UK Copyright Center


A new center that will examine the changing nature of copyright and the need for new business models in the digital age launched January 31 at the University of Glasgow, Scotland.

The Center for Creativity, Regulation, Enterprise and Technology (CREATe) brings together researchers in law, business, economics, technology, psychology, and cultural analysis from seven UK universities: the University of Glasgow, the University of Edinburgh, the University of Strathclyde, the University of St Andrews, the University of Nottingham’s digital economy hub (Horizon), the University of East Anglia, and Goldsmiths, University of London. Over the next four years, directed by Professor Martin Kretschmer, they will work on some 40 projects focused on the intersections between culture, the economy, and technology, to offer policymakers analyses for developing new regulatory frameworks.
