Resumen

En la primera sección de este artículo se argumenta que el problema central del derecho de autor consiste en resolver la tensión entre dos intereses: el interés del titular de derechos de autor de controlar los usos de su obra y el interés del público de acceder a ella. Ello se hace mostrando cómo esta tensión se manifiesta en el concepto de autor y en el concepto de dominio público. A continuación, se responde a lo que se denomina “la objeción del escéptico”. Por último, al establecer las condiciones que debe cumplir una teoría capaz de justificar el derecho de autor, se ofrece una estrategia para resolver la tensión identificada al comienzo de este trabajo.

 

Abstract

In the first section of the article, it will be shown that the central problem regarding copyright comprises solving the tension between two interests: the interest of the copyright holder in controlling the access and uses of the work by third parties and the interest of the public of accessing to it. This will be done by showing how this tension manifests itself in the concepts of authorship and public domain. Next, the article advances a reply to what is called the “skeptic's objection”. Finally, by establishing the conditions that a theory must comply in order to justify copyright, the article develops a strategy for solving the tension identified in the first section.

 

Abstrato

Na primeira seção de este artigo argumenta-se que o problema central do direito autoral consiste em resolver a tensão entre dois interesses: o interesse do titular de direitos autorais de controlar os usos de sua obra e o interesse do público de acessar a esta. Isto faz-se mostrando como esta tensão manifesta-se no conceito de autor e no conceito de domínio público. Seguidamente, responde-se à denominada “objeção do cético”. Por último, ao estabelecer as condições que deve cumprir uma teoría capaz de justificar o direito autoral, se oferece uma estratégia para resolver a tensão identificada no princípio deste trabalho.
