Creative Industries in Transition fosters thought, scholarship and debate on the future of creativity in the digital age. The program examines the opportunities and threats that face the creators of intellectual property and explores solutions that help the creative and business communities reach new levels of artistic and commercial achievement. As part of this inquiry, the program examines current and alternative compensation systems for creators and the potential transactional, litigation and opportunity costs associated with these models.
The program is anchored by a series of thought provoking white papers written by leading academics around the world. Discussion and debate is generated by presentations of the papers and live reaction panels made up of international experts in government, public policy, law, and business. The program is extended here on newcopyrightera.org where archives of the programs, the papers and other resources are made available to the public.
Ultimately the program strives to spark a productive dialog that will help to generate real time, real world solutions for creators, public policy officials and the business community alike.
