Why is this a problem?
Problem 1

Society
has
to
ask
permission
to
criFcize
culture

  and
therefore
has
fewer
available
works.

"Why
should
we
have
to
ask
culture


       to
let
us
criFque
it?"


                 Brett Gaylor
Problem 2

InnovaFon,
renovaFon,
and
expression


            are
suppressed.

“Culture
builds
from
the
past.”

            Brett Gaylor
The
people
who
hold
copyrights
used
someone

          else's
work

  10. 10. “Culture

 Brett Gaylor
  11. 11. The
people
who
hold
copyrights
used
someone
 else's
work
before,
but
they

 beat
everyone
else
to
make
it
law,

 so
no
one
else
can
do
what
they
did.


  12. 12. "One
consequence
of
this
networking
of
culture
 is
in
fact
the
abandonment
of
the
ideal
high
 culture
as
a
unifying
force."

 Jay David Bolter However…

  13. 13. In
Brazil,
copyright
laws
are
inconsequenFal
and
 the
culture
builds
upon
older
works
found
 through
the
advanced
networks,
bringing
this
 society
together
through
this
higher
new
 purpose
for
culture
and
art.

  14. 14. The Confusion Plagiarism
can
be
connected
with
copyright,
 when
it
is
something
en5rely
different.

  15. 15. “ Plagiarism
is
the
use
or
reuse
of
 words
or
ideas
without
acknowledgement.”

  16. 16. Truth 1 Plagiarism
stunts
crea5vity
and
expression
in
a
 society
by
allowing
people
to
copy
verbaFm
 instead
of
creaFng
or
modifying
another
work
 for
a
new
meaning.

  17. 17. “Art
is
either
plagiarism
or
revoluFon.”
 Paul Gauguin
  18. 18. Truth 2 Plagiarism
is
not
bad
because
it
involves
 copyright
infringement,
but
because
it
is
a
lie.

  19. 19. So what? Society
should
be
careful
not
to
plagiarize
and
 become
unable
to
think
for
themselves,
but
 not
fall
into
the
bondage
of
copyright
laws
and
 be
unable
to
think
at
all.

  20. 20. “Even
in
the
world
of
copyright,
we
have
a
right
 to
repeat
people’s
words
in
order

 to
hold
them
accountable,
bring
them
into
 dialogue,
or
use
them
as
a
springboard.”
