Let me briefly introduce myself: I have a PhD in Information Society and I am a lawyer, active in consulting, coaching and in researching the field of copyright and ICT law. I have been leading the Project since 2005 and now I work in the Italian university, following a Ph.D. program about Information Society.
I give lectures on the main topics of my research and I give my support and co-operation to many projects that are interested in promoting the socalled “open culture” in my country. I published books and articles in Italian and I am currently working on their English translation. The first book that I decided to edit in English is about the Creative Commons licenses and it was published online in August 2010 (go). All of my works are released with opencontent licenses and it would be a pleasure for me if you use and redistribute them at your convenience.
For my PhD thesis I realized a survey about the topic "Copyright in the digital age: attitudes, social perception and level of awareness". Read more.
