Copyright and You

I've stumbled across this great (long) video about the history of copyright and how it affects us in today world. This is well worth a watch because it explains how we've gotten into this ridiculous part in history where copyright can be extended to infinity but still screw over the copyright holders.

Really all copyright does is help the publishers (think big corporations like Disney etc.) make money and screw over the actual creator of the material.


Tell me what you think!

  5. It seems if you have enough money you can use any law to your advantage to screw over the little guy.
