The Lutsu project

  • The current system of copyright laws was born with the Licensing of the Press Act in 1662 and the Statute of Anne in 1710 (see History of copyright).

  • Most actors of the free and open culture1 assume that this legal infrastructure is basically okay. They actually “hijack” it for publishing free and open content, using what is called copyleft.

  • But it is time to go further and to realize that the current copyright system is basically not okay.

  • The Lutsu project suggests a fundamental revision of the concept of copyright itself.
