Rip, Mix & Burn: Is Creative Commons a Viable Business Model? – London, 6 November 2008

Rip, Mix & Burn: Is Creative Commons a Viable Business Model?

The Creative Commons License Model generates unprecedented creative and public value to audiences by encouraging them to ‘Rip, Mix and Burn’. However, what evidence is there to demonstrate successful emerging business models based on these forms of access? When should archive owners take the plunge and spend money to digitise their IP?

James Boyle, Professor of Law and co-founder of the Center for the Study of the Public Domain at Duke Law School, North Carolina, USA will make a keynote address on the future of the ‘Creative Commons’ followed by a lively panel discussion on its viability for creating successful businesses. Panellists include John Woodward, CEO, UK Film Council; Thomas Hoegh, Managing Partner, Arts Alliance Media and Tim Bradshaw, Digital Media Correspondent, Financial Times. Jonathan Kestenbaum, NESTA’s CEO will moderate. Please join us for what we are sure will be a stimulating and thought-provoking discussion.
