Remix: Lawrence Lessig on IP in the Digital Economy

"The prolific and controversial web culture of piracy, particularly file sharing, has taken the world by storm, and for more than a decade, we’ve been waging a war in the name of the 20th Century’s model of copyright law.

The content industry has convinced the world that extremism in copyright regulation is good for business and economic growth. But that's false. Join Stanford Law Professor Lawrence Lessig as he discusses the potential creative accomplishments that our society could achieve, if only we viewed copyright and intellectual property (IP) laws differently."

Lessig, L. (2008). "Remix: Making Art and Commerce Thrive in the Hybrid Economy", Bloomsbury Academic.

A New Video to Present Lithuania's Business Environment

"A new video has been released to showcase Lithuania to foreign investors. The video was developed in collaboration with current investors and it presents the country as it is perceived through their eyes. It focuses on forward thinking people, who are full of ideas, drive and energy. People who are self–starters."

A Manifesto for the UK Creative Economy

"The UK's creative economy is one of its great national strengths, historically deeply rooted and accounting for around one–tenth of the whole economy. It provides jobs for 2.5 million people – more than in financial services, advanced manufacturing or construction – and in recent years, this creative workforce has grown four times faster than the workforce as a whole.

But behind this success lies much disruption and business uncertainty, associated with digital technologies. Previously profitable business models have been swept away, young companies from outside the UK have dominated new internet markets, and some UK creative businesses have struggled to compete.

UK policymakers too have failed to keep pace with developments in North America and parts of Asia. But it is not too late to refresh tired policies. This manifesto sets out our 10–point plan to bolster one of the UK's fastest growing sectors."

(Hasan Bakhshi, Ian Hargreaves and Juan Mateos–Garcia, April 2013, NESTA)

Expat Experiences of New Zealand Employers Hiring

"During November 2012 there were over 120 comments posted largely by expat and returned Kiwis in a KEA group LinkedIn discussion on 'How do employers view those coming home after an extended period of time?' The comments centred around a theme that NZ employers appear fearful of hiring expats and don't recognise the skills and global connectivity opportunities which they can bring.

Reading through the comments one can identify many factors which matched those contained in material released on my website two years ago looking at the cultural impediments to growth of the New Zealand economy. So taking on board the strongly expressed hopes by many contributors that something would be done to highlight this issue of expat under–utilisation I have prepared this paper which will be referenced in the BNZ Weekly Overview ... The material will also form a backgrounder to comments to be included in my talks around New Zealand during 2013."

(Tony Alexander, BNZ Chief Economist, 30 November 2012)
