Of Authorship and Originality: Reclaiming Copyright in Support of Creative Collaborator in the Digital Environment


Project Summary

This project focused on the ways that humanities disciplines can inform concepts in copyright law, and for collective creative practices in the digital environment for producers of artworks in different media and genres.

To do this, OOR gathered insights from literary theory, music studies, film/visual studies and other humanities’ disciplines. The project focused on the two key and inextricably linked concepts in copyright law: the author and the work.

OOR was a multidisciplinary collaboration between the Institute for Information Law (University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands), the Department of Information Science and Media Studies (University of Bergen, Norway) and the Centre for Intellectual Property and Information Law (University of Cambridge, United Kingdom).

OOR was divided into three individual projects, two dealing with authorship and one with the work:

  • Authorship in Collective Arts
  • Multiplicity of Authors
  • Work as Creative Expression
