Beeb rights swapper swaps shop to swap-shop for red-tops

James Lancaster, the former head of rights negotiations at the BBC, has been picked for the new UK digital copyright exchange project.

The exchange is intended to allow easier licensing and use of copyrighted digital material. Lancaster will head the new Copyright Licensing Steering Group (CLSG), and his work will involve agreeing standards for databases and content metadata, the building blocks of a rights exchange.

Former Ofcom bigwig Richard Hooper confirmed last week that the UK's creative industries had agreed to pick up the tab for the project.

Ros Lynch - who worked with Hooper as a senior civil servant at the government's Department for Business, Innovation and Skills - will lead the industry-funded office to deliver the exchange system.

There's no compulsion to put your content into the hub - that would be illegal - and El Reg reckons it's unlikely big ticket items such as the rights to broadcast Premier League Football will be placed in the copyright swap-shops. But the scheme has won strong support from the newspaper industry and photographers' groups. ®
