Could it be true that laws designed more than three centuries ago with
the express purpose of creating economic incentives for innovation by protecting creators’ rights are
today obstructing innovation and economic growth?
The short answer is: yes. We have found that the UK’s intellectual property framework, especially with
regard to copyright, is falling behind what is needed. Copyright, once the exclusive concern of authors
and their publishers, is today preventing medical researchers studying data and text in pursuit of new
treatments. Copying has become basic to numerous industrial processes, as well as to a burgeoning
service economy based upon the internet. The UK cannot afford to let a legal framework designed
around artists impede vigorous participation in these emerging business sectors.

Unrhyw meddyliau am ein cyd-destun?
A new ESRC Research Seminar Series on Digital Policy: Connectivity, Creativity and Rights will be launched at University of Wales, Newport, on April 1 2011. This event ‘Digital Wales: Inclusive Creativity and Economy’ is hosted by the School of Art, Media and Design.
The day features speakers including David Warrender (Director Digital Wales, Welsh Assembly Government), Ian Hargreaves (Cardiff University), William Dutton (Oxford Internet Institute), Lorna Hughes (National Library of Wales), Rhodri Williams (Ofcom), Hamish Fyfe (University of Glamorgan), Panayiota Tatsou (Swansea University), Sangeet Bhullar (Wise Kids), Iain Tweedale (BBC) and the Artist Keynote will be John Goto (University of Derby).
The series led by Gillian Youngs (University of Wales, Newport), Tracy Simmons (University of Leicester), William Dutton (Oxford Internet Institute), Katharine Sarikakis (University of Vienna) will run over two years.
Digital policy is currently high on political, communications and commercial agendas. Controversial areas such as copyright infringement, the future and functions of public service content, and the role of Ofcom are core issues. In the longer term the potential for economic transformations and growth through the digital economy, including the development of new skills, technological and industrial innovation and creativity, are at stake.
This seminar series aims to bring together a distinctive mix of academic researchers at all levels, including research students, with policymakers and practitioners to focus on three key areas: connectivity, creativity and rights.
The series aims to explore questions such as: What kind of digital future is envisaged in Britain? Who continues to be left out or at risk in this digital future? What can be done to overcome major technical, knowledge and skills barriers to this? What new kinds of creativity and innovation are being unleashed by digital change and how can these be expanded? How is the public service ethos being tested and enhanced in the digital environment? The series will consider connectivity from social and skills-based as well as infrastructural and technical perspectives.
We are currently filling the last few places for the April 1 seminar. If anyone is interested in presenting their research or participating in the series or co-hosting an event as part of it please contact Gillian Youngs firstname.lastname@example.org
