Copyright, Piracy, The Evolution OfInternetIntroAchtergrond, n.a.v.: http://goo.gl/WB0Bo TED: Clay Shirky: Why SOPA is a bad idea: a. opinion media companiesTimeline: hoe was alles, welke wetten werden er gehandhaafd b. opinion artistssnel richting recente zaken; het is namelijk waar we het over gaan hebben in de presentatie en we moeten snel [ik vind dit erg moeilijk; een paar google queries leveren op dat er wat bewegingen zijnzijn met tijd. van schrijvers tegen piracy, en dat er een paar blogposts zijn over hoe erg het wel niet is,- Copyright Renewal Act of 1992 maar nergens staat of het wat meer of minder te lijden heeft dan de muziek/filmindustrie]- Uruguay Round Agreements Act (URAA) of 1994 c. opinion pirates- Copyright Term Extension Act of 1998 (herzien: Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 ) 1. A violation of copyright is “piracy”. a. opinion John DoeVervolgens: Copyright is like you buy a product, but instead of using it just for yourself, you copy it.Die laatste wet staat nog steeds: “To meet the treaty requirements, protections were extended to architecture This way, the product originally intend for one person gets to more than one person,(where previously only building plans were protected from copying, not buildings, though currently the law makes violating copyright. But piracy is from my point of view deviated from the classical piratesexception for reproduction of buildings in photographs or paintings if they are ordinarily visible from a public such as in the movie Pirates of the Caribbean. These pirates steal stuff and keep it forplace), and certain moral rights of visual artists.” themselves; there is no mean of copying treasures. Piracy is by this definition stealingMaar is deze wet nog wel te handhaven? Hij stamt van 1998 af, toen het internet pas enkele jaren particulier content and making profit out of it, but it is not copying. A violation of copyright is it as well,gebruikt werd, en het linken naar, kopieren en veranderen van naar elkaars content ontstond en exponentiëel because when you steal something, it leaves the rightful owner and get ito the hands of angroeide -> zijn deze wetten nog adequaat? unrightful owner. So in short, the answer is ‘yes’, because stealing results in a loss of the rightful owner (who paid for it)Partijen moeten voorgesteld worden: b. opinion media companiesA. John Doe Onderscheid maken tussen experts en non-experts? Of bij elk statement (te) onwetend overkomen, c. opinion artistswat leidt tot vaak dezelfde antwoorden? (bijv. :”ik wist niet dat er een bill kwam” of “ik blijf gewoon downloaden, d. opinion piratesmij maakt het niet uit“. Verwijzingen noemen lijkt me in dit geval een beetje overbodig, tenzij dus de mening wat can live without violating copyright. 2. Yougenuanceerder is.) a. opinion John DoeDenk hierbij aan wat dat engelse meisje zei mbt “het maakt mij niet uit dat alle bedrijven weten wat ik 24 uur van Well, life is bound to be a bit more expensive if you would pay for absolutely everything,de dag doe”? Dat een beetje? Wordt moeilijk voor je man ;) Mwja inderdaad. Ik kan beter geen onderscheiding but I guess it wouldn’t be impossible. This only if presumed I would use as much contentmaken tussen expert. en non-expert. En ja als onwetende ben je snel de klos =P. Sucks to be me. as I would now. I reality, I guess that I would use ess media that is copyrighted, becauseB. Media Companies, misschien een bekende game-ontwikkelaar zoals Will Wright of een fictief persoon (om in it costs money.

Companies should adapt their business models to new technology usage. 1. Copying a book and lending it to a neighbour is a violation of copyright. a. opinion John Doe a. opinion John Doe This has something to do with the fact that, as a result of illegal downloads, record labels I thought violation of copyright and piracy were the same things? Anyway, I think that and movie making companies make less money as they should without illegal downloads. depends on whether or not the person you lend it to is making some of copied material out But don’t really have an idea about how the business model is implemented by those of it, like taking a photograph or copying certain pages. Self-made notes about the content companies. Maybe they should make the media a lot cheaper, so the people who respect wouldn’t suffice as piracy, would it? I see lending a person your book is also lending your these companies and artists pay less for a digital download instead of hesitating of buying right to use that item to another person: still only one person uses that book at the same a more expensive DVD, BlueRay or CD? This way, the threshold would be a bit lower and time. When multiple persons uses content meant for one person, that counts as copying the costs of making the media available for the people (less material costs and more so it should be penalised. online advertising) would be lower. b. opinion media companies c. opinion artists d. opinion pirates 4. The law will be eventually be able to keep up with the changing methods of copying.. a. opinion John Doe At the moment, laws are really falling behind so in the near future, this keeping up is completely impossible. Maybe, when the development of technology gets on to some sort of plateau of complexity, laws would eventually have time to catch up with it. There are so many possibilities of copying stuff so it is difficult to really make a lineair boundary between non-copying and copying. For example, is copying a page with a copying
Copyright, Piracy, The Evolution Of Internet QUESTIONS NOT ON THE SHEETS / OLD QUESTIONSThe law will be eventually be able to keep up with the changing methods of copying.. 1.

So my gut reaction is to leave it alone and leave the issue to You have to be reasonable; punishing everyone for a violation of copyright is like current patent and copyright law. How is internet piracy any different than other IP piracy. punishing every drunk person on the street on a Friday night; it’s undoable.

When I am forced to do this, I opinion artists: don’t have a choice and have to accept the risk of piracy. I could minimise it by applying 25% of the well-known artists have less income than before, while the other 75% have more. there’s filters on certain social networks, though. In general I just have to be careful, but piracy is a couple of explainations for that: everywhere I guess. - pirates download music from popular artists because it’s shared better. they can save money in b. opinion media companies order to buy less popular music 7 Ways to Prevent Piracy - Juuso, game-developer. - people can discover music for free Microsoft Product Activation Technology - there is a rise in income for concerts -> more interest, probably thanks to communities like pandora SUE THE BASTARDS! and last.fm. c. opinion artists source (see references also) http://torrentfreak.com/why-most-artists-profit-from-piracy/ These Two Bills Are the Best Approach - Chris Dodd, a former U.S. senator who also a valid point: people who “pirate” your work would’ve probably not even have spent money on represented Connecticut from 1981 to 2011, is the C.E.O. and chairman of the Motion your work anyway.

The copyright industry has been justly criticized for abusing the political process in a (source)desperate attempt to maintain its role as a cultural gatekeeper, a business model made obsolete by a digital age The above is moot as we’ve decided not to let the government take part of the discussionof free copies. But the RIAA, MPAA & IFPI deserve our opprobrium for making enormous profits while often connect with the fans -- if you can get them to grant you the money for a cd, they will. true fans will buy your workleaving the very artists it claims to represent *poorer* than they would be as independents. While the public may out of support.have greater access to the few artists deemed sufficiently marketable to gain mass media promotion, fewer and piracy costs a lot of money to stop and it seems better to think of alternatives instead of stopping it.fewer of us are making art and music in our own lives. d. opinion piratesRussias Internet Pirates Against SOPA (source) - “If these bills are adopted, U.S. judges would get the legal right It´s not possible if the software is online.
