Creative Industry and Digital Sharing

In September, the London School of Economics and Political Science Department of Media and Communications published a report on the impact of digital sharing on the incomes of the creative industry as part of the Media Policy Project.

Contrary to the claims of the industry that their incomes were in decline because the copyright infringements on the web are becoming more and more frequent, the authors of the study discovered that the incomes of publishers, game developers and the movie industry are increasing. What is more, copyright infringements even have a positive effect on the incomes of creators in certain cases.
