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 and 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.

No 1. Summary of the impact Copyright law governs the use of a wide range of cultural materials. In the digital age, it is increasingly difficult to know whether these materials can be used, and how permissions should be sought. UofG research has: (i) produced evidence to inform the EU copyright debate. From 2015 onwards, Kretschmer coordinated an academic response to proposed EU legislation, which persuaded a majority of MEPs to reject the first negotiation mandate for the Copyright Directive in 2018. The research: (ii) supported amendments to articles 5, 11 & 13, which protect the rights of EU citizens over corporate interests. The same research underpins one of the UK's leading copyright guidance websites, which has: (iii) shaped the creative policy and practice of copyright 'users' within the creative sector via engagement with the British Film Institute. 2. Underpinning research Almost every activity on a mobile phone, computer or network involves acts of copying. Copyright law has effects that go far beyond its origins of regulating the behaviour of competitors in the same industry sector (e.g. such as protecting a publisher against a re-publisher). It now affects the infrastructure of society, and the role of creators and users as citizens. CREATe, the UK Copyright and Creative Economy Centre (hosted by the UofG School of Law) was established in 2012 to enable a new evidence-led understanding of copyright law. 2.1. Reconceiving the 'users' of copyright CREATe researchers have studied how to enable the creative sector to develop a much wider range of behavioral options relating to copyright. In 2015, an assessment [O1] was undertaken across six artistic mediums: music, film, performance, visual art, writing and interactive development. It sought to understand creators, entrepreneurs, educators and consumers as 'users' of copyright. The research identified and quantified obstacles to creative re-use that arise from misunderstandings of the boundaries of copyright law [O2] and proposed specific interventions to release the value of the creative re-use of material (e.g. increasing the amount of material available in the public domain through legislation; improving knowledge about the boundaries of copyright law among creators; and improving information flow between creative industries and holders of public domain materials). These recommendations were implemented by UofG researchers in the development of the UK online guidance portal CopyrightUser.org (led by CREATe). 2.2. The EU Copyright Directive When the Copyright in the Digital Single Market Directive was proposed by the European Commission in September 2016, CREATe undertook a series of evidence reviews and empirical studies [O3, O4, O5, O6] relating to the most controversial provisions in the draft legislation. The research found that evidence did not support provisions in Articles 5, 11 and 13, which sought to alter the balance between protecting and rewarding rightholders and facilitating user innovation. Article 5 (which later became Articles 3 and 4), proposed a new narrow exception that was designed to enable copying of materials in the process of text-and-data-mining. However, the exception was restricted to purposes of scientific research (thus excluding cultural heritage institutions, journalists and commercial start-ups). Margoni and Kretschmer's research [O4] showed that text-and-data-mining is misconceived as a copyright relevant activity, as the purpose of mining is extracting information from works, not copying the works. Article 11 (later Article 15), proposed that anyone using snippets of journalistic online content must first get a licence from the publisher, potentially affecting everyday activities such as blogging and hyperlinking. Along with Professor Lionel Bently (University of Cambridge) and others, Kretschmer was commissioned by the European Parliament to review the laws of seven Member States to see how far the proposed new articles would 'add value' [O5]. The desk work was executed primarily by the University of Cambridge, with a subcontract given to Prof. Kretschmer, who drew extensively upon the body of empirical evidence from CREATe research. A key finding was that previous interventions to establish press publishers' rights in Germany and Spain did not produce the intended effects (e.g. enforcing the rights of publishers and generating income from US tech companies). It also found that the proposal favoured incumbent publishing interests over innovation (e.g. the interests of quality journalism, small publishers or news-related start-ups). Article 13 (later Article 17) proposed to change the liability regime so that platforms that host user-generated content (e.g. YouTube) would become responsible for unlawful content found on their sites. A likely consequence of such proposals would be the introduction of large-scale upload filtering software-a burden that would likely discourage start-ups and effectively lock-in YouTube's dominance. Automated takedown would struggle to tell copyright infringement apart from legal uses such as parody; as a result, legitimate content would be removed, thus affecting creative freedoms. Kretschmer and Erickson's research [O6] investigated the factors that motivate takedown requests of user-generated content by copyright owners using an original dataset of 1,839 music video parodies. The research found that takedown requests by copyright holders already results in the removal of lawful content, and that policy concerns frequently raised by rightholders are not associated with statistically significant patterns of action. 3.

