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

Exploitation Route See above our main achievements to date include -

CREATe has become a key player in a change of policy perspective. The role of copyright law in promoting creativity and innovation is now seen as open to empirical investigation, and CREATe has supplied credible and widely cited evidence, becoming recognised as a global leader in the field within a very short time. The CREATe brand is distinct and internationally acknowledged. For example the Annual Conference of the European Policy for Intellectual Property (EPIP) Association meeting hosted at the University of Glasgow in 2015 focussed for the first time on copyright, and received a wide echo.

Our digital resources define a new field of enquiry, and have been used by hundreds of thousands of people from 161 countries. We developed and co-produced CopyrightEvidence.org, CopyrightUser.org (with Bournemouth University & Queen's University Belfast) and CopyrightHistory.org (with University of Cambridge).

Peer production of digital resources can create an open knowledge environment that is particularly suitable for interdisciplinary fields. CREATe has demonstrated that it is possible to involve users in research design and the development of open access platforms.
CREATe has focused on achieving two kinds of impact:

Influencing copyright reform, by inducing a shift to evidence-based standards in a highly polarised debate (previously dominated by the language of 'copy-right' vs 'copy-left', 'piracy' and 'enforcement').

Enabling the creative industries to develop a much wider range of behavioural options relating to copyright.

Description Director's introduction to Final Report to AHRC: Reflecting on the extraordinary five years I spent in the Schleudersitz, the ejection seat in the cockpit of CREATe, it is obvious that foresight is not something researchers possess. But that does not mean that research in a rapidly changing world is impossible or pointless. Are creative industries becoming a subset of data intensive industries? This is a radical challenge that we did not anticipate at the conception of the CREATe project in 2012. Yet it emerged strongly from our research into the changing conditions of creative production. All online behaviour is potentially observable, and whoever controls this data infrastructure will have a stake in the creative economy that is very different from the role of earlier cultural intermediaries. This change particularly affects firms with a long tradition of exploiting back catalogues of rights but also opens opportunities for new digital entrants and for cultural memory organisations (such as archives and museums). Conventionally, content was consumed, but now these 'consumers' are playing a more active role (for example creating playlists, retweets and user-generated content) and content is targeted based on the demographics of users. CREATe research revealed the emergence of a creative ecosystem that links multiple social groups through mobile access and social media. Platforms are not just distributors, they may finance creative production. CREATe research also shows how important it is to understand the interface between copyright law and algorithms (that may predict the content served). Artificial intelligence relies on large amounts of data, and these come from human activities on platforms that are social and cultural - the traditional domain of the creative industries. For creative economy businesses and policymakers, I would highlight the following insights from our research: CREATe research demonstrates that different sectors of the creative economy face very different challenges. 'Born digital' firms behave very differently than the owners of back catalogues that are being challenged by new 'platform' intermediaries. The labour market for some primary creators has become more difficult, for example for journalists and photographers, but commercial success has always been the exception. There are continuities in the dynamics of cultural production and consumption, and the supply of creative content overall has increased. While we can no longer say that copyright law is an evidence-free zone, there remains considerable tension between the emerging empirical evidence and entrenched beliefs. Even perfectly enforced copyright law is not a safeguard against technological change, and it can be a serious obstacle to innovation. For academe, my chief lessons from the CREATe project include: Engagement with stakeholders is not a burden but an opportunity (as long as the independence of academic enquiry is acknowledged and protected). CREATe has taken great care to expose our research design and methods to scrutiny by academic peers, by industry and policy users of research. We aim to make copyright law and empirical evidence accessible to the wider society. Transparency is an insurance policy in a contested policy field. What skills are needed to investigate the digital creative economy? The capacity to conduct innovative, multidisciplinary research remains fragile. Embedding of skills needs a sustained effort and career opportunities. We need, for example, microeconomists focussing on innovation and the details of legal intervention; data developers for the analysis of new types of online data; lawyers at ease with empirical methods such as interviewing, ethnography and computer assisted content analysis. In my view, our main achievements to date include - CREATe has become a key player in a change of policy perspective. The role of copyright law in promoting creativity and innovation is now seen as open to empirical investigation, and CREATe has supplied credible and widely cited evidence, becoming recognised as a global leader in the field within a very short time. The CREATe brand is distinct and internationally acknowledged. For example the Annual Conference of the European Policy for Intellectual