Abstract

In this chapter, we present the digital culture project that has been developed in Brazil and supported by the Brazilian government, which determined that the process of digital inclusion should be seen fundamentally from a cultural perspective. The chapter started with the principle of sharing of information as the basis of the information society, thus provoking a reanalysis of the productive scenario in which users actively participated in the productive scenario instead of acting as mere consumers of the technically innovative process being carried out by the companies. We discussed the concept of cultural property in the context of this new society and presented the Brazilian vision of this scenario.