Outputs [O2] and [O6] are published in international double-blind peer reviewed law journals. 4. Details of the impact 4.1. Context Copyright policy has suffered from the lack of an accepted evidence base. It is a highly technical field of law that, through digitization, is suddenly implicated in everyday life. The debate around the EU Commission's proposals for copyright reform (2015-2019) was played out amid intense corporate lobbying aimed at MEPs, governments and the general public. The face-off between US tech companies (e.g. Google) versus European collecting societies, record companies and press publishers, led to widespread accusations of deception and unfair lobbying. Amid this confusion, there was a real danger that the interests of EU citizens would be drowned out. 4.2. Informing the EU copyright debate CREATe's interdisciplinary research has provided EU citizens and policymakers with a trusted source of information during the course of this complex debate (as demonstrated by the report on corporate lobbying [E1]). Kretschmer also disseminated research findings and advocated CREATe's evidence-led approach through invited presentations at hearings in the European Parliament and at high-level roundtables for the European Commission (confirmed by collated evidence [E2]). A key recommendation of the research [O1] was to support innovation by increasing the amount of material available for re-use without seeking permission. When the final study [O1] was published in 2015, it fed into a European Parliament review of the 2001 Copyright Directive. The then Rapporteur cited the research in Parliament and endorsed its role in safeguarding public domain works for the benefit of EU society: 'the empirical results generated by the CREATe study helped my colleagues and I advocate for change to European copyright that will improve the regulatory landscape for creators and users.' (confirmed by letter [E3]). When controversial new legislation was introduced by the European Commission in September 2016, Kretschmer drew upon the underpinning research to coordinate an academic response to the Copyright in the Digital Single Market Directive. CREATe's digital portal [E4] became a focal point for this activity, providing a hub for the dissemination of academic statements and the findings of CREATe's most relevant research [O2, O3, O4]. As a result of the initiative of Kretschmer (and others), over 200 academics signed open letters opposing Articles 11 and 13. These interventions also advocated opening Article 5 (which became Articles 3 and 4: exceptions for text-and-data-mining) to all users, including for commercial purposes (confirmed by open letters [E5]). Kretschmer then co-authored an academic statement entitled 'Misinformation and Independent Enquiry' (known as the CREATe Statement [E6]), which received over 40,000 impressions on Twitter. This was a key piece of evidence that persuaded a majority of MEPs to reject the first negotiation mandate for the Directive in the vote on 5 July 2018. This rejection was highly significant, as it represented a surprise result in the face of extensive corporate lobbying (e.g. Google alone held 22 meetings with high-level European Commission staff specifically on copyright). With the Commission's proposals sent back to the drawing board by Parliament, the then Shadow Copyright Rapporteur wrote: 'I cannot stress enough that I think the active academic intervention in this vote has been absolutely decisive for this first success'[E7]. 4.3. Supporting amendments to the EU Copyright Directive As the result of the research and interventions of CREATe (and others), specific changes were made to the Copyright Directive prior to the vote in respect of Article 11, and subsequent to the vote in respect of Articles 5 and 13. For example, the European Parliament commissioned study [O5] was presented to the Committee on Legal Affairs (JURI) on 7 December 2017 [E2]. Its concerns that the reform would give big media players the power to monetize their content online (at a cost to the circulation of news) were reflected in an explicit exemption for 'hyperlinking' introduced by Parliament to the Commission draft (and further amendments that remove 'individual words or short extracts' and 'private or non-commercial uses' from the scope of the new right). For Articles 5 and 13, the European Parliament introduced later amendments that enabled the rejected draft to pass plenary votes (on 11 September 2018 and 26 March 2019 respectively). For Article 5, the scope of the text-and-data-mining exception was extended to embrace cultural heritage institutions (in line with the findings of [O4]). For Article 13, obligations were re-focused on major platforms (e.g. YouTube). In line with the findings of the underpinning research [O6], exemptions were provided for 'microenterprises and small-sized enterprises, educational or scientific repositories' under a new definition of an 'online content-sharing service provider' introduced as Article 2(6). The amended Copyright Directive was approved by the European Parliament on 26 March 2019 and the European Council on 15 April 2019. While the revised provisions remain problematic, a former MEP and Copyright Rapporteur of the Internal Market Committee confirms that, 'Prof. Kretschmer's research underpinned the case for innovation-enabling improvements' (statement [E8]). She (and other MEPs) relied upon academic evidence throughout the highly complex debate (as confirmed by transcript [E9]). Statement [E8] specifically confirms the role of the empirical evidence provided by the underpinning UofG research [O4, O5, O6] within that process: 'The importance of academic input into the copyright debate was essential due to the polarised nature of the debate and the power of those right holders' lobbies who were not supporting creators but profit. Without academic input, there would have been little counter argument particularly as the subject is complex and legalistic.' 4.4. Shaping the creative policy and practice of copyright users Based upon the underpinning research [O1, O2], CREATe's CopyrightUser.org web portal has become one of the UK's most authoritative copyright guidance sites, attracting more than 1,661,003 unique visitors since 2017 [E10]. This resource enables educators and cultural heritage practitioners to access independent copyright guidance based upon up-to-date empirical evidence. Its success has been widely recognized. For example, the European Commission commissioned the Council of Europe's European Audiovisual Observatory to carry out an independent study to identify the most significant media literacy projects carried out since 2010-CopyrightUser.org was in the top 5 for the UK in 2016 [E11]. As a direct result of engagement with CopyrightUser.org, there is evidence of changes to policy and practice within the cultural heritage sector. For instance, based upon the underpinning research [O1], Meletti was seconded to the British Film Institute (BFI) from 2017-2018. The BFI hosts the largest public searchable database dedicated to British films released in the UK. This flagship platform for the BFI's mass digitization project has received over 74 million views to date. As a result of Meletti's secondment, the BFI reappraised its copyright policy, guidance and staff training (as confirmed by statement [E12]). The BFI's Rights Database Manager testifies that, 'links to pages on Copyrightuser.org have been embedded in our internal policy and guidance documents to help provide more information and context on copyright research [] Approximately 35 members of BFI staff have used guidance [] Using Copyrightuser.org in this way helps us particularly where we are unable to give legal advice but can direct people to the resources on the website so they can gather more information about the issues'. [E12] The secondary beneficiaries of the BFI's revised copyright guidance are its members and partner organisations. These changes enable creators (e.g. filmmakers and educators) to use archive material more readily in their creative projects. For instance, in 2017 the BFI supported a pilot project to supply films to students for creative reuse. The project has since grown across the UK and Ireland and now provides 60 Higher Education Institutions with access to 39 titles for creative projects. The BFI's Rights Database Manager confirms that, 'The ongoing impact of [Meletti's] secondment and continued use of Copyrightuser.org [] has brought positive changes to the BFI for both our internal development of clearer and evidence-based copyright policies and how we communicate with partners and the public to deliver our public mission.'

