The Copyright Hub in the UK has launched a consultation pilot which can be found at www.copyrighthub.co.uk.
The creation of a digital copyright exchange (DCE) was recommended in the Hargreaves Review of Intellectual Property. Richard Hooper then carried out a feasibility study looking at ways of making copyright licensing more fit for purpose for the digital age.
The Copyright Hub is envisioned as a web portal connected to a network of organisations from the audio-visual, publishing, music and images sectors of the creative industries, and also a forum for collaboration between the different creative sectors and their organisations. The current pilot is a small step towards this goal.
