Defining Creative industries

Creative industries comprise activities related to the creation, production and/or distribution of creative goods and services as well as with the integration of creative elements into wider processes and other sectors. Creative industries are sometimes referred to as the cultural industries although the two terms are not synonymous. According to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), cultural industries refer to industries which combine the creation, production and commercialisation of creative contents which are intangible and cultural in nature. The contents are typically protected by copyright and can take the form of a good or a service. Cultural industries generally include printing, publishing and multimedia, audiovisual, phonographic and cinematographic productions as well as crafts and design.

The term creative industries encompasses a broader range of activities which include the cultural industries as well as all cultural or artistic production, whether live or produced as an individual unit. The creative industries are those in which the product or service contains a substantial element of artistic or creative endeavour and include activities such as architecture and advertising. Creative industries thus consist of activities drawing on advertising, architecture, art, crafts, design, fashion, film, music, performing arts, publishing, R&D, software, toys and games, TV and radio, and video games.
