Yesterday, Panasonic Corporation announced the launch of its latest digital campaign for its ultra-high definition VIERA 4KTV. Panasonic’s innovative advertising campaign features original videos by winners of the Viera 4K contest (Niwina and aceblvd from France & JulianCa from Colombia) which took place on eYeka recently. The best videos were chosen by WIRED Magazine, Panasonic and eYeka.
The above video shows Joël Céré, our Global Insights & Innovation Director, presenting the results of the campaign. So far, famous publications like Adobo, Marketing, Cnet, Mumbrella, Campaign, The Drum and Wired have covered the story, make sure to check them out. Find out more on eYeka’s press release about the campaign.
In our effort to educate about crowdsourcing and provide some useful content to all those who are interested in it, we are (also) writing articles in specialized journals. Here is an English introduction into some of the points made in an article called “Role and responsibilities of crowdsourcing actors” (“Rôle et responsabilité des acteurs du crowdsourcing”) published in the July issue of the Revue Lamy Droit de l’Immatériel, a French law journal that focuses on intellectual property and digital activities.
In the article, I describe in a legal perspective and under French law, how the different actors of crowdsourcing (companies, crowdsourcing platforms and participants) interact during a collaborative promotion and what their respective responsibilities are. As it is only available in French, here’s a set of exceprts summarized in English, for all to read. It’s a perfect preparatory read for next week’s legal webinar!

Creative crowdsourcing is increasingly used by companies to spur their innovation and improve their marketing efforts. But how does it work on a legal perspective? We know from experience that many (many!) questions arise when we present eYeka, questions like: Do creators who participate give up the IP rights on their entries? How can the crowdsourcing platform help brands and creators handle the transfer of IP rights? Do creators get paid for transferring their IP rights? How does the crowdsourcing platform manage participation by underage creators?
In order to provide some answers to these questions, we’re hosting a free webinar on Wednesday July 23rd at 6PM CEST (6PM in Paris, 12PM in New York City, 9AM in Los Angeles). Continue reading
