Future Digital Economy: Digital Content Creation, Distribution and Access--Conference Conclusions. OECD Digital Economy Papers No. 118
OECD Publishing (NJ1)
This conference, jointly organised by OECD's Department for Science, Technology and Industry and the Italian Ministry for Innovation and Technology, was attended by approximately 350 representatives from industry, academia and government. Rapporteurs presented summaries in terms of issues and areas where there was agreement and/or convergence among presentations and participant interventions and areas where there was disagreement and/or divergence. Points of agreement include: (1) Today's participatory culture is of users rather than consumers with increased generational differences in usage; (2) Goal of business-model neutrality; and (3) There is a high speed of change in the sector, led by the availability of broad-band enabling digital content provision with a significant decline of (access) prices. Points of divergence include: (1) Balance of intellectual property rights (IPR); (2) Role of governments versus markets; (3) Digital Rights Management (DRM); and (4) Policy challenges and need for international harmonisation. (Contains 2 footnotes, 8 figures, 1 box and 1 table.)
