This doesn't really count as research but we believe there is need for
the public sector to adopt a CC type licensing scheme in order to
improve accessibility to and use of research reports, video and audio
materials, training materials etc. Currently so much material is
published with the default 'all rights reserved" status which creates an
administrative burden both the publishing organisation and those who
wish to use, store or disseminate the material.
We are running an event in Glasgow on 22 June on "Copyright, content
sharing and the Creative Commons". More details at
I'd be happy to report on the outcomes.

(apologies for cross-posting)
I've put in a research request for a study related to the use of CC
by public sector institutions here in the UK. We are looking for
some other research to show that there is a demand on the part of the
education and research community for cultural heritage organisations
(museums, libraries, etc) to have accessible materials.
Any recommendations for this kind of research?
