Creative Practice and Relational Authorship

Creative Practice and Relational Authorship

(p.61) 3 Creative Practice and Relational Authorship
Authors, Users, and Pirates

This chapter discusses copyright’s inability to accurately identify authorship, use and infringement and explores how different creative industries come to their own understanding about how these practices are governed and managed. Through a study of sampling, music licensing and the production of contemporary art, I detail these governance and management practices and discuss what happens when copyright struggles with relational interactions. I end the chapter by suggesting that understanding authorship as a brand could potentially help to manage these tensions, while also suggesting that policy narratives around copyright law and its relationship with creative industries needs to change in recognition of these difficulties.