Property (EPIP) Association meeting hosted at the University of Glasgow in 2015 focussed for the first time on copyright, and received a wide echo. Our digital resources define a new field of enquiry, and have been used by hundreds of thousands of people from 161 countries. We developed and co-produced CopyrightEvidence.org, CopyrightUser.org (with Bournemouth University & Queen's University Belfast) and CopyrightHistory.org (with University of Cambridge). Peer production of digital resources can create an open knowledge environment that is particularly suitable for interdisciplinary fields. CREATe has demonstrated that it is possible to involve users in research design and the development of open access platforms. Copyright law does not cause famine or war, but the laws that regulate the infrastructure of the digital world affect every aspect of our lives, our cultural, social and economic development. The overlap of copyright law with data-driven policy interventions needs to be taken seriously. We are only at the beginning of an epochal change. Impact Case Study (1) Evidence for Copyright Policy *Kretschmer's research has influenced copyright reform in the UK and the EU, by inducing a shift to evidence-based standards in a highly polarised debate (dominated by the language of piracy, and "copy-right" vs "copy-left" ideologies). 1. The evidence used to support the UK copyright exceptions enacted on 1 October 2014 as part of the Implementation of the Hargreaves Review relies on several CREATe studies. Specifically, the impact assessment for the new Exception for Parody relies on the following report, also published as CREATe working paper 2013/04: K. Erickson, M. Kretschmer, D. Mendis (2013). 'Copyright and the Economic Effects of Parody: An empirical study of music videos on the YouTube platform, and an assessment of regulatory options', Independent Report for the UK Intellectual Property Office (26pp). There is a clear citation trail with multiple references in government documents. 2. Kretschmer is a leading contributor to the ongoing process of EU copyright reform. Specifically, Arts. 3 (exception for text and data mining), 11 (press publishers' right) and 13 (intermediary liability) of the Proposed Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market (COM(2016) 593 final) have been amended following a European wide academic intervention led by Kretschmer: http://www.create.ac.uk/policy-responses/eu-copyright-reform/ This is still a moving target. The proposed Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market is at the Committee Stage but already there is a clear citation trail with multiple references in official documents and hearings. Impact Case Study (2) CopyrightUser.org - Improving the capacity of creative entrepreneurs, cultural heritage practitioners and educators to make decisions about exploitation and re-use of cultural materials.CREATe's CopyrightUser.org portal has become the UK's most visited copyright guidance site (with 300,000 unique users since launch in March 2014). We are seeking to enable the creative sector to develop a much wider range of behavioural optionsrelating to copyright: we do this by understanding creators, entrepreneurs, educators and consumers as 'users' of copyright. Small creative firms often describe a tension between 'exploring' new original ideas and 'exploiting' the ideas and content of others. Cultural heritage practitioners involved in digitisation projects face challenges posed by rights clearance. Teachers are often unsure about what materials they can use in the classroom. Decisions are influenced heavily by perceptions - and often misconceptions - around copyright law. CopyrightUser.org responds to the need of creative, cultural, and education sectors for independent, authoritative and accessible copyright guidance. Prior to this initiative, media professionals, cultural heritage practitioners, teachers and students, and member of the public looking for copyright guidance could only find either technical and complex information provided by the government, or 'anti-piracy' campaigns conducted by industry organisations. The case study demonstrates take-up of the CopyrightUser.org portal and identifies the pathways to behavioural change. 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. Copyright law governs the use of a wide range of cultural materials. In the digital environment, it is increasingly difficult to know whether these materials can be used, and how permissions should be sought. UofG-led researchers have informed and coordinated an academic response to proposed European Union (EU) copyright legislation-the first time an evidence-led perspective has played a part in this legislative process. In an effort to better understand the needs of copyright 'users', empirical research has also led to the development of the UK's most visited copyright guidance website. Research findings and related resources have informed policy makers and shaped the professional practice of the creative sector workers, significantly enabling digital innovation. In the digital environment, copyright law has become an increasingly important issue. Every activity on a mobile phone, computer or network involves acts of copying. Copyright law has effects that go far beyond regulating the behaviour of competitors in the same industry sector-such as protecting a publisher against a re-publisher. Understanding copyright law as a tool of innovation policy requires a new approach that should feed into policy making. The change in perspective advocated by the underpinning research-from protecting and rewarding rightholders to facilitating innovation-is set within the context of CREATe, the UK Copyright and Creative Economy Centre hosted by the UofG School of Law (funded as an RCUK Centre by AHRC/EPSRC/ ESRC from 2012-2017 and as part of the AHRC Creative Industries Policy & Evidence Centre from 2018-2023).

