'Overprotecting intellectual property is as harmful as underprotecting it.'

- Alex Kozinski

This year ROT(T)TERDAM will extend Witte de Withstraat to the Meent! The Exhibition CopyClash will open at 17:00 just as 'De Wereld van Witte de With' is breaking down. It is also the official release of the 1st issue of Trailer magazine.

Our cultural innovation has always been guaranteed by building upon the works and ideas of others. Especially in our digital era many works are being barricaded by copyrights or other forms of intellectual property laws. This endangers the nature of our cultural innovative ecosystem by eroding the cultural soil, essential for the growth of new cultures.
The works in CopyClash and the corresponding magazine shows how cultural innovation is held back by the clashing borders of today's intellectual property, copyright, originality, authenticity and plagiarism.
In order to protect our cultural richness we are in need of new approaches that create a better balance between the availability of cultural goods and the reward or protection of it's authors.
