There seems to be a number of people just as confused as I am about this issue. These two blog posts by Sky and Amanda helped to me clarify some questions I had. Check them out for some links to great resources as well.
But what I can’t help but wonder in this, is why is copyright such a complex issues with so many different variables, and does it actually work effectively? To me it seems to only make the rich people richer. But I suppose as Hank stated in the vlogbrothers video above, its not that the system is the best system and the fairest system, its that it is the only one that conceivably words, and works semi-effectively. Still I remain unconvinced.
What are your thoughts on this issue? Are our copyright laws truly effective? Yay or nay.
Happy studying everyone!
Ps. If you are like me and still a little confused about the whole copyright concept, check out this video. It’s explicitly about Australian copyright law and explains how our copyright laws work and function.
