The Economics of Open Content

Hewlett Foundation

​With the support of the Hewlett Foundation in 2005 and 2006, Intelligent Television brought together business and industry leaders and culture and education stewards to explore new business collaborations between libraries, museums, archives, universities and commercial media and technology enterprises.

The proceedings of these meetings on the economics of open content (available in audio and video online at: http://forum.wgbh.org/wgbh/forum.php?lecture_id=197) highlight emerging economic relationships in media and describe new models for commercial-noncommercial media collaborations involving cultural heritage and educational materials.  The Hewlett Foundation’s support for this project was administered by the New America Foundation, a leading independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit public policy institute based in Washington, DC.
