Constanze Kurz and Frank Rieger (Chaos Computer Club) will discuss with Dmytri Kleiner (Telekommunisten Network)

The Price and Value of Free Culture

One has to deal with issues of freedom, creativity, participation and property when one releases content on the Net.  Despite providing personal data to (advertising) platforms, there is the wish to exchange content and form genuine social networks. Can there be cultural commons through the internet? What’s the idea behind Copy-Left, and how can content producers and artists still survive economically?
Constanze Kurz and Dmytri Kleiner will discuss concepts like: the Creative Commons, the newly released CCC Kulturwertmark, and the „venture communism“ proposed by the Telekommunist Network.

Constanze Kurz is a computer scientist and author, who works especially on surveillance technology. She and Frank Rieger are spokespersons of the Chaos Computer Club and together they published „Die Datenfresser“ a book on data privacy protection.
