Description

Interdisciplinary Elecitve Course


The practitioners of the creative industries have to face legal issues from time to time. For example, practitioners from the music industry need to face the legal issue of internet music service; the film industry may also need to know the legal rights of the impact of OTT service; and the gaming industry may also need to face the legal issue of money laundering. The rapid development of the creative industries has some common issues such as copyrights and patent but there are some issues which are unique to creative industries such as cyber-crimes and fraud. This course would trace the origins and development of such issues and critically examine the ways and means to tackle these issues.
