Digitalisation of media is an approaching reality for Latin American countries. This technologic paradigm shift promises more democratic and diverse access to radio and TV frequencies. However, there is also a great risk of reproducing the same inequalities and power relations that exist in the “analogical” world and thus of media being in the hands of a few. This paper by Gustavo Gómez Germano illustrates the political and regulatory implications of an apparently technical and thus neutral phenomenon. It also suggests advocacy priorities to create a more informed and active civil society

Museums, and the broader cultural heritage community, now have access to a new guide, commissioned by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), to help them use the intellectual property (IP) system to improve the management of their collections in the digital environment.

The “WIPO Guide on Managing Intellectual Property for Museums” by Ms. Rina Elster Pantalony - a Canadian expert on these issues - recognizes the important role that IP plays in providing access to collections, and in preserving and managing the valuable works they contain. Copyright and trademark law in particular are of growing importance to museums in fulfilling their mandates and meeting users’ needs. Effective management of IP rights will enable museums to harness the Internet as an educational and communications tool.

In the digital age, the cultural heritage community is increasingly faced with the responsibility of managing its own IP, as well as managing uses by third parties and users throughout the world, often on diminishing budgets. Effective use of the IP system allows museums to meet international standards of best practice, and can offer significant opportunities to leverage their goodwill, authenticity, uniqueness and scholarly expertise to generate a return on investment.

The first part of the Guide describes IP issues of relevance to museums such as rights in scholarly content, technologies developed in-house, and branding tools that provide recognition and awareness of the museum in a commercial context. It also sets out recommended best practices in managing IP to enable a museum to identify its IP, understand its rights in using its collections, and strengthen its ability to deal with critical IP issues as they arise. The second part of the Guide reviews existing business models that could provide museums with appropriate opportunities to create sustainable funding, and deliver on their stated objectives.

The WIPO Guide is now available on-line at: http://www.wipo.int/copyright/en/museums_ip/ .

The goal of this event is to collectively identify technology requirements for effective online communities to better support those working in social change and innovation. The intention is to share what we learn quickly and broadly.

Online communities are changing the work we do and how we do it. They are creating new avenues for learning and innovating. They drive new models of leadership.

Today's technologies while plentiful are not inventoried, and overall not adequate for the needs of the social sector. The goal of this JAM is to help the sector use online community tools more effectively and to help technologists to build more appropriate tools. Through this discussion we hope to create a shared vision of our collective future for online communities for social change and innovation.

Participants will include leaders of nonprofit, NGO, public sector and grantmaking organizations, researchers and academics, technologists, and consultants from around the world. All use or plan to use online communities for social innovation.

Learning resources are often considered key intellectual property in a competitive higher education world. However, more and more institutions and individuals are sharing their digital learning resources over the Internet, openly and for free, as Open Educational Resources (OER). This study, building on previous OECD work on e-learning, asks why this is happening, who is involved and what the most important implications of this development are.

The report offers a comprehensive overview of the rapidly changing phenomenon of Open Educational Resources and the challenges it poses for higher education. It examines reasons for individuals and institutions to share resources for free, and looks at copyright issues, sustainability and business models as well as policy implications. It will be of particular interest to those involved in e-learning or strategic decision making within higher education, to researchers and to students of new technologies.
