legislation*, we will analyze the copyright system from the perspective 
of *researchers* – anthropologists, sociologists and economists. We are 
interested in the *language of the international debate* on copyright 
and communication within this debate. What is more, we aim at discussing 
*practical **and innovative**solutions for the creative sector* as a 
step on the path to working out a copyright system that would be 
satisfactory to all involved parties.

The special guest of the conference will be *Eben Moglen*, professor of 
Law and Legal History at the Columbia University in New York, the 
founder and chairman of the Software Freedom Law Center, the long-time 
legal counsel to The Free Software Foundation and co-creator (together
