A NEW CULTURAL ECONOMY - When Intellectual Property Runs Up against Its Limits
In 2008, the Ars Electronica Festival is scrutinizing the value of
intellectual property and thereby facing one of the core issues of our modern knowledgebased
society: that of freedom of information vs. copyright protection, big profit-making
opportunities vs. the vision of an open knowledge-based society that seeks to build its
new economy on the basis of creativity and innovation. And beyond that, we want to
hammer out practical, workable rules to govern this new reality.
