Transmedia and Intellectual property

Transmedia and Intellectual property | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it

James Kay: "[...] I have specified the different elements which all together make up “transmedia”: TV, music, publishing, film, consumer products, gaming, gambling, live shows, online content, telephony, home entertainment, format sales, tape sales etc. Any of these elements or any expression of an idea in a transmedia campaign creates intellectual property rights. These rights are the energy used to make money."
