The Hargreaves Report

May 19, 2011

 

There’s so much being said about the Hargreaves Report that I scarcely need to repeat it here, but if you’d like to read the original, here’s the link: http://www.ipo.gov.uk/ipreview.htm

 

And here’s the press release announcement.

 

There’s lots of online comment, most of it positive. But, as with all things, there will be winners and losers. For me, one of the most  interesting things that’s being discussed is digital rights direct payments. Thinking this through, this could have an additional impact on micropayments for journalism if implemented – as well as those artists – including photographers – who currently use third parties (like istock) to sell on their wares if they want payment.

 

This could absolutely change the face of paid journalism and create an egalitarian market where good quality work is sought after and rewarded.  It will be interesting to see where this pans out.

 

Were I Twitter, one of the content distributors but still looking for a revenue model, I might be keeping a very close eye on this potential lifeline.
