Abstract or Description

35126.The hard sell: economics and intellectual property policy in the creative and cultural industriesNicola Searle1Economists have not enjoyed smooth sailing in the murky waters of intellectual property (IP) in the creative and cultural industries (CCI). As economics wades into relatively uncharted territory, and into oft-hostile seas, this chapter takes a look at how far econom-ics has come in IP policy in CCI, namely copyright, and where it might be headed. It examines economic analysis of IP as a social science, and its relationship with government and industry, with a focus on North America and the UK
