UTEN Copyright Workshop for the Creative Industries
Friday, 21 October 2011
In conjunction with the futureplaces Digital Media Festival of the UT Austin|Portugal CoLab
To understand the new challenges of managing intellectual property in the creative economy. Traditional business models in design-, arts- and content-based industries face an array of changing conditions: technological changes, of course, but also legal and cultural ones. Consumer expectations about the pricing of digital content; artists’ desire to reuse and remix cultural capital; participatory media, whether in the form of “free culture” (Creative Commons, open source) or signed away under a Terms of Service Agreement; the legal strategies of large IP holders; and local differences in an increasingly global market – all are in a state of rapid change. The UTEN Copyright Workshop for the Creative Industries intends to provide some basic tools and points of reference for creative professionals, entrepreneurs, researchers and TTOs facing these challenges.
Common Ground: Intellectual Property Basics Every Creative Should Know
Global Differences: IP Trends in Europe/Latin America/North America
New Models for IP: Creative Commons, Open Source, Free Culture

The workshop will be followed on Saturday, 22 October by related events at the futureplaces Digital Media Festival.
