Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This articles aims to determine what copyrights corresponds to the press professionals in Chile and their written publications, initially created for a printed media but then exploited through new digital formats. This issue is not expressly resolved by Law 17.336, since as it was published in 1970, it did not considered the current forms of technological exploitation, such as online editions. However, we propose as research thesis that certain uses of the news media regarding the publications of their workers in a digital environment are legally admissible, since it has operated between both a tacit transfer of rights. On the other hand, with respect to independent professionals, their publications may only be used by the owner of a news media in the digital environment if they obtain a transfer of rights or express authorization from the author.
