TSB's Accessing and Commercialising Content in a Digitally Networked World competition for funding, recognises that the content industries account for three-quarters the 'gross value added' (GVA) by the creative industries in the UK. The call addresses the new challenges around generating revenue from digital content, finding and establishing rights around content (including user-generated content), tools and systems that increase market visibility, interacting with digital platforms, and developing new business models.
