Prawokultury.pl is an educational website which will – in an intelligible and reliable way – inform you about any matters related with the subject of copyright. It has been created as a part of the Future of Copyright project finansed by the Trust for Civil Society in Central and Eastern Europe.
Nowadays, with the common access to copyrighted works and technical means which enable us to modify them, it is crucial to be aware of what the copyright laws allow us to do. We claim that the discourse used in Poland to talk about copyright is unfair. We aim at changing the language of the public debate,which mainly concerns the rights of authors and producers while stigmatizing average users, especially in the context of the development of digital technologies. We think that the copyright law is a social agreement which could be and should be changed.
In the scope of the project there are several publications such as the Polish translation of Philippe Aigrain’s book Sharing: Culture and the Economy in the Internet Age, a collection of essays by Eben Moglen and by Cory Doctorow and we organised three editions of the CopyCamp conference. The project website prawokultury.pl is meant to be a valuable source of information concerning events in Poland and all over the world related with the subject of copyright. We will also take part social consultations announced on the local and international level.
