Abstract

The production of knowledge and intangible assets such as those produced by the creative industry gain a strategic space in the world economy as the widespread diffusion of these goods was facilitated by information and communication technologies (TICs). This project aims to examine the regulatory aspects related to the creative economy evaluating and comparing international treaties and regulatory actions of international organizations such as UNESCO, WIPO and the WTO, focusing on the paradox between diffusion, access and restrictions inherent to the current information society. It aims to understand the effects of these discussions of cultural production in the construction of a new paradigm of economic and social development that include the reconstruction of the regulatory framework of the Copyright Law and the implementation of new patterns of production and access to knowledge.
