Jailhouse Frocks and Blue Suede Shoes: Intellectual property regimes and the paradox of circulation and control in the information age
This paper is a work in progress and draws upon research conducted upon intellectual property regimes that protect celebrity (Elvis as a case study), music (MP3 and copyright) and also (Counterfeited) luxury fashion brand rights.
It explores the justification of exclusive rights of control, which is one of the orthodox theoretical arguments underpinning IP regimes, and argues that they underplay and undervalue the creative part played by consumers in the life of the IP in question.
