Human Rights Law Might not be the Answer: Response to Article 19’s Principles on Copyright
Human Rights Law Might not be the Answer: Response to Article 19’s Principles on Copyright | LSE Media Policy Project: Anne Barron: "Hackers are experimenting with new formulations of both freedom and property – re-thinking how both creative autonomy and economic security could be possible for authors in the new economy that the Internet has helped to produce. They are also engaged in imaginative efforts to re-mix trade mark rights, moral rights, ‘copyleft’ licences and informal hacker norms into a new array of authors’ rights that could advance these ideals more effectively than conventional copyrights. The experiments are unfinished and beset by contradictions, but they are arguably more responsive to the exigencies of the ‘digital age’ than the lofty notions enunciated in international human rights law."
