Journal kodiaktau's Journal: Copyright For Dummies

An interesting video was passed to a friend of a friend who subsequently passed it on to me about the original intent and virtues of copyright in America. Not surprisingly the video outlines the original intent of copyright to encourage the creators to bring new content and protect them for a period of time. As the video points out one of the largest instigators of the new rules on time privilege for creators was the Disney Company.

The video is done in a light hearted style that makes understanding copyright easy for the less informed. Please share it with others!
