Since we are dominated by digital reality, we all had to realize that copyright exists at all, said Kinga Jakubowska, president of the “Legalna Kultura” foundation, on Sunday on TVN24. – We want to be “pulled”, we want to be visible, we want to have a lot of plays. On the other hand, we want our works to be taken care of in some way, said jazz singer Dorota Miśkiewicz.
April 26 was World Intellectual Property Day. On Sunday, the jazz singer Dorota Miśkiewicz and Kinga Jakubowska, president of the “Legalna Kultura” foundation and ambassador of the Legalna Kultura campaign, talked about respecting copyright in practice on Sunday in the TVN24 program “You Get Up and Weekend”.
“We are all participants in the feast of enjoying culture”
– Since we are dominated by digital reality, we all had to realize that there is copyright at all, which sneakily infiltrated our reality, our everyday life – said Jakubowska.
As she emphasized, copyright protection “is in our interest”. – We are all participants in this feast related to the use of culture, as well as a whole lot of things that involve property. For example, whether our employer owns our image, who owns the products of our work, as well as how we need to photograph during the holidays to feel safe, or who owns the copyright to the photo of our child. Suddenly, it turns out that this is not only about creativity, but also about us and our safety – she pointed out. She added that the biggest problem is “piracy, plagiarism and the illegal use of someone else’s property.”
Jakubowska noted that “usually we want to share and use the song because it’s great, because it’s our beloved artist, the best movie in the world.” “And at this point, we’re paradoxically going against who we like the most,” she added.
– We want to be “pulled”, we want to be visible, we want to have a lot of plays. On the other hand, we want our works to be taken care of in some way, said Dorota Miśkiewicz. – And I see that this awareness in society is growing – she added. The artist pointed out that this process goes hand in hand with changes in the law. However, she emphasized that the most important thing for her was that the change should take place “in people”.
Miśkiewicz: I love jazz for freedom
On World Jazz Day, which is celebrated on April 30, Miśkiewicz confessed why she loves this genre of music.
“For freedom,” said the singer. She added that “one of the elements of jazz is ecstasy.” – In fact, there is more of these emotions in jazz than in other music. These are the emotions that when musicians play, their faces turn red and the audience applauds because they can’t stand it, she said. She argued that jazz is music for everyone. “It’s not that hard if you don’t want to analyze it,” she added.
