Copyright, Free Culture, and the Internet
So you’re hanging out with friends, shooting some video, just having a good time. You go home, do a little editing, set it to music, post-it on YouTube and… it’s taken down for copyright issues related to the music. And boy are you mad. Fast forward in time, you’ve just spent an untold amount of time on your personal masterpiece, a documentary that you’ve posted on your personal site. The next day, you see fragments of it used in another video on another site, and boy are you mad. But you can’t have it both ways, or can you? And should anything that is posted on the internet be fair game? Join us on Tuesday for a discussion about copyright, free culture and the internet.
