Photographers for a Digital Economy is a new group of photographers which advocates growth-based market-driven solutions to digital copyright problems.

  • We believe that market-based licensing solutions to the problem of ‘orphaned’ works and the difficulty of licensing works are preferable to the wholesale erosion of the public’s human rights, moral rights, property rights and economic rights, and should be implemented and properly trialled before these rights are restricted, undermined, and damaged.

  • We strongly recommend the establishment of a Copyright Hub to be a platform for market-based solutions to the problems of digital copyright that we and others have described.

  • We strongly recommend that this Hub be established as soon as possible and given time to prove its effectiveness and worth before resort is made to expanded exceptions to copyright.
