A Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship is available at the Department of Media and Communication at the University of Oslo, Norway to work as part of the project Music on Demand: Economy and Copyright in a Digitised Cultural Sector (MUSEC) with CREATe Fellow Ruth Towse, Professor of Economics of Creative Industries and Co-Director of the Centre for Intellectual Property Policy and Management at Bournemouth University. The project is funded by the Norwegian Research Council’s KULMEDIA programme.
The overall aim of the project is to provide new insight into how music is distributed and paid for in the digital era. The project entails examinations of the economic interactions among different parties in the music sector and the ways in which copyright law protects those involved. The research project will offer novel contributions of knowledge to academic research on cultural production, to those working in the music sector, as well as to the public policymakers responsible for it.
