ICOM Italia: Author's Right, Copyright and Free Licenses for Culture on the Web

Aktivitet: Deltagelse i eller arrangering af en begivenhedOrganisation af og deltagelse i konference


Among cultural heritage professionals there is a lack of knowledge on these issues that concern the daily life of online cultural communication but which have legal implications that require the utmost attention in the re-use of cultural content online. On websites and social platforms it is easy to come across numerous offenses related to the violation of copyright or other types of
rules. But in the era of global content sharing, museums, libraries and archives and, more generally, cultural heritage institutions, do not seem to be sufficiently aware of the extraordinary opportunities in terms of cultural, social and economic development or the community that derive from the adoption of open licenses on content in the public domain.
How to clarify to the cultural community? ICOM Italy presents AUTHOR’S RIGHT, COPYRIGHT AND FREE LICENSE FOR CULTURE ON THE WEB 100 questions and answers for museums, archives and libraries to clarify the opportunities and regulatory limits related to the reuse and dissemination of digital reproductions of cultural resources on the web. Our research group works in close contact and dialogue with experts from national and international associations and stakeholders so that with a general reflection on digital cultural contents we may hope for a greater flexibility and balance between exclusive rights and freedom of reproduction.
