Fitzgerald, Brian, Fitzgerald, Anne, Coates, Jessica, & Pappalardo, Kylie (2010) Digital economy future directions. In Fitzgerald, Brian (Ed.) Access to Public Sector Information : Law, Technology and Policy. Sydney University Press, pp. 555-575.
Advances in information and communication technologies have brought about an information revolution, leading to fundamental changes in the way information is collected or generated, shared and distributed. The internet and digital technologies are re-shaping research, innovation and creativity. Economic research has highlighted the importance of information flows and the availability of information for access and re-use. Information is crucial to the efficiency of markets and enhanced information flows promote creativity, innovation and productivity. There is a rapidly expanding body of literature which supports the economic and social benefits of enabling access to and re-use of public sector information.1 (Note that a substantial research project associated with QUT’s Intellectual Property: Knowledge, Culture and Economy (IPKCE) Research Program is engaged in a comprehensive study and analysis of the literature on the economics of access to public sector information.)
