Authorship public policies in Brazil a discoursive analysis


New possibilities of technological convergence, in which spheres in the author/audience relationship are eliminated, mean changes in the models of construction and circulation of cultural goods, bringing questions to the sense of copyright instituted by laws, agreements and treaties, in a confrontation between regulation and transgression. This fact highlights a trial of strengths between discourses, such as copyright and copyleft, passing through some not always confessed, but strongly present in society; this intersection of discourses affects the current Brazilian model of author guarantees, destabilizing the current legal file about copyright, especially to the right regarding the reproduction of a work. It is intended as the primary objective of research to understand how a public policy of authorship in Brazil is been established, observing in particular the position the State is taking in setting this policy, as well as the relationship between the protection of the creator and the access to the works. From the theoretical and methodological basis of Discourse Analysis, we take as object the Brazilian legislation and international agreements to which Brazil is a signatory; the website of the Ministry of Culture (Ministério da Cultura), section Copyright (Direitos Autorais); the National Copyright Forum (Fórum Nacional de Direito Autoral); websites of Brazilian authors associations; and positions taken by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) about the subjects of copyright.
