Text: Guerrilla Open Access Manifesto | AARON SWARTZ

Body: 

 

Information is power. But like all power, there are those who want to keep it for themselves. The world’s entire scientific and cultural heritage, published over centuries in books and journals, is increasingly being digitized and locked up by a handful of private corporations. Want to read the papers featuring the most famous results of the sciences? You’ll need to send enormous amounts to publishers like Reed Elsevier.

Body: 

..

En general tendemos a distinguir entre el arte tradicional y el digital señalando que este es tecnológico y el resto no. Sin embargo, desde un punto de vista jurídico no existe diferencia entre uno y otro por cuanto cuando hablamos de tecnología o de un pincel nos referimos en ambos casos a que son instrumentos que posibilitan la creación artística.

Body: 

 

“Good artist borrows, great artist steals” is a statement that is commonly believed to have been coined by Picasso. A more thorough search reveals though that T.S. Eliot had already alleged another almost identical statement: “Talent imitates, genius steals”. Picasso stole Eliot’s line and thereby proved his genius. This very ironic example seems to be an ideal preamble for the highly provocative speculations on authorship, originality, appropriation, and plagiarism, which this paper aims to address.

Text: Piratical Practices | NICK BRIZ

Body: 

 

 

“It is empirically true that the law of what we now call intellectual property has often lagged behind piratical practices, and indeed that virtually all its central principles, such as copyright, were developed in response to piracy. To assume that piracy merely derives from legal doctrine is to get the historyand therefore the politics, and much else besidesback to front” [1]
