EUhackathon: Visualizing Copyright Evidence

The theme of the 6th edition of the EUhackathon revolves around visualising copyright evidence to inform the policy debate and support the decision making process.

The goal is to combine data and academic research from various sources to help create a clearer picture of the issues at stake in copyright, as sometimes the full story is difficult to grasp. The UK Centre for Copyright and New Business Models in the Creative Economy (CREATe), which supports this event, has set-up a Copyright Evidence Wiki containing approximately 500 studies, which facilitates data mining and the creation of visualisations. This evidence could be complemented with industry data and reports, in order to achieve a greater transparency and awareness in the area of copyright

The challenge is to:

  • Create visualisations of copyright evidence based on the data sources available at the Copyright Evidence Wiki and other external resources
  • Enhance the Copyright Evidence Wiki to enable others to easily create visualisations of the data available.
