Why is there no device made with a copyright button? I know you can ctrl/shift/c etc but if there was any minimum attempt at integrity within the tech community there would have been pressure on apple/microsoft/sui generis to build a c into keyboards and keypads. The very absence of a copyright button on every device ever made ( please correct me if I am wrong here,) really says it all doesn't it?
some times I read TD and Mike, you do an awesome job of keeping people informed...thankyou...we are heading into uncharted territory where the artist as we know it becomes a synthetic construct ...music meets XNA...who will claim the ownership/genesis of a song that earns millions of dollars in royalties when everybody is linked to the machine?? (I'm expecting the moron comments, really, does no one have any imagination left?) namaste
Go for 100%, Erin. This is not fair use, hell the guy playing flute on men down under just died and they were censur4ed for ripping off the kookaburra song which was nothing like. Your song is your child, reclaim your parentage.
How very interesting, your remark. If you can bear to, look at "50cent" killing people in his latest "music" video on you tube. It's not right. While these Hollywood entertainment outfits bay for copyright blood, crap like this is, quite literally, poisoning our collective psyche.
G. Bankers make money from money, now entertainment industry makes intellectual property from intellectual property. This is an extension of the most anti-productive crap to hit the world like a Hadron Collider induced time warp. DMCA is the most seriously f***ed up sh*t since it's sponsor declared fellatio to be not a sexual act:(???
That he should use the photograph is fair enough. That he should claim copyright is a despicable contortion of the law as set out in the Berne convention, which has been signed by many countries and could be regarded as default, at least in the spirit of the thing. The whole point here, imho, is that the spirit of the law has been broken against the wheel of it's technicality, as indeed has the spirit of the law as signed under the Geneva convention regarding the treatment of prisoners of war.
I am sure the guy with the sand running out of the holes in his shoes will at some stage want some reparation on his video screen shot. I certainly would.
honestly, what a bunch of crass comments; here is a BIG story, someone who is brave enough to speak up and all you can do is insult her by calling her mentally ill!!
You're all about copyright reality but you can't seem to see the wood for the trees; anyway you obviously don't have the humility to feel the slightest shame about your awful tech-hubris but you could start here:
