Does copyright hinder or cultivate creativity?
Copyright is the exclusive and assignable legal right, given to the originator for a fixed number of years, to print, publish, perform, film, or record literary, artistic, or musical material.
Hinder: Copyright hinder with making remix or using some images when necessary. Many people, including us, wants to listen to music or watch movies free by downloading or easily search it up on YouTube. Background music are also needed for people when making slideshows or their original video. However, there are some videos that doesn’t have any sound because of the copyright issue, unfortunately.
Cultivate: Although copyright could be annoying, it is still important for fair use. I think that it isn’t fair for the creators of music and movies that ordinary people to just watch or listen to it anytime without any money. Creators gain profits by people buying their CDs or DVDs; furthermore, including copyrights of the music and movies.
In my opinion, I think copyright still hinder creativity. I want to listen to music or watch movie by free downloading to my ipod or iTunes so that I can easily listen or watch them whenever I want, and it is very handy as well. There might be lots of people who doesn’t have enough money, but are desperate to listen or watch music and movies with quick search. There are many people including me, wants to use any images for school project or anytime necessary, so I feel a little hindered when there is a copyright reminders.
Thus, even though there is fair and unfair in society, I still consider that copyright should be lost as soon as possible, and people liberally can view everything without any laws.
