Organizing Creativity under Regulatory Uncertainty: Challenges of Intellectual Property




The research project is part of the interdisciplinary DFG-funded research group on "Organized Creativity" and led jointly with Prof. Dr. Sigrid Quack, Universität Duisburg-Essen.

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.
