Creative outputs as the result of a shared cooperative process and why the property right institution may not be adequate. The case of theatre productions.

Marta Nicolodi (University of Milan)
Silvia Sacchetti (University of Trento )


This contribution aims to analyse the concept of creative output resulting from a shared cooperative process. In particular, the paper builds a justification to support the idea of why the institution of property right alone may not be functional to adequately protect creative expressions. This type of analysis will be conducted with specific reference to the sector of theatrical productions in which cooperation among participants, at different degrees, is often present. The theatre world lends itself to be a fascinating setting to make a whole range of considerations on creative teamwork and, more specifically, on the effects that governance choices produce in terms of creative capabilities.
