  • User generated content - users, community of users and firms: toward new
           sources of co-innovation?
    • First page: 4
      Abstract: info, Volume 18, Issue 6, September 2016.
      Purpose The paper deals with the role of users in the creation (or curation) and distribution of digital contents. User Generated contents refers to a variety of media such as Wikis, question-answer databases, digital video, blogging, podcasting, forums, review-sites, social networking, social media and mobile phone photograph. It attempts assessing their potential role as co-innovators. The paper follows the progressive creation of a new space for users, tracking its specific forms in each subsector of the media and content industries.Each subsector reveals a disruption in the production and circulation of new content. . Design/methodology/approach The paper is based on desk research, a review of literature, review of the technical journals, and analysis of annual reports. The paper is part of an on-going research project on media and content industries. Findings The paper argued that since 2007 (release of iPhone, of Kindle) the landscape went through a dramatic change, scaling up.It illustrates how the entire value chain of content (production/ distribution/ consumption) has opened up. The amount of UGC produced triggered a qualitative jump, ushering in new modes of interaction between the customers and creators, without necessarily turning the consumer into a full-fledge producer. The UGC model adds another source of production, thereby increasing diversity, ushering in new ways for talent scouting. It reveals various forms of co-creation and the role of a community model while also showing its limits. Research limitations/implications This paper concentrates on digital media and does not deal with any other aspect such as knowledge sharing (Wikis). The paper does not cover the reactions of traditional industry players to UGC (some elements are given for newspaper), neither possible policy and regulatory responses The paper relies mostly in reports from news agencies, consultancies or annual reports from companies so as to delineate the main trends. Practical implications It shows that the role of customers did change within this context.The new channels offer novel ways to produce, curate, and disseminate contents. It offers a range of examples from different industries. Originality/value Some reports were devoted to UGC in 2007 (OECD) and 2008 (Idate-IVIR-TNO) but in spite of the majors changes that took place over the last decade, the research has been scarce, or has concentrated on a specific segment of the media industry. The paper is trying to offer a comprehensive overview of the various segments. Each sub-segment of the media industry illustrates a specific dimension.

  • Shrinking core? Exploring the differential agenda setting power of
           traditional and personalized news media
    • First page: 26
      Abstract: info, Volume 18, Issue 6, September 2016.
      Purpose A shared issue agenda provides democracies with a set of topics that structure the public debate. The advent of personalized news media that use smart algorithms to tailor the news offer to the user challenges the established way of setting the agenda of such a common core of issues. Design/methodology/approach This paper tests the effects of personalized news use on perceived importance of these issues in the common core. In particular we study whether personalized news use leads to a concentration at the top of the issue agenda or to a more diverse issue agenda with a long tail of topics. Findings Based on a cross-sectional survey of a representative population sample (N=1556), we find that personalized news use does not lead to a small common core in which few topics are discussed extensively, yet there is a relationship between personalized news use and a preference for less discussed topics. This is a result of a specific user profile of personalized news users: younger, more educated news users are more interested in topics at the fringes of the common core and also make more use of personalized news offers Research limitations/implications The results are discussed in the light of media diversity and recent advances in public sphere research. Originality/value This paper contributes to the ongoing debate about algorithmic news dissemination. While currently much attention is reserved for the role of platforms as information gatekeepers in relationship to the news media, maybe their ability to enable or hinder the audience in discovering and distributing news content is part of what really characterizes their influence on the market place of ideas.

It discusses a. the social relevance of archives, b. European cultural policies targeting operationalisation of these archives, and c. underpinnings and sought implementation of copyright policies. Design/methodology/approach Drawing upon three European cultural policy approaches, namely democratisation of culture, cultural democracy and governmentalisation of culture, the discussion aims to a. situate current legislative attempts within digital content governance and b. examine policy as to its proclaimed aims of broadening access. We deployed macro-level legal analyses of key legislative acts of the EU with direct relevance to the availability of and accessibility to digital historical content by European citizens. We juxtapose relevant cultural policy interventions with the corresponding legal rules and norms in copyright legislation. We evaluate the ways in which normative arguments are reflected in these acts and propose reflections on documented and possible impact. Findings We argue that a. the European Union’s (EU) legal direction is characterised by uncertainty of conviction and internal tensions regarding the place of common cultural heritage in EU policy b. present a restrictive acknowledgement of what culture and heritage policy entail and c. by extension, how cultural matters should be governed. Cultural heritage AV archives are examples of digital content whose governance was almost “automatically” linked to copyright. Originality/value The paper links copyright and cultural policy and demonstrates that although the EU cultural policy is based on access, availability and usability, copyright is unnecessarily restraining them with the improper design and implementation of exceptions and limitations. This reflects EU’s focus on the Single Market, which in this case is pursued at the expense of building of a european identity with shared memories.

