Week 1 Reading: Copyright and Fair Use

5 06 2013

Great blog Stuart,

Prior to this weeks reading I had many misconceptions about copyright. Copyright rules were like playing Monopoly. Nobody really knows the rules, they were just told the rules by other people and eventually thought that they knew them(I have found that people who learned to play on a computer do know the rules). See these articles on Monopoly rules:

Why you’ve been playing Monopoly WRONG your entire life published 5/29/2013
Actually this is how you play Monopoly published on 6/3/2013
Does anyone know the rules to Monopoly? published on 6/5/2103
The list goes on. Do we see any possible copyright infringement?

The Womb of the Morning by Stuart Greaves


Copyright. Hearing this word has always made me shudder like the hyenas in Lion King when they heard the name Mufasa. For me there always was a bit of a mystique surrounding the word “copyright” that was accompanied with an almost paralyzing trepidation. Well maybe not paralyzing, that would be overstating it a bit. Apprehension might be a better word. However there was, as Byron Hurt indicated in Free Use and Free Speech In Documentary Film, a fear associated with how to properly and legally utilize the work of others. The key to alleviating apprehensions is often demystifying the subject by pursuing understanding. This weeks reading has really done that for me.
