  • Augusto Sebastio

    (University of Bari, Italy)


The Internet creativity is just one of the effects of digital revolution. In the era of social participation and the new forms of communication, creativity is involved in a new process of participation and many forms of creative expression are developed. This process is made by the participation of Millennials and Digital Native generation and their facility to realize new concepts elaborating contents that still exist. The speed of the transmission and sharing of ideas makes this instrument a driving force for economy and business but also an instrument for imposing new forms of creativity carving out an important role in the field of protection of intellectual property and new forms of copyright out form the ordinary idea of copyright historically considered. The implications of this revolution in terms of protection of intellectual property are irreversible and it could change the approach of new generations to the respect of what is the result of other works and studies made by artists, scientists, inventors, firms, people who gave to the world their contribute investing minds, time, money and who need protection for their work. The Internet world needs education to protection of intellectual property but free possibility for creativity at the same time. The problem, in terms of violation of copyright, has an expansive propagation looking to percentage and activity of connections and without any form of deregulation or without an international Electronic Lex there will be not an universal solution, consequences are still unknown, with incredible negative copyright effects.
