In the digital era, accessing content and information has never appeared so easy. Digital platforms – such as news aggregators, search engines, app stores, and social media – increasingly help people to find, navigate, rank, organize, select, share, and access information online. They have the potential to transform – and are already changing – the consumption of media content and the way in which citizens can engage with politics and society.

INNOVATIONS IN DIGITAL MEDIA:
WHY ACCESSING CONTENT HAS NEVER BEEN EASIER

  • 5 MAY 2015

Event Summary

The Future Media Lounge session “Innovations in digital media: why accessing content has never been easier” took place on 5 May 2015 in the European Parliament. The session looked into how innovations by start-ups, working together with media professionals, are bringing content to users across different platforms in new and innovative ways. Presentations during the event looked into how initiatives such as the Rights Data Integration (RDI) project and the Linked Content Coalition help facilitate and expand the use of content via automated licensing solutions, and how copyright plays a crucial role in underpinning the return of investments in innovations.
