The Right to Create Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • The harmonization of information systems that characterizes this fourth stage of the information society has made possible new types of threats to cultural rights such as the right to create. Here these new threats as experienced by avant garde and traditional artists are explored, with attention to the restriction of speech rights by differential application across the information production chain, the paradox of the simultaneous loss of belief in the possibility of creativity and the commodification of innovative processes and products, the effects of computerization of innovative activity, and new legal approaches to the treatment of non-linear behaviours. © 1998, SAGE PUBLICATIONS.
