The internet is changing the value chains of the creative industries and helping SMEs and sole traders to thrive. While the changes are most visible at the consumption stage, the internet has impacted along the full length of the creative sector value chains. However, the full impact is not well understood, and it is increasingly important to be able to measure the performance of the sector in this changing ecology, when designing interventions.

Google commissioned Oliver & Ohlbaum (O&O) to produce a report on the impact of the internet on the creative sector and the challenges involved in measuring growth in a changing sector ecology.
