We have just received our printed copy of the German Linux Magazin, featuring news about CopyCamp ! This year we will pay particular attention to exchange of Polish-German experiences in copyright issues. We invite everyone interested to join us!
Are young people interested in shaping the future EU law? Bernhard Hayden, net activist, will tell us at CopyCamp about the campaign of the Young Pirates of Europe which aims to involve young people in fighting for a more user-friendly copyright law.
This year at CopyCamp Luca Guidobaldi will speak about exclusive rights in the light of the Bauman’s concept of liquid modernity. Luca works in a law firm in Rome where he assists and advises a very diverse group of clients: from italian start-ups to big international brands, from solo artists to showbiz people.
Delia Browne, the head of the Australian National Copyright Unit and co-founder of Peer 2 Peer University, is going to be our guest at CopyCamp 2017. Delia, who is an active advocate of open educational resources, will tell us about fixing copyright for education in the 21st century.
Our partners at CopyCamp 2017 include the Institut für Rechtsfragen der Freien und Open Source Software (ifrOSS.de) and Free Software Foundation Europe. It will result in an increased exchange of experiences on issues mutually shared between Poland and Germany at the national level, but also subject to a heated debate currently taking place at the EU level. The Polish-German cooperation at CopyCamp is co-financed using the funds of the German Federal Foreign Office transferred by the Foundation for Polish-German Cooperation. The funds allow us in particular to offer travel grants for German guests who require such support.
