 organized creativity logo

The research project is part of an interdisciplinary DFG research group on "Organized Creativity" under the joint leadership of Prof. Dr. Sigrid Quack, University of Duisburg-Essen and Prof. Dr. Leonhard Dobusch, University of Innsbruck. Katharina Zangerle is a research associate of the project.

Short description

Regulatory uncertainty related to intellectual property (IP) rights has become ubiquitous in creative and innovative processes. IP rights, which originally sought to promote creativity by granting copyrights and patents to creators, and thereby allowing them to form reliable expectations about future returns, are increasingly portrayed as a source of uncertainty. In this study, we examine how actors cope in practice with IP-related uncertainty throughout the creative process, thereby providing an empirical and conceptual micro-foundation of these countervailing forces.
