Monetising IP in the 21st century: some reading
Two bits of interesting reading: the first, "How are we gonna pay these musicians?", can be found on Music Think Tank (here); it's by musician, writer and business model enthusiast Matthew Hiscock. The second, "A Copyright Battle for the 2010s", was first published by Information Today and is now available online here on AllBusiness.com. This piece, by Michael Baumann, discusses the current challenges faced by publishers in monetising and controlling their intellectual property, presenting some technology solutions.
I've not had time to write anything thoughtful on either of these, and invite any reader with a little time on his or her hands to offer some comments.
