Policymakers are informed with anecdotes, often by lobbyists; Issues like: copyright term, scope, anti-piracy measures, economics of DRM, etc.!Thankfully, lots of studies by academics!

Does anyone listen to academics?


Our approach:

Involve society & the public in copyright policy!Text & data minable repository of peer reviewed empirical resultsFuture goals:Visualisation & other open tools

Ambition 1) V

isualise relationality & quality of studies

What insights can we gain from showing relationships between studies in the Wiki?Obtain metadata about article references, source & authors credentials

Compare and rank datasets and analysis methods

Visually represent relationship between studies & importance based on these criteria


Ambition 2) Leverage Wiki open functionality

What tools, plugins, policies & features can attract public contribution & engagement with Wiki?While also maintaining credibility, transparency & avoiding defacement, etc.Could a “virtual town hall meeting” format track discussions about entries & findings?


Ambition 3) Interface with upcoming policy debates

Governments around the world are questioning copyright policy in key areasHow can the Copyright Evidence Wiki keep up to date on new policy areas as they emerge and curate & produce answers to emergent policy questions?Methods to collect, parse & archive emergent policy questions on copyright?Mine corpus of studies and dynamically produce current, up to date dashboard of findings on diverse topics?
