Intellectual Property, Business Models, Access to Finance and Content Regulation

The PEC formulates policies and guidance to accelerate and shape growth in the UK’s creative industries through data collection and research in five overlapping areas, each led by a UK centre of expertise.

In our work on Intellectual Property, Business Models, Access to Finance and Content Regulation, led by CREATe at Glasgow University, we are developing digital and open data tools that consolidate the evidence on the effects of IP rights on creative production and consumption, changes in business models, and the emerging data economy. We are undertaking new research on the challenges for the production, distribution and international exploitation of UK audiovisual content in the context of evolving technologies, globalisation and Brexit. We are also researching the barriers to finance in different creative industries and how policies should address these.
