Abstract

This book offers a fundamental contribution to the literature on the creative industries and the knowledge-based economy by focusing on three aspects: urban spaces as key sites of capitalist restructuring, creative industries policies as state technologies aimed at economic exploitation, and the role of networks of aesthetic production in inflecting these tendencies. It simultaneously goes beyond these debates by integrating a concern with the cultural and aesthetic dimensions of the creative industries. As such, the book is relevant to researchers interested in the transdisciplinary project of a cultural political economy of creativity and urban change.

Abstract

What can and can’t be copied is a matter of law, but also of aesthetics, culture, and economics. The act of copying, and the creation and transaction of rights relating to it, evokes fundamental notions of communication and censorship, of authorship and ownership—of privilege and property.This volume conceives a new history of copyright law that has its roots in a wide range of norms and practices. The essays reach back to the very material world of craftsmanship and mechanical inventions of Renaissance Italy where, in 1469, the German master printer Johannes of Speyer obtained a five-year exclusive privilege to print in Venice and its dominions. Along the intellectual journey that follows, we encounter John Milton who, in 1644 accused the English parliament of having been deceived by the ‘fraud of some old patentees and monopolizers in the trade of bookselling’ (i.e. the London Stationers’ Company). Later revisionary essays investigate the regulation of the printing press in the North American colonies as a provincial and somewhat crude version of European precedents, and how, in the revolutionary France of 1789, the subtle balance that the royal decrees had established between the interests of the author, the bookseller, and the public, was shattered by the abolition of the privilege system. Some of the essays also address the specific evolution of rights associated with the visual and performing arts.

Abstract

Die Grenzen Europas sind seit einigen Jahren gen Osten verschoben - Zeit für eine erste Bilanz des Alltags im »neuen Europa«. Wie wurde der homo sovieticus zum erfolgreichen Europäer? Was bedeuten heute Gleichheit und Differenz, Gemeinschaft und Individualität in den osteuropäischen Gesellschaften? Diese Studie untersucht die Logiken sozialer Differenzierung, die im Kontext der postsozialistischen Transformation und europäischen Integration auftreten. Konsumstrategien, Lebensstile und Körpertechniken werden als Ausdrucksformen veränderter Vorstellungen von Erfolg und gutem Leben analysiert. Es entsteht eine eindrucksvolle Ethnographie des neuen osteuropäischen Alltags.
