Title RICHES Intellectual Property Rights strategy: the move from analogue to digital and new forms of IPR
Creator RICHES Project
Subject Intellectual Property Rights Flyer
Description The last two decades have witnessed significant changes to the ways in which our cultural heritage (CH) is created, used and disseminated. Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) in general and copyright in particular impacts on how cultural heritage is produced and consumed, developed, accessed and preserved in this digital world. New practices such as collaboration and cocreation of CH and changes in how we engage, alter, communicate and participate in CH require appropriate IPR laws for the digital economy. The RICHES project addresses the challenges that digital cultural practices pose to existing copyright law and argues for new perspectives on IPR. RICHES is at the forefront of re-thinking the intersections between cultural heritage, copyright and human (cultural) rights in the digitised era. How should we re-think the IPR framework that supports our cultural heritage system in order to respond to the changing and challenging times?
