Abstract

One aspect of the Digital Transformations theme has been to explore the ways in which arts and humanities offer insights into issues emerging from current changes in culture and society linked to the increasing pervasiveness of digital technology. One such particularly prominent issue in the arts and humanities is that of intellectual property. The new types of artistic work and forms of scholarly output emerging through engagement with digital technology challenge and disrupt our current understanding of intellectual property. Outputs produced by projects funded within the theme provide valuable insights into how new technologies are reshaping and challenging intellectual property. The roundtable will present work undertaken on the intellectual property issues raised by projects under the theme. These issues also intersect strongly with research into the ways in which impact of digital creativity and scholarship can be assessed and measured, and the way in which we construe the value of digital projects will also be discussed in this roundtable.
