of Library & Information Professionals, the Cultural Enterprise Office, the Digital Curation Centre, JISC, London Museums Group, The Publishers Association and a number of UK universities. Professor Richard Paterson from BFI highlighted Copyright User by stating that "It is an excellent and timely project in providing basic pointers to the evolving copyright framework which affects everyone involved in producing or using copyright works." Copyright Evidence - Transforming the evidence base for law making in copyright In a series of policy reports for the UK government, CREATe pioneered a method combining comparative legal analysis and innovative digital empirical techniques (such as computer assisted coding and rights clearance simulation). These studies have transformed the evidence base relating to copyright exceptions, and were cited extensively during the Hargreaves copyright reform process (2011-14), in official impact assessments, in Parliament, in Court as well as in international policy documents. They are seen as "having changed" copyright law. CREATe academics made key contributions to the Copyright Exceptions introduced by the UK government in 2014, after a process that lasted almost a decade, starting with Gowers Review of 2006 and relaunched with the Hargreaves Review of 2011. The new exceptions for "Research, Education, Libraries, and Archives" were redrafted, partly in response to contributions from BILETA and CREATe, led by Professor Ronan Deazley. http://www.create.ac.uk/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/BILETA-CREATe-IPO-response_Research-Libraries-and-Archives_final_20130801.pdf Dr Kris Erickson and Professor Martin Kretschmer contributed three studies on regulatory options and on the economic effects of introducing a copyright exception for "Parody" http://www.create.ac.uk/publications/copyright-and-the-economic-effects-of-parody/ (cited in the Impact Assessment (BIS1057) Copyright exception for parody, p. 10) 'Cassetteboy', leading UK parody artists, have gone on record (ESRC Social Science Festival 11 November 2015) to say that the new Parody exception enabled them for the first time to make money. https://www.youtube.com/user/cassetteboy // Robin Stout, IPO Deputy Director of Copyright also cited CREATe's work on the parody exceptions. The EPIP conference in September 2015 provided a platform for CREATe to direct the discussion on copyright evidence, with leading academics (including Ian Hargreaves), several national economists, politicians (including MEP Julia Reda) and representatives of industry in attendance and contributing as keynote speakers, panellists and session chairs. At the Conference CREATe launched the Copyright Evidence Wiki (www.copyrightevidence.org), an ambitious project that intends to establish a body of evidence that allows better navigation in a contested policy field. Its combination of data and evidence positions the resource at the heart of CREATe's research agenda. The Wiki documents empirical evidence related to copyright - currently 439 individual studies are catalogued and semantically classified to enable discovery, filtering, comparison and visualisation. Classifications extend to issues surrounding studies' policy context, core issues, authorship, methodology and data. The project offers a form of dynamic literature review in a rapidly changing technological, business and socio-legal landscape, as the evidence related to copyright is consistently and transparently updated to account for the most recent findings. The project has been supported by a University of Glasgow ESRC Impact Acceleration Account grant (Theo Koutmeridis, Kris Erickson). The resource has been welcomed and acclaimed by academics and also policy communities, including delegates from the Korean Copyright Commission who visited CREATe in October 2015. In terms of impact we position Wiki as a resource for policy makers, in particular targeted at reform interventions of the EU copyright system announced for 2016/17. Cultural Memory and Copyright Cultural memory institutions are a significant source for learning and innovation, as well as of cultural value. In the UK alone, there are "up to 2,500 museums, 3,393 public libraries, 3,000 community archives, 979 academic libraries and approximately 3,500 trust archives" (IPO 2012). Many of the materials in these institutions are "orphans", i.e. works in which copyright still subsists, but where the rightsholder, whether it be the creator of the work or successor in title, cannot be located. Researchers (Deazley & Stobo) worked with the Wellcome Library's Codebreakers Project http://wellcomelibrary.org/using-the-library/subject-guides/genetics/makers-of-modern-genetics/, to analyse a risk-managed approach to copyright clearance. This led to the development of policy recommendations to enable memory institutions to make their archive collections available online. The project received a tremendous response, with archive services at the Glasgow School of Art http://www.gsaarchives.net and University of Newcastle http://bloodaxe.ncl.ac.uk/explore/index.html#/splash already using this approach to inform their own rights clearance projects. Through training sessions and professional development, the approach has been disseminated to scores of archivists and lawyers, representing over 40 Scottish public and private sector organisations. Deazley and Stobo are copyright advisors to the Scottish Council on Archives and have represented this body at the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) Standing Committee on Copyright & Related Rights, strengthening the archive sector's voice during ongoing treaty negotiations. http://www.scottisharchives.org.uk/projects/toolsstandards/copyright/wipo-sccr Further, in research conducted by Heald, Erickson and Kretschmer, it was found that the digital availability of images in the public domain (hosted by Wikimedia Commons) collectively contributed £138 million per year in economic value to Wikipedia users. The authors found a strong evidence of economically generative ties between museum and archive institutions and the creative industries. The availability of digitised works were frequently cited by research respondents as a key barrier to development and monetisation of products based on the rich public domain of UK culture. The researchers called in their report for the UK Intellectual Property Office on the Government to support archival institutions and digitisation efforts on the basis of this finding. CREATe's recommendations were repeated by MEP Julia Reda (rapporteur of the current review of copyright legislation) during presentation at the European Parliament, in which she called for legislative changes to valorise public domain works in support of freedom of expression and innovation. In the context of mass digitization, CREATe research has explored and sought to characterise the complexities associated with undertaking rights clearance, focusing on a specific resource, the set of Edwin Morgan Scrapbooks held by the Special Collections of the University of Glasgow's Library. The work illustrates current inadequacies with rights clearance and orphan works licensing schemes and has yielded tools that illustrate how opportunities to present digitised content are affected by organisational risk appetite. It will deliver tools to facilitate the process of rights clearance within cultural memory organisations and offer reassurance to practitioners of the legitimacy of their efforts.

