Blog 6 – Copyright – Reading Response

Greys “Copyright: F0rever Less One Day” is an informative video on the law on copyright. As explained in the video the law stood up for copyrighting for up to 28years but people felt this wasn’t a long enough time and to assure that no one else can make profit, or receive fame for there ideas they pushed the numbers up. From what I understood in this short video on copyright is that people can make there own spin on a former movie, book, or over all idea, but only with the consent of that original idea maker or the government. The government protects peoples original creations and ideas in a sense with this quote, as stated in the video, “Basically, copyright is a contract between authors and society: if you promise to make more stuff, we promise not to copy it or build on it for 28 years”.
