Copyright X

I'm a Copyright X evangelist. Every year, around September, I try to bring people to this course.

Copyright X is an online course by the Berkman Klein Center For Internet & Society, from the Harvard Law School.

A twelve-week networked course that has been offered annually since 2013 under the auspices of Harvard Law School, the HarvardX distance-learning initiative, and the Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society. 

It's free, and I recommend it (although is mostly focused in the US) for people interested in the topic. No previous experience / degree required. You can get one of these.

You won't notice it, but this project is the greatest work of copyright activism that I've seen.

José de Oliveira Ascensão - on Copyright Law & The Information Society

Prof. José de Oliveira Ascensão was a Portuguese-Brazilian lawyer and academic who for many, many decades was the main academic reference in Portugal concerning Intellectual Law (to use his expression) and, specifically, copyright. 

I knew he was also popular in Brazil, where he worked for many years, but I guess I have been underestimating how widely popular he became there. Which might help to explain such a difference in the copyright culture of both countries – but let's keep that discussion for another time.