Impact CREATe supported the 6th edition of the EUhackathon which took place in Brussels on November 15-16, 2016. The event was organised by N-square Consulting and was sponsored by Google, Facebook, and Mozilla. The EUhackathon revolved around visualising copyright evidence to help inform policy debate and to better support decision making processes. The goal was to combine data and academic research from various sources to raise awareness and encourage debate around the issue of copyright. Participants mined and visualised the data in CREATe's Copyright Evidence Wiki which contains over 600 empirical studies on copyright. To help additional end users to tap into the wealth of data available in the Copyright Evidence Wiki, a user guidance has been now been published.

Title OMeBa (Online Media Behaviour analytics) 
Description OMeBa (Online Media Behaviour analytics) is a user-friendly data tool, which allows users to download and analyse the Ofcom/IPO surveys on infringement, online access and consumption behaviour in the UK. In 2012, the UK's communications regulator (Ofcom) and the Intellectual Property Office (IPO) with the market research company Kantar designed a unique survey that has been repeated in six waves (last in spring 2016). Identifying a need in the academic, policy and industry communities for direct access and easy readability of data in this area, CREATe developed a user-friendly tool, OMeBa, which not only allows users to consistently investigate trends from all six waves but also to perform some interesting cross tabulations, while the results are richly visualised.

