Fair Use- Lives!

It might be really outdated by now, but not linking to this Youtube video by the Israeli musician  Kutiman would be shameful for one who advocates fair use and borrowing of  pre-existing creative works to create something new! Several of my previous posts have been about loosening copyright law and arguing that these laws are outdated and do not hold much water in today’s digital world.

Enjoy the video as much as I did!!

  4. This really is fascinating! I love debating about “highly warned about” yet “highly (multi)interpretable” laws such as Copyright. The Stanford law professor Larry Lessig who talks about the longstanding “fair use” doctrine, doesn’t cover what happens when you build a new creative work entirely or largely out of snippets of other people’s work. There are so many ways around these Copyright laws, yet so many ways THEY can ground YOU. It’s all about how they are interpreted.
