Abstract
Copyright is a part of the intellectual property rights. This ancient occurrence became during 19th century observed by the legislation. Great economical interests and values made it necessary to create rules concerning how the exploitation would take place. Several important conventions were created during this century.

Copyright is a part of the intellectual property rights. This ancient occurrence became during 19th century observed by the legislation. Great economical interests and values made it necessary to create rules concerning how the exploitation would take place. Several important conventions were created during this century. For example, the Parisconvention (1883) and the Bernconvention (1886). During the next century the technique really accelerated to today's extension with phenomenon as Internet, high transference speed, CD/DVD-players and powerful computers at low costs. This has led to that authors and other holders of the property rights have been forced to watch their creations being copied and exploited both economically and idealistically. This question of issue versus the fact that exclusive rights actually can be limiting concerning competition will bring necessary balance between these interests. It will demand a consideration to this fact from the legislator and that a balance is achieved. Problem will occur when the technique makes it possible to produce at low costs and the legitimate market continue to have a high price level. New alternative channels of exploring the products will occur and these variations are hard to get rid of. Legislation is then not the only way to a successful solution. Changing attitudes is a must, but is also a difficulty since a completely new generation of "consumers" have arrived with the notion "it's all free of charge". That this approach is devastating to the whole "industry" is not an overstatement. A crossroad is arising to the copyright. The "making" of a new alternative way of distributing films, music etc. have become "a must". This is something I have tried to make the most of in my survey. Many alternative solutions have been presented to me. The future will show whether they are sufficient enough and if they together with updated legislation will have an effect. (Less)
