Contract No: LC-01528857
Short description: In order to help the European creative industries unleash the potential of new technologies and make the most of them, the Commission would like to look into several specific issues related to: (i) the management of copyright data linked to protected content. The contractor should identify and quantify the economic impact of current issues related to metadata management in the copyright industries. The study should investigate the ways in which new technologies can contribute to improving the efficiency and transparency of licensing of content and management of rights, while making more content accessible for end- users; and (ii) the policy questions related to the interaction between AI and the creative industries, in particular concerning: (a) the use of copyright-protected content as input of AI technologies; and (b) the production of cultural outputs by or with the assistance of AI technologies. The study should provide the empirical basis to carry out a solid analysis from both angles, looking in particular at potential impacts on the European creative industries. The upcoming commission will need to reflect whether policy actions should be considered regarding these areas.
