The International CopyCamp Conference 2015
Understanding the Social Impacts of Copyright
We have a pleasure to invite you to the 4th International CopyCamp Conference which will take plce on November 4 in Warsaw.
The event is a unique opportunity to present reflections and participate in the balanced and multi-sided debate over the influence of copyright on social changes taking place around the world. The conference is directed not only to representatives of cultural institutions and the media, creative sectors, academic, legal, political and non-governmental circles but also to the widest possible group of people interested in the social and economic aspects of copyright who wish to present their opinions on the international arena.
The conference is a platform of exchange of ideas represented by creative groups, social activists, journalists, lawyers, media-makers, academics, students and politicians taking (at times extremely) different positions in ongoing debates on the copyright laws and ways of participating in culture. The aim of the conference is to allow an effective dialogue between all interested parties.
CopyCamp Conference is part of the Future of the Copyright project conducted by the Modern Poland Foundation.
Dr. Lev Manovich is the author of seven books including Software Takes Command, Soft Cinema: Navigating the Database, and The Language of New Media which was described as „the most suggestive and broad ranging media history since Marshall McLuhan.” Manovich is a Professor at The Graduate Center, CUNY, and a Director of the Software Studies Initiative that works on the analysis and visualization of big visual cultural data.
