History of copyrights

Copyrights, rights of authors of a work, did change over time. The history of the copyrights, institutions and laws and conferences is complicated. How will copyrights be in about 20 years from now?  Seems to me the financial compensation for the use of works by other people than the maker will evolve to something new.

Auteursrecht, het recht op erkenning van de auteur als eigenaar van een werk, is nogal veranderd in de loop der tijd. De geschiedenis van het auteursrecht en de betrokken instellingen en de conferenties en wetten is ingewikkeld. Hoe zou het auteursrecht er over 20 jaar uitzien? Op de een of andere manier moet er toch een vorm van financiele compensatie bestaan voor het gebruiken door derden van het werk van de maker.

Creative Commons is a way to avoid copyright problems.

The same goes for  (ɔ) Copyleft.

One thought on “History of copyrights

  1. Good reminder at the beginning of our school year that everything we are using was made by someone. People who create things need more than just appreciation or recognition to feed themselves. I wonder what other forms of compensation will emerge?
