AHRC grant awarded for project on music publishing

Arts & Humanities Research Council

CIPPM received a grant from AHRC to carry out a two-year research project on “Evolution in music publishing: economic strategies, business models and copyright”. A team of researchers coordinated by Professor Ruth Towse (Co-Director of CIPPM) will analyse the strategies of the music publishing industry over a long period of time as it adapted its business models to new technologies and legislative changes. The analysis is expected to provide new perspectives into the challenges faced by the UK creative industries in relation to digital technologies and the Internet. The research project is a partnership between CIPPM and Birkbeck College, University of London, and will be carried out in close collaboration with CREATe, the Centre for Creativity, Regulation, Enterprise and Technology at the University of Glasgow.
