Ideas:
“  Scaling Authorship: The individual creator is at the core of copyright law. While co-authorship rules have been designed to address collaborative creative expression, the system still insists on finding distinct authors in whom initial ownership can vest. This article questions whether these co-authorship rules can maintain their viability when applied in the context of large-scale creative collaborations where numerous authors participate without formal legal relationships with each other. The project uses three large-scale "collective creative expressions" as case studies: hackathons, memes, and traditional cultural expression.  ”