Description CREATe Industry Fellows 
Organisation British Film Institute (BFI)
Country United Kingdom of Great Britain & Northern Ireland (UK) 
Sector Learned Society 
PI Contribution CREATe has appointed Industry Fellows in a scheme established to further develop and deepen connections between CREATe and its industrial partners and stakeholders. The four Industry Fellows (Emma Barraclough, Richard Paterson, Jeremy Silver and Bob Last) have worked in collaboration with CREATe over a period of several months. CREATE disseminates their outputs. The call for participation required applicants to submit a short project proposal that involved a reflection on and analysis of a topic of pressing importance or of future significance for the creative economy.
Collaborator Contribution Emma Barraclough is a business and legal journalist. She spent more than a decade as a writer and editor at Managing IP, a leading journal for intellectual property owners, users and their lawyers, including three years as the magazine's Asia editor in Hong Kong. She has a background in politics and Chinese studies and qualified as a solicitor before beginning her career in legal publishing. She recently completed an MA in Globalisation and Multinational Corporations at SOAS. Academic research has traditional ways of dissemination, such as research journals and academic conferences, avenues which are not readily accessible to the general public or even strategic stakeholders such as industry groups and policy makers. Emma brings to the fellowship a wealth of experience in trade journalism. She will act as a bridge between academia and industry by applying her journalistic skills to bring academic research to a wider readership. The fellowship will also provide a wider visibility to CREATe research through industry journals as well as other specialist dissemination outlets (although more mainstream than academic publications). Richard Paterson is currently Head of Research and Scholarship at the BFI responsible for developing the BFI's research collaborations with universities as well as the development of much of the BFI's policy work in relation to IPR, broadcasting and new media. He has published widely in the field of film and television studies including many articles based on a pioneering longitudinal study on careers and creativity in the television industry - the Industry Tracking Study - funded by the ESRC in the late 1990s. Richard's contribution entitled Modelling the Evolution of the TV Drama production sector in the UK will extend and develop his earlier work, involving an analysis of the evolution of the independent production sector in the UK, with a specific focus on drama production companies in order to model how firms adapt their business models and operations to changing market conditions and regulatory interventions. Richard aims to identify what factors influence the success of television drama production companies, exploring why only some companies achieve sufficient scale, why some entrepreneurially-driven independent companies fail to continue to expand and the extent of differences in the profile of commissions before and after acquisition for companies focusing on drama. He'll then reflect on the policy implications. Given the acknowledged impact of the broader context and in particular regulatory changes and other interventions on the business model of these firms are there measures that might be adopted to forestall acquisition by foreign companies? Jeremy Silver is an entrepreneur, author and strategic advisor. He is a member of the UK Creative industries Council. He is Chairman of MusicGlue and SupaPass. He was Executive Chairman of Semetric (recently acquired by Apple). He is advisor to InnovateUK, Bridgeman Art Library and Growth Intelligence. He was a strategic advisor to Shazam. He was CEO of Sibelius Software (acquired by Avid) and Worldwide Vice-President of New Media for EMI Group in Los Angeles. His book "Digital Medieval: the first twenty years of music on the web and the Next Twenty" is available in paperback and electronically. Variants of so-called block-chain technology have been the subject of much discussion recently as a potential new enabler of "transparent, equitable and non-discriminatory" transactions in the music industry. Jeremy is inquiring into whether the technology presents an opportunity to solve several of the music industry's challenges, offering a new business model that is better than subscription, a means to produce a publicly accessible global repertoire database that would contain both publishing and recording rights data and be updated regularly and accurately, and a new means of music discovery that would allow consumers to navigate music creatively and intuitively. Jeremy will explore in a series of interviews with key technology and business stakeholders the latest thinking surrounding block-chain technologies, considering business model implications, rights, IP and licensing issues associated with its potential adoption by the music industry. Furthermore, he will compare block-chain with existing market alternatives and seek to identify challenges associated with its adoption by the music industry. In May 2016, CREATe sponsored the Music Ally event 'Blockchain Music Without The Middlemen' which served as the launch for Jeremy's "Blockchain or the chaingang?" report - the first ever in-depth report on what blockchain really means for the music industry. The event also provided a forum to help build a practical consensus around the next steps to enable the industry to take full advantage of blockchain technologies.

His report was published under the auspices of CREATe's Industrial Fellowship scheme.Bob authored Connecting creativity, value and money. Bob undertook the research for this paper when he chaired the CEO Board, and was then particularly interested in the question of access to finance for those engaged in creative work.

