remix against copyright

with 7 comments

The basic spirit of internet is connecting and sharing. People cannot stuck in the copyright law and stop creating.

While intellectual property claims their rights and their money, its all about business. We forget the origin of the creation of internet. The authority sets laws to protect the creator, or prevent their money to be stolen. It hinders the creativity,also  the chance to make progress.

As this generation is full of criminals, who are stealing ideas all around, I suppose everyone is enjoying being a pirate.

  1. I find it very appropriate that you remixed videos about copyright and piracy.

  2. Fannin:
    I loved this video! I was really interested in the idea of intellectual property while watching the RIP video. I am of the opinion that once you create something, it’s kind of out there for the world to do with it what it wants. Also, isn’t imitation the sincerest form of flattery? After watching the RIP video and your video, I plan to learn more about intellectual property and piracy. Great job!

  3. Theoretically I think the creators of music for example should reserve the right to disallow people from distributing and sharing their work. But in reality the line is very hard to draw and even if there is a law it can be difficult to enforce. I just thought of this idea that we are allowed to lend our real music CDs to someone else right? And we all know that we can rip those CDs into mp3 format on our computers through some software. But when we share these mp3 files with others, it seems to be no longer legit?! why is that?

  4. Nice work! I like the idea of community and sharing that comes out of these clips. The woman who says that without business there’s just music highlights this idea of the purity of art – it’s about people being exposed to the art and appreciating it, and about the art itself; not about the money, which some people, when they talk about “selling out,” argue that it makes something *not* art. Centuries ago, people had patrons to pay for their art – rich people who wanted to support culture and so put money into a particular talent; the artists would have made no money otherwise, because art wasn’t really a business. We don’t have that in the same way now, though, so if you want to make art for a living, you do have to make money somehow. If we take that away, does art just become a hobby? Could people afford to devote their whole lives and energies to it? This is just me playing devil’s advocate for a minute; in theory I’m very much a supporter of remix culture and the way it unites people together.

  5. You did a really good job on this video. I think it goes to the assumption that a lot of us have which is that if you are an “artist” then you should be creating art primarily for art’s sake and as a means of self expression, NOT to make money. The artist should also see more art as good and not let the wordly concerns of money get in the way. This is a bit of a lofty ideal but I think underlies alot of why the remix culture is so appealing.
