We have had to learn about copyright issues, so we were given some examples and had to write a post about it. Case study 1 was about George Harrison's hit "My Sweet Lord" and the hit song by "The Chiffons", "He's So Fine". He was found guilty of Subconsiously approriating the music. The 2 songs melody probably sounds somewhat alike but I am not an expert and am probably tone deaf so I guess it sounds similar, he was found guilty so the experts thought he did. Case study 2 was about the Chair that artist Lebbeus Woods drew back in 1987 which was used by Universal Studios in the film 12 Monkeys. They were found guilty and admitted to using it and had to go and edit it out but Lebbeus Woods said they didnt have to as long as they paid him for the copyright, which I assume they did. The 3rd case study was Keir Smith's movie "Oh so criminal" which used pirated material downloaded from the internet and edited to create this short movie about "The Fair Use and other Copyright Exceptions". He made this movie instead of writing to the government. Because I am new to this I am not sure if it should be allowed or not, I grew up in an age where computers and the internet didnt exist, or they did but the general public didnt have access to them. I am not sure if I would like my stuff plastered all over the internet for anybody to use as and how they liked. I guess I will have to do some more thinking on the subject. I am not sure if I like the idea of to much of myself being on the internet for anybody to see.