Description CREATe Industry Fellows 
Organisation Cultural Enterprise Office
Country United Kingdom of Great Britain & Northern Ireland (UK) 
Sector Charity/Non Profit 
PI Contribution CREATe has appointed Industry Fellows in a scheme established to further develop and deepen connections between CREATe and its industrial partners and stakeholders. The four Industry Fellows (Emma Barraclough, Richard Paterson, Jeremy Silver and Bob Last) have worked in collaboration with CREATe over a period of several months. CREATE disseminates their outputs. The call for participation required applicants to submit a short project proposal that involved a reflection on and analysis of a topic of pressing importance or of future significance for the creative economy.
Collaborator Contribution Emma Barraclough is a business and legal journalist. She spent more than a decade as a writer and editor at Managing IP, a leading journal for intellectual property owners, users and their lawyers, including three years as the magazine's Asia editor in Hong Kong. She has a background in politics and Chinese studies and qualified as a solicitor before beginning her career in legal publishing. She recently completed an MA in Globalisation and Multinational Corporations at SOAS. Academic research has traditional ways of dissemination, such as research journals and academic conferences, avenues which are not readily accessible to the general public or even strategic stakeholders such as industry groups and policy makers. Emma brings to the fellowship a wealth of experience in trade journalism. She will act as a bridge between academia and industry by applying her journalistic skills to bring academic research to a wider readership. The fellowship will also provide a wider visibility to CREATe research through industry journals as well as other specialist dissemination outlets (although more mainstream than academic publications). Richard Paterson is currently Head of Research and Scholarship at the BFI responsible for developing the BFI's research collaborations with universities as well as the development of much of the BFI's policy work in relation to IPR, broadcasting and new media. He has published widely in the field of film and television studies including many articles based on a pioneering longitudinal study on careers and creativity in the television industry - the Industry Tracking Study - funded by the ESRC in the late 1990s. Richard's contribution entitled Modelling the Evolution of the TV Drama production sector in the UK will extend and develop his earlier work, involving an analysis of the evolution of the independent production sector in the UK, with a specific focus on drama production companies in order to model how firms adapt their business models and operations to changing market conditions and regulatory interventions. Richard aims to identify what factors influence the success of television drama production companies, exploring why only some companies achieve sufficient scale, why some entrepreneurially-driven independent companies fail to continue to expand and the extent of differences in the profile of commissions before and after acquisition for companies focusing on drama. He'll then reflect on the policy implications. Given the acknowledged impact of the broader context and in particular regulatory changes and other interventions on the business model of these firms are there measures that might be adopted to forestall acquisition by foreign companies? Jeremy Silver is an entrepreneur, author and strategic advisor. He is a member of the UK Creative industries Council. He is Chairman of MusicGlue and SupaPass. He was Executive Chairman of Semetric (recently acquired by Apple). He is advisor to InnovateUK, Bridgeman Art Library and Growth Intelligence. He was a strategic advisor to Shazam. He was CEO of Sibelius Software (acquired by Avid) and Worldwide Vice-President of New Media for EMI Group in Los Angeles. His book "Digital Medieval: the first twenty years of music on the web and the Next Twenty" is available in paperback and electronically. Variants of so-called block-chain technology have been the subject of much discussion recently as a potential new enabler of "transparent, equitable and non-discriminatory" transactions in the music industry. Jeremy is inquiring into whether the technology presents an opportunity to solve several of the music industry's challenges, offering a new business model that is better than subscription, a means to produce a publicly accessible global repertoire database that would contain both publishing and recording rights data and be updated regularly and accurately, and a new means of music discovery that would allow consumers to navigate music creatively and intuitively. Jeremy will explore in a series of interviews with key technology and business stakeholders the latest thinking surrounding block-chain technologies, considering business model implications, rights, IP and licensing issues associated with its potential adoption by the music industry. Furthermore, he will compare block-chain with existing market alternatives and seek to identify challenges associated with its adoption by the music industry.

Title IPWatchr 
Description IP Watchr and OMeBa (see above) are two analytical and visualisation-based software programs created by CREATe data developer Jesús Rodríguez Pérez (University of Glasgow). As social media becomes more integral to our lives, users are increasingly using it to share links for downloading multimedia files containing predominantly movies, television series and computer software. IP Watchr is a web based platform with an underlying software for real-time tracking of illegal downloads on social media and p2p networks. The design was derived from the question; "Is there a connection between Facebook 'likes' for a multimedia product and the number of downloads on torrent platforms for the same product?". The tool is flexible enough to accommodate other questions pertaining to this area of research. For example, it will be extended to track the behaviour of users and their social network towards downloading files, as well as to visualise the real-time data generated by these accounts and its derivatives.

Primary Audience Policymakers/politicians
Results and Impact CREATe has been asking: what is the role of copyright, among alternative modes of identification, appropriation and finance? Some see copyright as salvation, some as the enemy of innovation. CREATe's research programme has been addressing this faultline.

The event featured policy debates and expert panels that explored the future of the creative economy, the interface of digital innovation and legal regulation, and in particular the role of copyright law. Attendees took part in behavioural experiments, attended workshops on fashion IP, and art forgery, and interacted with fellow online video creators in a meet-up. There was a hackathon video presentation as well as the launch of CREATe's very own tartan!

The Festival partnered with London Technology Week, (which formed a series of events taking place throughout London that celebrates and connects innovators from leading R&D centres, tech businesses, universities and specialist hubs).

On the eve of the Festival, CREATe published a legacy report titled "CREATe 2012-2016: Impact on society, industry and policy through research excellence and knowledge exchange" (edited by Kerry Patterson & Sukhpreet Singh).