[pdf available] [E12] Statement from the Rights Database Manager, British Film Institute (June 2020) [pdf available] 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 500,000 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. This is documented here: https://www.create.ac.uk/policy-responses/eu-copyright-reform/ 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).

Title CDSM EU Directive resource 
Description The Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market (CDSM) entered into force on 7 June 2019 (20 days after publication in the Official Journal of the European Union). It must now be transposed by Member States into national law by 7 June 2021. The Directive is a complex piece of legislation, 34 pages long. The most contested Article 17 is introduced by 11 recitals (61-71) and covers in 10 dense sections new obligations by "online content-sharing service providers", a new class of services that communicate to the public copyright content uploaded by their users. It is likely that we'll see widely diverging implementations, and decades of references to the Court of Justice of the European Union, which is already suffering from copyright overload. This resource, developed in collaboration with reCreating Europe (an EU H2020 project), offers an independent academic perspective on the implementation of the directive, continuing previous work on the legislative process.

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.

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).

Description CREATe Industry Fellows 
Organisation Digital Catapult
Country United Kingdom 
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.

Results and Impact We are delighted to report that the monograph Art and Modern Copyright: The Contested Image by CREATe's Leverhulme Early Career Fellow Elena Cooper has been shortlisted for the Peter Birks Prizes for Outstanding Legal Scholarship, to be awarded by the Society of Legal Scholars later this year. The book, the first in-depth and longitudinal account of the history of copyright relating to the visual arts, was published by Cambridge University Press in 2018, and was launched shortly thereafter at the beautiful Victorian Picture Gallery, Royal Holloway, University of London.

Focussing on the UK in the late-nineteenth and early twentieth centuries (1850-1911), an important period in the making of modern copyright, the book explores the ways in which the history of copyright relating to the visual arts (painting, engraving, photography) differs from existing accounts of copyright history concerning the protection of books and literary works. Art and Modern Copyright draws on meticulous original archival work, conducted over the course of a decade, significantly expanding a doctoral thesis supervised by Professor Lionel Bently at the University of Cambridge, which was awarded a Yorke Prize by the Faculty of Law, Cambridge in 2011. As well as exploring the connections between copyright history and the scholarship of art historians, the book reflects on how the past can help us think critically about copyright today.

The book has been positively reviewed by law and humanities scholars, as well as Lord Justice Richard Arnold (UK Court of Appeal) who concludes that the "prodigious amount of archival research into artistic and legal sources" results in "a significant contribution not only to the history of copyright but also to the history and sociology of art and the history of the second half of the long 19th century more generally" (A Significant Contribution to Copyright History, JIPLP, 2019, 252-254,253). A short film about some aspects of the book, produced by Exhibition on Screen and presented by Dr Cooper at the Victorian Picture Gallery, Royal Holloway, is in progress, and due to the interruptions of the Covid-19 lock-down, is now expected to be launched in 2021.

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.

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 dominant liability regime for platform intermediaries is about to change. The EU appears to be moving from an obligation to act upon knowledge obtained ("safe harbour") to an obligation to prevent "online harm". A multidisciplinary panel will explore what this means for intellectual property law in the context of the global agenda on platform regulation (fake news, security, child protection, market dominance, data sovereignty).

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."

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 On Thursday, November 12th 2020, Kenny Barr and Janet Burgess from CREATe joined Casi Dylan (Cultural Activities Co-ordinator at the University's College of Arts) to host an online Zoom event, in conjunction with the Being Human Festival and the ESRC Festival of Social Science. Part gig, part debate, the event brought together music and legal scholars, musicians and policy makers to highlight how music is created, where copyright fits in, and the impact that Covid-19 has had on musicians, both professional and amateur. As a sector, the music industry was already characterised by precariousness and uncertainty but the devastating effects of lockdown compelled many musicians to start using online platforms as their only means of making music.

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.
