Intellectual Property for Creative Industries in Developing Countries
In the digital era more than ever, creators need adequate intellectual property (IP) tools and resources to bring to market their products and services. This need is indeed crucial for creators from developing countries, in order to allow them to retain control over their work, secure fair revenues, and ultimately incentivize further creativity.
Efficient IP management of creative industries also benefits developing countries’ economic growth. Music, film, software, design, and publishing industries foster local innovation and generate job opportunities, while strong IP frameworks increase investor certainty and lead to increased funding for local creative projects and industries.
