Significant business, legal, academic and political debates have arisen as a result of the impact of disruptive innovations affecting the creative industries, particularly with regard to issues of copyright protection, illegal fie sharing and the appropriateness of legislation to safeguard creator’s rights. Whilst some argument remains as to the level of remuneration that artists and copyright holders should be paid for their work, there is general agreement that current laws are not sufficient. A report from LSE Media Project (Cammaerts et al., 2013: makes a case against the current proposed form of legislation in the UK for protecting intellectual property rights in the digital domain, the UK Digital Economy Act (DEA, 2010). We consider an in-depth evaluation of this act legitimate and valuable, both in economic and legal terms. However, the LSE report has several drawbacks in methodology that raises questions as to the validity of parts of the argument made in their call for a review. The objective of this short report is to better position Cammaerts et al. (2013) work in the literature, which in turn will help policy makers in taking informed decisions.
