Double click anywhere & add an idea Intellectual Property Dapo Fagbenle Comm Ethics Agenda What is Intellectual Property? What is Intellectual Property? Intellectual property (IP) refers to creations of the mind: Inventions Literary & artistic works Symbols & names Images & designs Videos Two Categorties Industrial Property inventions (patents), trademarks, industrial designs, and geographic indications of source Copyright literary and artistic works such as novels, poems and plays, films, musical works, artistic works such as drawings, paintings, photographs and sculptures, and architectural designs Rights related to copyright include those of performing artists in their performances, producers of phonograms in their recordings, and those of broadcasters in their radio and television programs anti-piracy ad Criminal check pop quiz! (Have you ever?) Issues and Case STUDIES Digital Economy Bill Google Images Youtube Mixtapes piracy spoof piracy spoof 2 Community Broadcasting Have you ever? Used a google image without permission? Downloaded a copyright song without paying for it? Downloaded a movie without paying for it? Made a copy of an audio CD for a friend? Emailed mp3 tracks? Bought or borrowed a dvd and copied it to a blank dvd? Bought an illegal copy of a film from the street? Obtained the serial number to software that you didn't purchase? Google Images Dapo has a presentation on intellectual property for a comm ethics class. He requires some images to make his presentation more interesting. He can take some pictures himself but that would be rather time consuming. He does a google search for the images he wants, and takes some copyrighted ones to use.

He prints outs the images on a handout for every member of the class to see.

Is this unethical? Digital Economy Bill The United Kingdom recently passed the DE Bill. The Bill implements aspects of Government policy on digital media set out in the ‘Digital Britain’ White Paper published in June 2009. Under the bill, the government has the authority to temporarily suspend Internet connections for repeat infringers of copyright following warnings from their ISP. They can fine people up to £50,000 if they make, deal, use, or infringe illicit recordings and articles.

Open wifi, including those from businesses and universities will also be banned. This would leave many organisations open to the same penalties for copyright infringement as individual subscribers.

Is this an invasion of privacy?
Is the UK government being too strict?
Or are these good methods to stop piracy? The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) is a United States copyright law that implements two 1996 treaties of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). It criminalizes production and dissemination of technology, devices, or services intended to circumvent measures (commonly known as digital rights management or DRM) that control access to copyrighted works. Community
Broadcasting Susie wants to have a barbeque in a park and
invite her numerous friends and family members that number up to 75 people. She plans on playing music she bought legally, and showing a movie that she also bought legally on a large projector.

Because it is not in her home and the amount of people listening and watching is so large, this would be illegal if she did not gain prior consent or permission.

Nobody is receiving any copies, and the only intent is to entertain her crowd. Is this unethical? Youtube An unknown Youtube user copies a dvd and uploads its segments to
the website. You go to Youtube, search for the movie, and watch it in full.

Is this ethical on your part?

Who should be responsible for monitoring this upload?
Movie company? Mixtape A mixtape is a promotional CD that artists
put out as a pre-album teaser for their fans. They contain original songs and other songs where their vocals are recorded on another artists instrumental. These mixtapes are sometimes sold at local stores or online, but they are also usually available as a free download online.

The original beats that belong to other artists that they record on sometimes cost as much as 200,000.

This is a common practice, and producers, artists, or dj's complain as everyone engages in it.

Whether the mixtapes are sold or are free, they still give the artist promotion.

Is this ethical?
Should the artists that paid for the instrumental stop other artists from using their work? THE END
