About 7 years ago, I stumbled on a great music video, Sita Sings the Blues. If you haven’t seen/heard the video, I urge you to do so. It is available free online or for download from Nina Paley’s website. She is its creator.
Regardless of whether you view the movie, you should listen to Nina Paley’s TED talk “Copyright is Brain Damage.” It is a different perspective on copyright by an artist whose work is copyrightable.
Do you agree with Ms. Paley? If yes, why; if no, why not.
Thanks to The Digital Reader for bringing Ms. Paley’s TED talk to my attention.
