What is the Future of the Right to Culture?

Marta Skotnicka

The Modern Poland Foundation presents the results of the research on the possible future scenarios of creating, sharing and using cultural goods and the impact of copyright on the state of European society, culture, education and creative sectors in the perspective of the year 2040.

Copyright law is a lens focusing a lot of different and complex problems – from issues related to fundamental rights such as freedom of speech, freedom of communication and right to privacy, through constitutional models of political life, to tectonic changes in the markets caused by technological changes. The status of this legislation determines not only the work of many business sectors, but also the basic issues related to communication of hundreds of millions of people, a lot of citizens treating copyright law as a way of earning a living, level of education, or the operation of high culture.

(from Introduction by Jarosław Lipszyc)

The report summarising the project is available in Polish and English.
