MISTICA: Re: Fwd: Copyrights & Distance Learning

Yoe,

yo pongo desde hace varios anos (!) todo mi material,
tanto el publicado como el no publicado/impreso en mi
website. Es decir que soy mi propia editorial y no tengo
ningun interes especial en que las editoriales de la
modernidad sigan sacandonos el jugo como lo han
estado haciendo durante siglos. Esta ha sido una situacion
de oligopolio bastante inaguantable. Naturalmente que esto
no significa ni que me he vuelto un enemigo del libro o de
las editoriales, sino que pienso que hay que repartir de
modo mas equitable los intereses. Para lo autores lo
importante es la difusion de sus textos (aunque aqui hay
problemas especiales relacionados con situaciones de
trabajo, patentes etc.). Todo esto hace el problema muy
dificil a nivel nacional e internacional. En otras palabras
necesitamos nuevas reglas sociales, eticas, tecnicas,
legales... de juego. A veces tengo la impresion que los
defensores del copyright lo hacen de una forma casi
como un dogma religioso y argumentando que defienden
los derechos del autor, cuando en realidad son los derechos
del editor los que estan en juego. Bueno, no hay ni que
simplificar ni que dramatizar la situacion, pero la red ha
creado, entre otras cosas, una nueva situacion con relacion
al reparto de poderes (en el doble sentido de la palabra)
y de posesiones.
Saludos
Rafael
