  • Titill er á ensku Does ‘one-size-fits-all’ fit anyone? Allocative inefficiency in copyright for creators.
  • Júní 2012
  • Útdráttur er á ensku

    A common view in economic research is that the development of copyright, particularly in the last few decades, has amplified an imbalance existing between access and control that negatively affects output and quality. Copyright is a one-size-fits-all mechanism that serves the interests of a broad spectrum of producers of information and creative works, individuals and large organizations alike. It governs the range of production and dissemination methods within these sectors. There are indications that such one-size-fits-all approach to regulation and control misaligns the varied, and often contrasting, needs of the sectors as well as those of the public. Most research on copyright has focused on the effect of copyright policy on organizations and larger producers. This paper focuses on the rights of artists/primary creators or individual copyright holders and seeks to determine whether the current regime matches the level of incentive and protection against perceived need of individual creators. Recent amendments seem to be superfluous to primary creators interests and thus inefficient, according to economic theory. This may justify a proposition that states that there is a call for an operational and conceptual distinction between industrial (institutional) and individual copyright.
