Copyright law creates incentives for people to invest their time, talent and other resources in creating new material -

particularly cultural and educational material, which benefits society

is taking analogue sources such as
music on a cassette tape

Digitisation and the World Wide Web not only has the potential to give us access to all the books, movies, music
and imagery ever
In education we
through the
legal mashup
of articles that preceded us by
"quoting text from others"

It's considered
an honour

by the original authors
Not Theft
However while protection for a return on investment is one thing
There is no question that creators are due a fair return on their investment and copyright helps protect this
Because one doesn't spend 100s of millions creating a blockbuster movie to give it away for free
So why can't we
show scenes from a movie on YouTube without explicit permission?
Why can’t we
sample music and upload
it to SoundCloud without explicit permission?
Why are these things considered
when quoting from text isn't?
Because copyright law is mired in the past
In a time before the
World Wide Web was available
In a time before
In the past technology was the barrier
because to copy and mashup film cost 10's of thousands of dollars
Now we can mashup and
on a smartphone in the palm of our hand
But it's not copying,
it's creating
is a licence that can be applied which encourages the re-use and sharing of creative works including websites, publications, videos and music
The music you’re listening to was released under
Creative Commons
with the permission already set by the author at the time of creation
- so seeking permission for reuse is not required

and the World Wide Web have enabled a culture of mashup, remix and sharing
It’s time for
copyright law
and also embrace a culture of mashup, remix and sharing

We’re made to feel as
though we’re stealing food
from the artist’s table
It also gives us the ability to publish our own creations to the world, at the push of a button
If we take

Just like referencing
quoted text
is what enables us to
different media sources into new works
Like this presentation with its music, photos and sounds
Because there are rarely any original ideas anymore...
And with the artist releasing under Creative Commons it means they are
encouraging their work to be used and shared
as long as they are attributed
And it's how today's digital generation create new works
