In one of my previous publications I attempted to emphasize the relationship of the free use exceptions and the modern culture (that is, the intellectual creations and performances of the society obtained so far, and the general attitude towards these) in light of the Gowers Review of Intellectual Property. Since then several remarkable events occurred in national and international copyright laws especially concerning the internet. In the present article I attempt to reach a new general conclusion, of whether and how the internet-related technologies may affect the "digital culture" of our life. The article starts with a theoretical introduction, including the emphasize put on the three separate ways of the effects exercised by digital technologies upon the improvement, preservation, and deterioration of digital culture. Part two speaks about the phenomena of Web 2.0, that is, the way how internet users communicate via the World Wide Web and contributes to the culture at the same time. This part makes it clear the present copyright rules are applicable to solve the legal controversies raised by Web 2.0. Part three introduces the topic of digitization of already existing works, and emphasizes that there are several major differences between the existing copyright regimes of the European Union, the United Kingdom, Hungary and the United States. The author proposes to consider the necessity of broadening the current rules on digitization by libraries in order to allow the much broader preservation and making available of the valuable cultural heritage of our world. Part four reflects the debatable question of filesharing. The article concludes that though filesharing application may have several positive effects as well, it is clear that they are generally used for the illegal activities, and therefore have a remarkable negative effect upon the entertainment industry and the culture.
