Abstract or Description

This research examines the business model response to the change from analogue to digital in the creative industries. Looking at both traditional and emerging business models, the project focuses on three sectors: television, computer games and music. A series of six case studies, two from each sector, provide illustrative cases of the business model response to challenges to enforcement of copyright and the advent of digital technologies. This paper reports on the findings of qualitative research into business models comprising six case studies from 25 semi-structured interviews, participant observation and literature sources. The research incorporates a literature review to establish the business model methodology and analyse the current state of research. The research findings show that the creative industries are in a state of business model experimentation and that the roles of intermediaries are changing. Furthermore, the evidence suggests that the Intellectual Property (IP) framework may be secondary to other influences on business models
