New possibilities of technological convergence, in which spheres in the author/audience relationship are eliminated, mean changes in the models of construction and circulation of cultural goods, bringing questions to the sense of copyright instituted by laws, in a confrontation between regulation and transgression. This affects the author-guaranteed model of many countries, destabilizing the current legal file about copyright. This paper focuses on the conflicts between protection and restriction which have been intensified, as a result of social and technical changes, including the new possibilities of work reproduction. This analysis is part of research with a primary objective of understanding how a public policy of authorship in Brazil has been established, observing particularly the position the State is taking in setting this policy, as well as some conceptions and actions of civil society. From the theoretical and methodological basis of Discourse Analysis, we took as the object of research the Brazilian legislation, the Copyright National Forum, and some Brazilian author protection association websites.
