Copyright: Historia, Cultura, Industria

Entiende el significado del término copyright

¿Has pensado alguna vez en cómo un compositor o un escritor se ganan la vida? Este curso desmenuza la historia del proceso de profesionalización de los creadores. Verás cómo la legislación sobre copyright se ha desarrollado a partir de la idea de que la obra artística es propiedad de su autor. Descubrirás cómo el avance de la comunicación, a partir de la invención de la imprenta en el siglo 15, derivó en el crecimiento de las industrias creativas. Hablaremos, asimismo, de la tecnología digital para entender por qué ella conlleva oportunidades y retos para los dueños de copyrights.
