Copyright: Key Differences Between Derivative and Transformative Appropriation

Duration: 15':51"

Robin Good's insight:

Here's an interesting TEDx video, "Copyright and the Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction given by Eric Doeringer, in which he makes the distinction between derivative and transformative appropriation.

Derivative appropriation is rather straightforwardly enough where no significant change is made to the work, where profit is sought from the work as it already exists and where it’s final use evidently impacts the ability of the original creator to profit from their work. This is fairly self-evidently wrong.

The definitions of transformative appropriation are more unclear, but broadly speaking it is appropriation in which the work is changed to some extent."

If you buy a piece of art what can you do with it?

When, by using other people work inside your own are you actually breaking copyright laws?

Lots of interesting real-world examples illustrating issues relating to copyright, artwork ownership, "fair use" and reproducing other people's work in the digital age, explained in less than 16 mins and in simple terms.

Informative. Examples-rich. Useful. 8/10

imagine as visual technology continue to progresses? can copyright be eventually obsolete? as it will be just too complicated, confusing and expensive to deal with? curious.

Absoluut mee eens: heel goed dit onderscheid: geïnspireerd zijn, voortbouwen op, verbeteren van, aanpassen van etc. het werk van anderen is iets heel anders dan gewoon alleen maar kopiëren en er vervolgens geld aan verdienen ten koste van de oorspronkelijke maker! Dit rigide verbieden werkt verstarring in de hand en is dus verwerpelijk. Wetgevers!: hier is werk aan de winkel!!!

Nog wel iets om over na te denken: ALS dit vervolgens veel geld oplevert, hoe gedenk je dan de oorspronkelijke maker, zeker als deze in armoede verkeert?

En erfgenamen: moeten zij voluit kunnen baden in de rijkdom van hun voorouders?