Results and Impact The Copyright Education Symposium took place on 24th May 2016 at the offices of the British Recorded Music Industry (BPI) in London, bringing together an unprecedented gathering of policymakers, academics, creative industry representatives, independent consultants and information professionals. The aim of the Symposium was to explore the role that evidence and data can play in the copyright education and awareness arena, as well as to examine how evaluation of data collection, research and education initiatives might take shape in the future. The event - conceived by Scott Walker and Prof. Ruth Soetendorp - was sponsored by CREATe, ALCS, CLA, ERA, PRS for Music, the Industry Trust for IP Awareness and supported by the UK Intellectual Property Office (IPO).
Two papers were originally produced to inform the day:

CREATe research paper by Hayleigh Bosher, An Explorative Review of Copyright Education: Studies & Resources
Context paper by Scott Walker and Prof. Ruth Soetendorp, providing a snapshot of stakeholders' views across the UK copyright education and awareness landscape.
The event was opened by the IP Minister, Baroness Neville-Rolfe (now Minister of State at the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy), the PRS for Music CEO, Robert Ashcroft, and the IPO Chief Economist, Pippa Hall.

Results and Impact "The theme of the 6th edition of the EUhackathon revolves around visualising copyright evidence to inform the policy debate and support the decision making process. The goal is to combine data and academic research from various sources to help create a clearer picture of the issues at stake in copyright, as sometimes the full story is difficult to grasp. The UK Centre for Copyright and New Business Models in the Creative Economy (CREATe), which supports this event, has set-up a Copyright Evidence Wiki containing approximately 500 studies, which facilitates data mining and the creation of visualisations. This evidence could be complemented with industry data and reports, in order to achieve a greater transparency and awareness in the area of copyright.

The challenge is to (1) create visualisations of copyright evidence based on the data sources available at the Copyright Evidence Wiki and other external resources and/or to (2) enhance the Copyright Evidence Wiki to enable others to easily create visualisations of the data available.

Results and Impact n 2016, ISHTIP will be hosted by CREATe, the RCUK Copyright Centre, University of Glasgow, Scotland, UK. Scotland was the home of booksellers such as Alexander Donaldson who sought to resist the monopolistic practices of their established London-based rivals, in the so-called Battle of the Booksellers of the eighteenth century. The patriotic Scottish booksellers, newcomers to the trade, sold cheap reprints of books sold by the London booksellers, including those in which statutory copyright, under the Statute of Anne 1710, had expired. The London booksellers responded with a series of lawsuits culminating in Donaldson v. Becket (1774), relying inter alia on copyright at common law, against which the Scots resisted. As Donaldson expressed in petitioning the House of Commons in 1774: 'your petitioner has had to struggle with the united force of almost all the eminent booksellers of London and Westminster above one hundred of the most opulent booksellers have in their turn, been plaintiffs against your petitioner'. The resulting cases and more general debate about the nature of literary property are today remembered as a historic occasion on which the nature of copyright, as well as the more general notion of property in intangibles, was fully debated.

Taking the theme of 'resistance' as its starting point, we intend the 8th Annual Workshop to be a further occasion for the full debate of the theory and history of intellectual property!

Results and Impact "The European Commission has launched plans to modernize EU copyright rules for the digital era. The existing rules date back to 2001, well before the explosion in popularity of e-books and video- and music-streaming services. Among the issues the Commission plans to address are:

- Consumers' frustration at 'unjustified geo-blocking', being denied access to digital content they have paid for outside their home country;
- Making it easier to distribute digital content throughout the EU;
- Ensuring that creators are fairly paid for their work.

This event will bring together senior policymakers and key stakeholders from the creative industries to discuss whether the proposed changes to copyright rules will meet the challenge of protecting intellectual property and funding models in the digital era and creating a well-functioning market for digital content."

Regarding the former, the webinar will illustrate which rights (e.g. right of reproduction and right of distribution) can be triggered by TDM activities and what this entails. Regarding the latter, available exceptions and limitations will be analysed in an attempt to offer an overview of when (and where) an existing copyright exception could cover TDM activities. This part included the recent draft proposal for a Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market and other national initiatives. Finally, copyright licences and the ways in which the OpenMinTeD project intends to favour legal and metadata interoperability among the many different and often incompatible licences and terms of use will be discussed.

Results and Impact Digitising Photographs: Copyright Duration and Diligent Search - workshop

Digitising photographs poses very specific challenges. It is not always easy to work out whether a photograph is in copyright, or when the copyright term expires. And photographs that are in copyright may be orphan works: lacking any contextual information that might help identify the relevant copyright owner.

This expert workshop addressed these related issues. It provided an overview of the duration of copyright protection as it relates to photographs, a notoriously complicated area of law. In addition, it provided practical guidance on how to conduct a diligent search for orphan photographs under both the European Orphan Works Directive and the UK Orphan Works Licensing Scheme: what sources are useful in conducting a search, and what level of diligence is required? This workshop was organized for anyone interested in digitising photographs from archive and other collections.
