Stop Copying Me!?

Yours Sincerely, Sarah

Cat Meme 2

Is this the future of content production on the Internet?

This could become a harsh reality for many ‘prosumers’ due to the strict copyright laws being implemented by legacy media distributors. Basic copyright lasts the duration of the author’s life plus 70 years after his or her death. Companies are going to drastic measures to protect their “property” to ensure that they remain in control of an industry that they have monopolized for so long.

Ultimately, these laws could shut down creativity on the Internet and the global village that now stands could revert to the “read-only” structure that so many amateur creators fear.

Think of all the cat memes we will lose…

Yours sincerely,

Sarah

About Kenneth T.

My blog, My way Welcome to a little piece of my life. Here you will find things concerning my everyday experiences and or my thoughts on everyday happenings. For instance you may find thoughts of my Farmstead, which is as my wife calls it, our Accidental Farming life. Perhaps on a whim, I might just jump on a soap box about what's going on with my crazy family (the immediate one, that is).~You don't need to put a penny in the coin slot for any commentary there~ You may find, new additions to what I call "Hobby-time". Ahh yes, my hobby... I make pinback buttons (some call them badges). Sorry for the shameful plug ;-) *** And then there is the outside the box or "Offtrack" thinking, part of me. Which can be anything else from aliens to the zoology of the Loch Ness monster, but will probably be more mundane as health concerns, for instance, to vaccinate or not. Is the Earth Flat or is it Hollow? Is there a dome? Is any of it real? Do you really want to know? Police brutality and the continuing corruption of established government, Big Business, Big Oil, Big Brother. Can we survive? Should we survive? The coming montrary collapse. There is so much going on, more then we see outside our windows.
