Making cultural content available for everyone via mass digitisation is still a challenge for the European ALM (Archives, libraries and museums) sector. Most European memory institutions intend to digitise their whole collection and develop projects for the attractive presentation of their online available electronic content.
The creative industry expects content that is ready for remix and reuse even for business purposes. Based on the experiences of the meetings of Member States Expert Group on Digitisation and Digital Preservation the lecture will summarize the main factors that challenge the realization of this aim and outline possible solutions.
I will present the business needs (what creative reuse means), the legal barriers (how existing copyright rules make creative reuse difficult), the memory institutions’ perspective and some landmark projects from all over Europe that makes it clear that there is a light at the end of the tunnel!
