Published on

The difficulties I face, as a legal academic, to deal with large amounts of empirical data.
Trying to map and assess the breadth, depth and quality of legal services offering access to copyrighted content, such a music, films, books, video games.
Collecting, presenting and making sense of large amount of data across several jurisdictions.

Mapping the legal offer for digital content: Desperately Seeking a Database Geek

  1. 1. Mapping the legal offer for digital content: Desperately Seeking a Database Geek Nicolas Jondet, University of Strathclyde / CREATe Theme 3: Public/Intermediary Enabled Copyright Enforcement Lead investigator: Professor Lilian Edwards Presentation prepared for the CREATe Researchers Conference and Empirical Capacity Building Event (Edinburgh) – 13 & 14 June 2013 Nicolas Jondet - 13 June 2013
  2. 2. 1. The project Nicolas Jondet - 13 June 2013
  3. 3. 1. The project • Mapping the legal offer for digital content - How to access copyrighted digital content legally in the EU - The idea: is the level of piracy function of the quality of the legal offer in any given jurisdiction? - Comparative analysis between countries Nicolas Jondet - 13 June 2013
  4. 4. 1. The project • Challenges in terms of scope - Subject matter is very large (covers music, movies, books, video games…) - Many delivery systems and payment options (download, streaming, free, subscription on desktops, tablets, phones, consoles…) - Starting point: the UK and France and then the whole of the 27 EU members Nicolas Jondet - 13 June 2013
  5. 5. 1. The project • Challenges in terms of methodology - Finding the information - Collecting the information - Presenting the information - Analysing the information Nicolas Jondet - 13 June 2013
  6. 6. 1. The project • An example of my work or of the challenges - Access to music - 60+ services in the UK alone - Many of main services are available in many jurisdictions Nicolas Jondet - 13 June 2013

  21. 21. The database systems I am aware (and wary) of Nicolas Jondet - 13 June 2013
  22. 22. 3. How I started Nicolas Jondet - 13 June 2013
  23. 23. a) Text in Word Nicolas Jondet - 13 June 2013
  24. 24. Nicolas Jondet - 13 June 2013
  25. 25. b) Table in Word Nicolas Jondet - 13 June 2013
  26. 26. Nicolas Jondet - 13 June 2013
  27. 27. b) Table in Word • Advantages - Familiar / Easy to set up - Footnotes; Footnotes with Zotero - Comments appear where they should Nicolas Jondet - 13 June 2013
  28. 28. b) Table in Word • Drawbacks - Lack of flexibility (hard to add new columns/rows/ cell) - Not adapted for big data sets (what happens when you go to the next page; scrolling down forever) - Many footnotes eat up the page - Not many functionalities (not much you can do with the data when it is in) Nicolas Jondet - 13 June 2013
  29. 29. 4. What I am doing now: Excel Nicolas Jondet - 13 June 2013
  30. 30. Nicolas Jondet - 13 June 2013
  31. 31. 4.What I am doing now: Excel • Drawbacks - How to do footnotes? - How to make it look as nice as on Word? Nicolas Jondet - 13 June 2013
  32. 32. 4.What I am doing now: Excel • Advantages - Flexibility - Autofill - Handle much more data - Much more functionalities I do not know about (relational data, presentation-wise….) Nicolas Jondet - 13 June 2013
  33. 33. 5. Should I go to the next level and create a relational database? Nicolas Jondet - 13 June 2013
  34. 34. 5. Relational database? • Potential Benefits - Do a searchable database with filters (by jurisdiction, type of content, payment options, compatible device and formats…) - Visualisation / Infographics (PDF, HTML….) offline and online - Understanding Big data? - Examples of what I want to do Nicolas Jondet - 13 June 2013

  38. 38. Nicolas Jondet - 13 June 2013
  39. 39. 5. Relational database? • Is it worth the effort? - Time / Benefit - Stick to Excel / switch to Access – SQL - Sharing data between Excel and Access - How to reference sources in a publishing compatible way, ie as good or better than footnotes, in Excel or Access?
