Art: imagination, expression, freedom, making. Law: regulation, statute, restriction, limitation. Between these two very distinct domains of human activity and social discourse, there is a border of high tension: copyright. Under capitalism, artists have become producers, and lovers of art and music, cinema-goers and magazine-readers are transformed into "cultural consumers".
