The FCForum is an international network that accompanies the oXcars - its practical
side. It puts together and coordinates a global framework for action and a shared agenda
for issues related to free culture and access to knowledge. The FCForum has a strong
international presence among civil society and numerous institutions.
The #oxcars12 and the #FCForum12 will be an opportunity to launch a series of mechanisms
or proposals civil society proposals around the following issues:
· Taringa! Is a virtual community for sharing posts, with 13 million registered users.
This website and X.net will launch the Spanish section of Taringa! Música, in which
profits will be shared with authors. In this way, we are defending new cultural models
against a repressive approach to copyright.
· To promote this vision in the context of Europe, the FCForum in conjunction with La
Quadrature du Net, Richard Stallman (the inventor of free software and copyleft
practices) and other platforms will launch a Positive Agenda against restrictive laws
· This Positive Agenda is a pilot mechanism that will expand to attain global political
scope, because it is through the Internet that we will build the democracy of the future.
To this end, various sections of the FCForum will revolve around debates and workshops on
Network Democracy, freedom of information, transparency.
· Lastly, X.net has prepared a study that aims to transform Crowdfunding into a real
financing tool rather than a simple form of poverty management.
Culture existed before the cultural industries and the government that want to bring
about its downfall. And it will still be here after them.
Creation is sharing.
Free, high-quality culture.
