Creative Britain – a New Economy?

The view from DCMS and BERR in “Creative Britain – New Talents for the New Economy” (published 22 Feb) includes quite a few mentions of IP and “new business models” but doesn’t really deliver much that breaks the mold, certainly nothing that goes anywhere near the open source or open content worlds. This is an unfair comparison, given the diversity of creative industries and some may quibble about the open source comparison, but the seemingly complete omission of new business models is a bit of a shame.

(IP = Intellectual Property, BERR = Business Enterprise and Regulatory Reform, DCMS = Department of Culture Media and Sport)
