Copyright and Ethics In Digital Age Copyright and Ethics In Digital Age Presentation Transcript

  • Copyright and Ethics In The Digital Age
    • COM495 Kathy E. Gill
  • Framing Web 2.0 Technologies
    • Technologies change how we interact with (digital) cultural objects.
    • We are no longer merely a consumer; we can also be a producer.
  • This is a shift from the late 20th century model:
  •  
  • In Our Digital World, It Is Easier to Borrow, Copy, Manipulate
  • This means it is technically easier to express ourselves in new, creative ways.
  • The Clash
    • Culture as a freely flowing current of ideas and practices runs head first into culture as intellectual property
  •  
  • Ask permission each time Ask permission each use
  • Framing
    • A 10-minute explanation of copyright … using words from one of the largest (and most aggressive) copyright owners in the world
  • Terms: Copyright
    • Copyright law protects “creative and expressive works”
      • Automatic (do not have to file, register)
      • Scope: http://copyright.gov/
      • Does not extend to ideas or facts
  • How Long Does It Last?
    • In 1709, copyright lasted 14 years
    • Since 1978 copyright lasts for either the life of the author + 70 years or, in the case of work-for-hire , 95 years from publication or
    • 125 years from creation
  • Controversy
    • Copyright purpose is to “ promote the progress of science and the useful arts ” … and the duration for exclusivity is to be “ limited ” … - US Constitution
  • Terms: Public Domain
      • When the copyright term expires, works revert to public domain.
      • The copyright holder may dedicate works to the public domain; eg, works funded by the US Government.
      • PD works are freely available for use by anyone for anything.
  • some rights reserved no rights reserved all rights reserved
  • attribution non-commercial no derivative works
  • Ethics
    • Value system by which a person determines what is right or wrong
    • For bloggers:
      • Be honest
      • Be transparent
      • Credit others
      • Respect position of opponents
  • Digital technologies enable a "Tinkering culture" -- a "read write rip burn culture"
  • The legal system has not yet caught up with technology.