  • Another breach in the wall: copyright territoriality in Europe and its
           progressive erosion on the grounds of competition law
    • First page: 55
      Abstract: info, Volume 18, Issue 6, September 2016.
      Purpose This paper shows how the European Commission is seeking to solve the problems of market fragmentation and inaccessibility of copyright content in the Digital Single Market. The analysis draws on a still unresolved conflict between the enforcement of national copyright titles and the EU policy objective to ensure pan-European access to copyright works. Design/methodology/approach Firstly, the paper focuses on the causal relationship between national copyright systems and the existing territorial partitions in the online content markets. Secondly, the paper reviews the piecemeal approach followed by the Commission in its recent legislative initiative aimed at ensuring the cross-border ‘portability’ of online content services. Thirdly, the paper points out how a much more radical approach the Commission has undertaken in an ongoing antitrust case against the territorial partitions created by major film producers and the biggest EU broadcasters might revisit the principle of copyright’s territoriality. Findings In particular, the paper explains why the application of Article 101 TFEU with regard to the licensing agreements creating areas of absolute territorial exclusivity might have potentially disruptive effects on the existing models of online distribution. While pointing out that this outcome will largely depend on how the ongoing antitrust case will be settled, the paper concludes that the liberalization of so-called ‘passive sales’ might force content owners and broadcasters (or content suppliers) to re-structure markets for online content and to replace territoriality with other criteria that might help them differentiate their offerings and packages. Originality/value The modernization of copyright rules that the Juncker Commission has advocated since the start of its mandate aims to ensure that consumers can access services, music, movies and sporting events on their electronic devices wherever they are in Europe and regardless of borders. In May 2015, this pledge was transposed in the first pillar of the Commission Communication “A Digital Single Market Strategy for Europe”. In particular, the Commission announced its intention to propose, before the end of 2015, legislation to reduce differences and friction between national copyright regimes and prevent ‘unjustified’ geo-blocking. In parallel, DG Competition of the European Commission in its capacity as antitrust authority is conducting a formal antitrust investigation aimed to examine whether territorial licensing agreements concluded by several US film studios with the largest European pay-tv broadcasters could be regarded as incompatible with Article 101 TFEU. For the first time, a paper aims to compare the expected outcome of the ongoing reform of the EU copyright framework vis-à-vis the potential outcome of the antitrust investigation led by DG Competition and identify the pros and cons of the two approaches followed by the Commission.

  • European mobile markets and the doctrine of '4 networks good, 3 networks
    • First page: 1
      Abstract: info, Volume 18, Issue 5, August 2016.
      Purpose In the light of the recent European Commission decisions that clearly favour the maintenance of a 4-network structure in European mobile markets, our purpose is to provide an empirical examination of the case for and against such a structure. Design/methodology/approach A table of concentration ratios in 35 sample European markets is constructed and is followed by a detailed analysis of all relevant merger/takeover cases since 2012. These are then used to provide a general analysis of the desirability of further consolidation in the European mobile sector. Findings Although the relevant investigatory bodies claim to have made out a watertight case for the maintenance of existing structures, the paper explains why these claims should be met with some scepticism, especially in the light of the development of 'quad-play' in all markets. Research limitations/implications When a decision is made on a market structure it is pointless to pursue the 'but what if?' alternatives any further. However, it should be possible in a few years' time to assess whether the Commission's predictions have come to pass. Originality/value As the UK decision has only just been delivered, the only commentary so far has had a narrow focus whereas this paper seeks to provide useful and relevant background data about the structure of markets and technological developments.

    • First page: 24
      Abstract: info, Volume 18, Issue 5, August 2016.
      Purpose To examine the reporting of corporate social responsibility (CSR) in the telecommunications sector. To consider how the obligations and regulations imposed on operators affect what is considered as CSR compared to other sectors. Design/methodology/approach A review of the academic literature on CSR, relating this to developments in the regulatory state and the adoption by governments and intergovernmental bodies of CSR instruments. An analysis of coltan, greenhouse gas emissions and privacy as short case studies where CSR issues and regulation meet. Findings Many activities that in other sectors would be considered CSR are required by licence or legislation, together with with much more detailed scrutiny and reporting. Originality/value A review of existing literature on CSR in telecommunications, related to theories about CSR and the regulatory state.

