TED Talks Larry Lessig: How creativity is being strangled by the law



Colbert Report - Andrew Keen


What is Creative Commons about at Robin Good's News (November 24, 2006)
"Creative Commons licensing allows anyone to facilitate easier re-distribution and re-use of your creative work, without forcing you to give up your ownership rights to it. The strength of this approach is that it allows even those that are still unknown and having no access to mainstream media distribution channels to let their work be taken up and exposed by others based on its own merits and not only on those of the financial revenue that this will bring. A tremendous victory for human culture and the opportunity it gives to us to know, learn and collaborate with each other."

"I'm convinced we will not solve the IP related issues until these "corruption" related issues are resolved. So I hope at least some of you will follow to this new set of questions," says Lessig.

Letter from Documentary Canadian Filmmakers to Canadian government that is currently considering amendments to the Copyright Act. (December, 5, 2006) DOC
"Canadian documentary filmmakers are increasingly dissatisfied with copyright law. An internal DOC survey, titled Censorship by Copyright (a copy of which we enclose), suggests that 85% of Canadian documentary filmmakers find copyright laws more
harmful to them than beneficial. The same survey noted that 82% of documentary filmmakers feel that copyright laws actually discourage them from making documentary films rather than encouraging them.
In our view, copyright is not functioning properly. It is not facilitating the operation of the market for documentary films. Instead, it is killing that market."
