Transcript of Ownership & control: copyright, DRM, creative commons

current situation Ownership and control DRM Free cultures are cultures that leave a great deal open for others to build upon; unfree, or permission, cultures leave much less. Ours was a free culture. It is becoming much less so. copyright Creative Commons
licences Attribution No Derivatives Attribution Non-Commercial Attribution Non-Commercial Share Alike Attribution Non-Commercial No Derivatives No Rights Reserved Attribution Attribution Share Alike Fair use it is not a right, but a defense against litigation Fair use aplies only for limited purposes

Defined by:
purpose and character of the use
the nature of work being used
the amount of work used
the effect of the use on the value of the original in other words, if you satirize someone's content
you can be sued for adversely effecting its value in other words, this is a way to censor undesirable opinions long time ago content dynamics alternatives questions? thank you in this lecture copyright history current situation content dynamics creative commons in a galaxy far far away there was no copyright before copyright the notion of property related
only to scarce resources land anyone could freely copy, modify,

The books will be in the public domain only in 2043... i.e. free of copyright scarcity = value there is no scarcity inherent in digital data and no cost to copying it in fact, every digital operation
involves copying copyright creates artificial scarcity control over access and modes of use Digital Rights Management control over access to content: when, where, how licencing, encryption, spyware
invasive software: SecuROM
authentication enforcing the way you interact with informaiton digital enclosure extends control over all primary and derivative content DMCA Digital Millenium Copyright Act makes circumventing DRM a criminal offence if this sounds abstract to you, imagine if Microsoft controlled what you can write in Word, and claimed ownership over it Lawrence Lessig http://us.blizzard.com/en-us/company/legal/wow_tou.html Blizzard WoW EULA EULA End User Licence Agreement http://www.rockstargames.com/eula Rockstar Games EULA binding legal contract
