Creative Industries


03 July 2018

The Intellectual Property and Innovation Law Program (IPIL), the Digital Media Research Centre (DMRC) and the QUT Faculty of Law are delighted to invite you to attend a Symposium exploring 'The Economics of Creativity'.

Many of Australia’s artists and creators struggle to make money from their work. Content intermediaries claim that Australian creators are losing out from copyright infringement and a weak copyright system. At the same time, Australian consumers complain that it is difficult to gain access to content that is timely, lawful and affordable. This event brings together experts from law, creative industries and economics to explore ‘The Economics of Creativity’. In the digital age, how is creative work financed and how can it be profitable? How are global media markets managed, and how can our legal system help or hinder cultural production?



Professor Ruth Towse: Professor in Economics of Creative Industries at Bournemouth University (UK)

Dr Kevin Sanson: Senior Lecturer in the School of Communication at QUT

Professor David Throsby AO: Professor of Economics at Macquarie University
