Copyright on copyright development strategies

by Radu Roxana (18/04/2010 22:17) I find this point very challenging. I was wondering to what extent we can actually say that the know-how is also transmitted through internet and whether the transfer of know-how can be minimally regulated in the sense that equal access to basic information is evenly distributed around the globe. For developing countries, many priorities arise with the advent of internet. Digitalization of cultural heritage is, of course, not on the top of the list, but they may also be linked to the fact that the costs associated with learning how to do that are high both financially and resourcefully. Are there ways for establishing international "copyright" on the copyright development policies/strategies in initial transitional stages?

Different communities, different practices
by Goran Milovanovic (16/04/2010 17:53) In
different communities we face with different practices of managing intellectual property and fair-use.

Take the scientific community for example. In most cases nowadays the authors of scientific papers publish the very same papers submitted to (mostly commercial) journals on their academic web-pages where these works become available for download. It is almost a common practice to have the paper available for download from the author's web-page even months before it gets published in the respective journal. This practice is in strong support of the recent explosion of open-science projects like Plos and similar.
