Competing with CopyrightMarch 3, 2010 Leave a comment
As technology continues to redefine our daily interactions, it is becoming clear that we need to learn a new form of literacy and quickly. Even more important than literacy though is the need to critically analyze and comprehend the new language which we encounter. An overwhelming call at first, but one that is made easier when we begin to embrace exploration and collaborate with one another as we learn. Here is a brilliant little Ted Talk Lawrence Lessig gave in 2007 regarding copyright and creativity.
Thanks Santi. It’s a provocative question about the “abolition of copyright.” And, I agree with Lessig’s point that you can’t stop people from sampling and remixing, and we need some alternatives to criminalizing these forms of creativity.
