On September 26, a CopyCamp conference will be held by the Modern Poland Foundation. It will take place in a Warsaw cinema of a great tradition: Kultura. The meeting will be fully devoted to the issues relating to the copyright law. For the first time, the representatives of (sometimes extremely) diverse views on the availability of cultural goods and active participation in culture will meet in such a wide circle. The aim of the event is to enable them to enter into a dialogue.

Our special guest will be Nina Paley, a famous American cartoonist and activist belonging to the free culture movement. Among guests who have confirmed their participation are: Paweł Zalewski, Hirek Wrona, Lidia Geringer de Oedenberg, Artur Kurasiński, Krzysztof Lewandowski, Radek Czajka – please see more details on the conference website.

Within the frames of a modern, „camp” formula of the conference we enable those willing to do so to present their opinion on the matters discussed in the form of a 10-minute presentation. In order to offer yourself as a speaker, you have to register on the website. The deadline for registration is November 12, 2012.

Those interested in participating in the meeting as observers need to register through the registration system on the website, whereas those who cannot attend the conference will be able to watch live coverage on the CopyCamp and The Right to Culture websites and on the website of The Polish Filmmakers Association.

You are warmly invited to join our debate on the copyright law.

The CopyCamp conference is a part of the Future of Copyright. project carried out by the Modern Poland Foundation.

Zastanawiam się czy będą jeszcze jakieś dyskusje(debaty) o reformie prawa autorskiego czy CopyCamp jest ostatnią z serii debat poświęconych prawu autorskiemu

Mogę dziś powiedzieć, że zainteresowanie Copycampem jest na tyle duże, że z pewnością dyskusje będą miały ciąg dalszy.
