Copyright vs.Community

(Colchester, VT, from Apr 17, 2008 04:30 PM to Apr 17, 2008 06:30 PM)

Saint Michael's College, Colchester, VT. Detailed location: Saint Michael's College, Cheray Science Hall, room 101, One Winooski Park, Colchester, Vermont. 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.

Las corporaciones globales que se benefician del copyright están planeando come hacer castigos draconianos, y aumentan la energía del copyright, mientras que suprime el acceso público a la tecnología. Pero si nosotros seriamente esperamos responder al único propósito legítimo del copyright -- de promover el progreso, para el beneficio del publico -- entonces debemos realizar cambios en otra dirección.
