cut and paste
specific text influential/ abstract concept
inspiration from idea
recycled ideas
see something then change it Fair use= freedom to think, use and argue The term "Fair use" means that one has the freedom to think about, use, and argue points taken from copyrighted materials to create something dubbed "original." From the Navas article, define the two methods of recycling: Material sampling
and cultural citation. Give at least one example of each of these concepts
in your life. Question 1 Material Sampling Examples: research papers

information Thoughts? C C CopyRIGHT CopyLEFT Question 3 Describe the “CopyRIGHT” vs the “CopyLEFT” based on the documentary Remix Manifesto. Do you think that intellectual property should be able to be copyrighted? Explain why or why not using an example from your own experience. Question 4 How would Navas, Gunkel, and Gaylor each define an “author”. How does each author conceptualize the present and future of an “author”? Which definition do you most associate with and why? What do you think the future will look like in terms of control of intellectual property? Question 5 The video Remix Manifesto defines a concept called “Fair Use”.

Define “Fair Use” only by re-mixing, mashing up, and building upon the definition in the response before yours. Then, reflect on this process. Navas An author is a creator of a work who holds all rights to that work. The work must cite ideas that are not the author's own. Gunkel Authorship is a collaborative effort and anyone involved in the creation of the work is considered an author. Gaylor An author combines parts of the already existing works to create something entirely new and original. 2 1 6 4 10 1. Fair use is the freedom to create new material by mashing up, remixing, enhancing, or improving copyrighted material in order to promote a point, state an opinion, or simply express oneself using the material in a way that is different from the original, copyrighted material. #6 Fair use is defined as the legal freedom to use any copyrighted material in order to critically analyze ideas or to argue a point so long as it does not impair the original material that is being used. An example from the video shows that copyrighted material is used in order to argue that idea that mashing up, remixing, and improving different material that has already been copyrighted has the potential to be an orignal work that is the result of a collaboration of different ideas that allows for creativity to flourish. .13 Final Describe this experience. Easy, fun, annoying, all of the above? Let's talk about it! YES! Well kind of... its a fine line. Want credit for
own work What about this? "Let Me Reload You"- John McLaughlin CopyRIGHT: Individuals and corporations that believe that intellectual property is owned solely by a single entity. CopyLEFT:
People who believe that intellectual property should be in the public domain
