    Abstract

    This article argues that copyright’s commodification of creativity has established a structure enabling the domination of cultural output by multinational media and entertainment corporations. The consequences of this are cultural filtering, homogenisation of cultural products, loss of the public domain, and failure of the development process. Thus, the international copyright system poses a direct, but apparently unacknowledged, threat to the aims of the UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of Cultural Diversity. The article concludes by calling for a more realistic approach in the Convention to the relationship between copyright and cultural diversity
