Copyright in digital world

In the time when digital technology and global communication network enable rapid reproduction and dissemination of all sorts of content, significant progress of the “knowledge society” is expected, especially because of the new possibilities to offer content online with the goal to create and disseminate knowledge.

But we run into troubles very quickly. Technology enables almost everything, while the law prohibits almost everything.

How do memory institutions cope with that problem? Which modern services can they offer to serve their goals?

That was the topic of the first workshop on copyright on 18th December 2012, led by dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič.

A vast quantity of questions crossed our minds at the first workshop, that is why dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič tried to answer 20 practical questions, which are common in our daily working routine. Workshop was organised on 17. July 2013 in the entrance hall of Scientific Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Art.
