Abstract

Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) face numerous challenges related to managing copyright. These challenges are due to characteristics such as size (SMEs range from 1 to 250 employees), availability of resources (including those other than human resources) and market position.1 But SMEs are important to the creative economy in the UK and other countries, making up the bulk of firms in the overall creative sector. How do SMEs relate to each other and larger firms in the creative economy, and what issues do they face with regards to intellectual property (IP) rights? This section examines some of the main issues and provides guidance on strategies that firms have employed to effectively manage copyright challenges.
