Fair(y) Use – Tale


Here’s an amazing effort by a professor in a university to illustrate what copyright means. The entire movie was narrated by a continuous montage of narrative derived from snippets of Disney’s movie (which perfectly illustrates the principle of fair use as satire). It’s quite refreshing to see this rehash as a retort to the sometimes absurd legal measures taken by copyright owners like Disney! It also shows how money and power corrupts since by using money gained from copyrighted work, a portion of that money was (and still is) used to pay (bribe) our politicians (congress and senate) to continually extend the copyright time limits. The whole intent of limiting this was to spur new ideas and work, however, as with may things, we the people let this happen by re-electing the bribed politicians.
