Deliverable 2.1: Mapping of the relevant European IP legal framework
This deliverable describes the activities carried out during the first six months of the inDICEs project within Work Package 2 (WP2) by the different partners and summarizes the results achieved by this work package.
The document provides a detailed overview of the current and upcoming IP legal framework affecting the activities of the CHIs. It will raise awareness of the legal constraints and opportunities that result from the IP framework applicable at the EU level. Increasing their knowledge of IP laws will help CHIs to develop innovative business models and to overcome bottlenecks in the use and re-use of creative content under their collections.
In addition, this study will also describe other non-IP related rules that may have an impact on digitization and use and re-use of cultural content under the collections of CHIs and on access and promotion of culture and knowledge.
