  4. 4. What if there was No Copyright… <ul><li>The main motive for creative endeavors (money) disappears. If authors can’t make a living writing, most will not write. If a record company can’t profit from a band, they will sign fewer bands and cut loose the money losers. </li></ul><ul><li>If copyright exists but can’t be enforced, the above still happens eventually. The end result is less creative content and hard to pirate distribution methods become preferred like print and closed databases. </li></ul>

  8. 8. Copyright is Automatic <ul><li>It is not necessary to include a copyright notice. (©, 2003). However, it is a good idea to do so due to ignorance. </li></ul><ul><li>The copyright is in force when the work is “fixed” which includes saving to disk or writing it on paper. </li></ul>

  10. 10. MP3 Files <ul><li>And of course, the widespread piracy of music and movies has resulted in a crackdown by the respective industries. </li></ul><ul><li>The whole MP3 issue (and the bad attitudes which consumers have towards copyright) has convinced many publishers to distribute content in copy protected or non-computerized forms. Print is not dying…it is making a comeback. </li></ul>
