Definition of COPYRIGHT
The readings and videos this week were very enlightening. As a Marketing Director for a local firm, we are continually confronted with copyright issues for our clients in our designs and in regards to others using their works, images, logos, etc.
The videos and discussions we viewed were very interesting. I did enjoy the documentary “Good Copy/Bad Copy” in the sampling of music in rap music and remember clearly the Vanilla Ice controversy in regards to him sampling the Under Pressure rift created by David Bowe and Freddie Mercury. I recall contemplating at that time what the issue was and now have a better understanding how sampling can be seen as stealing, which is illegal.
The 10 Myths of Copyrights

Reviewing the “10 Myths of Copyrights” was a great refresher course and I look forward to delving more into this subject. As the internet continues to grow, I think policing copyright issues will become stronger and more people will take heed to get copyright approval to use materials online to avoid the issues related to using copyrighted material. I also feel that more people will create more things in a creative commons atmosphere to help each other contribute to their artist abilities.
