With the rapidly growing amount of "crowd creations", a vast new field has opened up for legal research and for the development of a new approach in the field of intellectual property law. "Crowd creation" is a social phenomenon where a large number of people conjointly create a work or make an invention in such a manner that the result forms an indivisible whole (e.g. open software). The people involved usually do not even know each other personally and do not pursue commercial goals. Their motivation to contribute to a crowd creation is commonly based on personal interests other than direct financial compensation or at least mere altruism. "Crowd creation" will result in intellectual property issues with specific economical connotations, including ownership and confidentiality issues. In this respect the question arises, if the (European) Intellectual Property Law provides a comprehensible legal framework dealing with "crowd creations".