  • Cost Efficiency of SDN-enabled Service Function Chaining
    • First page: 45
      Abstract: info, Volume 18, Issue 5, August 2016.
      Purpose This paper models the cost efficiency of service function chaining (SFC) in software-defined LTE networks and compares it with traditional LTE networks. Design/methodology/approach Both the capital (CAPEX) and operational expenditures (OPEX) of the SFC are quantified using an average Finnish mobile network in 2015 as a reference. The modeling inputs are gathered through semi-structured interviews with Finnish mobile network operators (MNO) and network infrastructure vendors operating in the Finnish market. Findings The modeling shows that SDN can reduce SFC related CAPEX and OPEX significantly for an average Finnish MNO in 2015. The analysis on different types of MNOs implies that a MNO without DPI sees the biggest cost savings compared to other MNO types. Practical implications Service function investments typically amount to 5-20% of the overall MNO network investments, and savings in SFC may impact highly on the cost structure of a MNO. In addition, SFC acts as both a business interface, which connects the local MNOs with global Internet service providers, and as a technical interface, where the 3GPP and IETF standards meet. Thus, the cost efficient operation of SFC may bring competitive advantages to the MNO. Originality/value The results show solid basis of network related cost savings in SFC and contributes to MNOs making cost conscious investment decisions. In addition, the results act as a baseline scenario for further studies that combine SDN with virtualization to re-optimize network service functions.

  • An Ecosystem view on Third Party Mobile Payment Providers: A Case Study of
           Alipay Wallet
    • First page: 56
      Abstract: info, Volume 18, Issue 5, August 2016.
      Purpose To understand why the penetration of handset based mobile payment in most countries is still low has been an important research topic in the last fifteen years and it has been analyzed from different perspectives. However, the analysis of a single aspect cannot provide a sophisticated answer to the complicated underlying question. The aim of this paper is to understand how a relatively successful m-payment ecosystem is created and sustained through the coopetition of various actors. Design/methodology/approach To that end, we analyse the case of Alipay wallet, the m-payment service provider with the largest market share in China, and focus on understanding the motivations and subsequent actions of the organizations cooperating in the Alipay wallet core ecosystem. Findings The results show that actors with heterogeneous and complementary resources can forge sustainable collaboration. Within an ecosystem, although always constrained by resources and capabilities, the actions that the core actors take and the resulting power imbalances are dynamically changing, reflecting actors’ aim of reducing uncertainty. Research limitations/implications The main limitation of this case is that it was conducted in a Chinese context, which has specific features that may not apply to other cases. In addition, this study is based on a single case study in a single country, without comparing the results to any other cases or countries. Therefore, some modifications may have to be made when applying the framework and generalizing our results. Practical implications With regard to practical perspective, the Alipay case may serve as an example that other providers follow, taking similar actions to increase the dependency of others and reduce their own dependency on others. It is helpful to take a keystone strategy to create value within the ecosystem, and share this value with other participants. Moreover, Alipay acts as the platform provider, in addition to managing value creation within the ecosystem, and sharing that value with the other participants. Alipay focuses on the business and strategic needs of the core actors, without threatening their main business, for example, Alipay focuses on micro-payments, which does not pose a direct competition to banks, who mainly rely on macro-payments to generate profit. Micro-payments are often related to high transaction costs for banks. In addition, although it is difficult to define the boundaries of actors in the ecosystem, the core business of every actor is the key competitive or even survival condition. This notion should be taken into consideration by actors whose actions affecting the business of other ecosystem partners. For instance, Alipay will not aim to become a bank, as they know that if they do so, they cannot connect any other bank to their platform. In other words, the scope and boundary of the actors are clearly identified, so that the core business will not be threatened. Sords, we can learn from Alipay that it pays off to focus on one area, and not to let your competitors challenge you. Originality/value We proposed the StReS framework for analyzing a business ecosystem by combining resource-based review, resource dependency theories and network analysis, for investigating (i) the motivations of the organizations cooperating in the core ecosystem, and (ii) the actions they have taken to reduce dependency and uncertainty.

  • Integrating Big Data in “e-Oman”: Opportunities and challenges
    • First page: 79
      Abstract: info, Volume 18, Issue 5, August 2016.
      Purpose This paper seeks to integrate Big Data in e-government in Oman, also known as “e-Oman”, wherein Big Data might be better harnessed to tackle real-time challenges. Design/methodology/approach Besides a description of the concepts of e-government and Big Data in general, the paper underscores the dimensions of “e-Oman”. Following a qualitative approach, the paper asserts how integration of Big Data in “e-Oman” may be useful by invoking examples from four short case studies across different sectors. Findings The paper supports the integration of “e-Oman” and Big Data wherein besides providing smooth public services, the government is encouraged to forge inter- and intra-Ministerial collaboration as well as public-private partnership. The paper probes through the challenges and opportunities in effecting this integration. Practical implications The paper provides a platform for the policy makers to conceive of a synchronized programme for integrating “e-Oman” and the Big Data generated by it. This integration would go a long way in building upon the economy of Oman besides providing better public services to the individuals and businesses on a real-time basis. Originality/value This paper seeks to fill the gap in extant literature which remains scant on the integration of e-government with Big Data. This is especially true in the case of Oman where not a single study has been presented to probe this issue. Given that “e-Oman” is expanding its scope over the years, this paper foresees the concomitant opportunities and challenges in the integration of Big Data in “e-Oman”.
