Copyright vs. Community

Krakow, Poland. Building U2 (Centrum Dydaktyczne), AGH (Krakow Technical University), Ul. Reymonta. Copyright developed in the age of the printing press, and was designed to fit with the system of centralized copying imposed by the printing press. But the copyright system does not fit well with computer networks, and only draconian punishments can enforce it. The global corporations that profit from copyright are lobbying for draconian punishments, and to increase their copyright powers, while suppressing public access to technology. But if we seriously hope to serve the only legitimate purpose of copyright--to promote progress, for the benefit of the public--then we must make changes in the other direction. This talk will be part of the second edition of IT Giants in Kraków conference, Free Software for Free Thinkers.

Copyright vs. Comunidad
by Matt Lee published Nov 13, 2008 last modified Nov 17, 2008 08:01 AM — filed under:
Lima, Perú. Centro de Tecnologías de Información y Comunicaciones de la Universidad Nacional de Ingeniería. Av. Tupac Amaru 210 - Puerta 5 UNI, Rímac. El copyright fue desarrollado en los tiempos de la imprenta y fue diseñado para funcionar en un sistema centralizado de copia impuesto por la imprenta. Pero el sistema de copyright no funciona bien con las redes de computadoras y solamente castigos severos pueden hacerlos respetar. Las corporaciones globales que lucran del copyright estan presionando por castigos siempre más injustos, para incrementar su poder de copyright mientras restringen el acceso público a la tecnología. Pero si en realidad queremos servir al único proposito legitimo del copyright—para promover el progreso, al benefico del público—entonces necesitamos hacer cambios en la dirección contraria.
