New Creativeworks London White Paper: Using Intellectual Property in the Creative Industries
The research on which this White Paper reports was undertaken as part of the Creativeworks London project, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. The aim of the research was to investigate how creators exploit intellectual property outside the traditional structure of formal contracts, to identify their working practices and their normative stance on those uses (which might not match the law’s normative position), and to discuss with them what legal and non-legal mechanisms might be helpful in undertaking these uses more effectively. The role of the internet in opening up new ways to use creative works was a major talking point throughout.
