The 'Original' label, as used by the entertainment industry has a complex and inconsistent use.

Content on a Platform that is not Original is considered Licensed Content - basically a catch-all term for content that is licensed for availability on the Platform (in the market) as another party 'owns' the content.

Licensed Content has the additional complexity of being Market-centric information - an enrichment in the Gene that Parrot Analytics also seeks to curate.