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.

Description Primary Sources on Copyright is a digital archive of primary sources on copyright from the invention of the printing press (c. 1450) to the Berne Convention (1886) and beyond. The UK Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) funded the initial phase (completed in 2008) focusing on key materials from Renaissance Italy (Venice, Rome), France, the German speaking countries, Britain and the United States. For each of the thirteen geographical zones/jurisdictions represented within the resource, a national editor has taken responsibility for selecting, sourcing, transcribing, translating and commenting documents. These include privileges, statutes, judicial decisions, contracts and materials relating to legislative history, but also contemporary letters, essays, treatises and artefacts.

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 
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. Bob Last has vast experience in the creative industries, starting in the business as an independent record label owner, producer and manager. He subsequently produced feature films and documentaries, including Sylvain Chomet's multi award-winning and Oscar-nominated The Illusionist, Terence Davies's critically-acclaimed Sunset Song, and BAFTA-winning children's animated series OOglies. For a decade he has been actively engaged with public policy issues that impact on creative businesses and was Chair of the Board of Cultural Enterprise Office from 2009-2014. 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. The study itself, financed by the Scottish Government, mutated in the course of investigation to become an analysis of the tensions between economic and aesthetic calculations made by those working across a range of art forms and evolved into an argument for rethinking the bases of creative industries policy. The paper was published in July 2016 in collaboration with the Cultural Enterprise Office (CEO).

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. 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. Bob Last has vast experience in the creative industries, starting in the business as an independent record label owner, producer and manager. He subsequently produced feature films and documentaries, including Sylvain Chomet's multi award-winning and Oscar-nominated The Illusionist, Terence Davies's critically-acclaimed Sunset Song, and BAFTA-winning children's animated series OOglies. For a decade he has been actively engaged with public policy issues that impact on creative businesses and was Chair of the Board of Cultural Enterprise Office from 2009-2014. 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. The study itself, financed by the Scottish Government, mutated in the course of investigation to become an analysis of the tensions between economic and aesthetic calculations made by those working across a range of art forms and evolved into an argument for rethinking the bases of creative industries policy. The paper was published in July 2016 in collaboration with the Cultural Enterprise Office (CEO).

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). The full schedule for the event is available on the CREATe Festival website.http://festival.create.ac.uk/

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.

The opening was followed by the screening of a short video featuring students from University of Hertfordshire expressing their views on copyright education (below), and a series of presentations of current research and resources, including Copyright Infringement Survey (James Burke, Kantar Media), Copyright User (Bartolomeo Meletti, CREATe and BFI), BBC Copyright Aware (Matt Day, BBC), and Creative Content UK (Marianne Grant, MPAA).

Results and Impact The Early Career Research Camp was the capstone event in the PhD and early career capacity building activities of the first phase of the RCUK-funded CREATe Centre anchored at the University of Glasgow. The two-day intensive workshop provided the opportunity to engage with emerging scholars from around the UK working on the 'creative economy' theme. The purpose of this event was twofold: to develop interdisciplinary research skills of young scholars and to map out future capacity-building and research needs for study of the UK creative economy. This event arose from CREATe's ambition to aid development of a new generation of researchers with skills to address questions relating to the future of creative production. Over the five years of its initial funded phase, CREATe has innovated and refined new formats for PhD and early career (ECR) capacity building, and this event represents application of learnings from the previous PhD and ECR training activity. For example, CREATe has previously organised focused capacity-building events on themes of integrating technology into research, socio-legal research methods and primary research with creators. In the period from January 2016 - May 2017, CREATe hosted 13 PhD training events, engaging a total of 598 participants. This workshop was led by Dr Kristofer Erickson, CREATe Lecturer in IP and Innovation, and Director of CREATe Postgraduate Research Development.

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!

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."

Results and Impact The webinar focused on the complex and fragmented EU copyright framework which applies to activities relevant for Text and Data Mining purposes. The general legal landscape will be briefly presented in order to identify limits and opportunities offered by current copyright rules. 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.
