Languages of publication
The aim of this article is to identify the differences between literal - often superficial - using the achievements of Karl Marx and the real potential of the classic theory of socio-economic. The area of its application will be events and processes taking place in the area, generally speaking, the new economy. This literal use the creator’s thought of historical materialism is not indeed the most harmful. There are intellectuals who use the name of Marx as a tool for ideological struggle. For example, accusing supporters of "free software" infatuation with the Communism. So it is Marx's theory and the person falsely useful to all those who contrary to the scientific interpretation of the thoughts the author of "the Capital" treat them as an "element of the practical doctrine". Meanwhile, the legacy of Karl Marx has considerable - in our opinion - the explanatory potential. The current discourse related phenomena such as downloading music or video materials from the Internet is based on legal interpretations of property rights. This state of affairs is obviously not without influence on the shape of the debate from the perspective of sociological reflection on society distorted image created by the legal doctrine. In this text we will try to demonstrate that the scientific description of empirical facts related to intellectual property rights can only benefit from the introduction to the elements drawn from Marx’s theory. A tool to make such an attempt would be a reinterpretation of the major categories in this debate on the basis of - derived primarily from the German philosopher - a category of property.
