Digital Licensing Framework contest announced
The Digital Licensing Framework (DLF) contest challenges you to develop innovative systems and services that help the exchange of licensing information between copyright holders and users in music, publishing or museums and galleries.
Entrants will be given the opportunity to work with leading rights holders such as Bridgeman Art Library, EMI, Pearson, PRS for Music and Tate in a trial with IC tomorrow’s digital platform.
Applicants are asked to submit their pitches online by noon Thursday, 22nd March 2012 and should address one of the following challenges:
- Specific sector: Three awards of up to £25k for prototypes that fundamentally understand the licensing landscape in their chosen sector (music, publishing or museums & galleries) and that enable rights users to formulate and transmit licence enquires to rights holders and view licensing information in a meaningful and educational way.
- Aggregator: One award of up to £30k prototype application or service (that works like a travel aggregation site for hotels /flights) for licensing information across multiple sectors or media types including music, publishing, images and others.
- Intermediary: Two awards of up to £37k for prototype services (likely to be from existing metadata or content specialists) providing an alternative or enriched source of licensing information from multiple rights holders.
There will be a contest briefing event on the morning of Monday 27 th February at the IC tomorrow office in Old Street, London. To book click here.
