Abstract:This paper pays attention to the symbiotic nature of "infringement" and "innovation" emerged in the process of participatory cultural production. From a micro-economic perspective, we conducted a concrete analysis of the economic value contained in the participatory culture and explore how will it impact on the rights holders under different levels of copyright protection. The result shows that there is a state of interest intersection between participatory cultural producers and the right holders, and holding a "tolerance and acceptance " attitude towards participatory cultural production will help the right holders to improve the level of cultural works innovation and thus obtain greater economic benefits from the existing market. On this basis, rational choices which aim to attract such creative groups to become the creative sources of cultural product production and the booster of market expansion should be made by the right holders.
