Another essay on the Website of the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam - the postgraduate study and research programme of the Willem de Kooning Academy Hogeschool - this time by Lawrence Liang about "Copyright, Cultural Production and Open Content Licensing".

In this on-line publication, Lawrence Liang discusses at length the history and practice of copyright and open content licensing for the cultural domain. The academic paper is the outcome of his three month research period at the Media Design Research Programme.
You may find this Article, with the wonderful Introduction-Title "The CD Writer as a weapon of mass destruction" via this Link.

The structure of the paper is as follows:
1. Contextualizing the history of copyright and licenses
2. FLOSS and the GNU GPL
3. Conceptual challenges posed to copyright by free software movement
4. Translating the GPL into the realm of cultural production
5. A brief survey and reading of open content licenses
6. Reading the license beyond the legal framework
7. Moving beyond the liberal discourse that pervades the open content debate

An Overview on other Publications of the Institute could be found on this Site.
