The one that narrates the video is Brad Holland… yes, THE Brad Holland, a famous american illustrator renamed several times in magazines as Rolling Stones, The New York Times, TIME, etc.
Yes, tomorrow the debate over this law wil give private corps the rights for your works.
- "Copyright is most definitely not a human right, it is a privilege / @BeerBaron " Do you even hear yourself ?
Copyright is a inherent right, if you create something then is YOUR idea. period… Is that simple and logic as that.
With this new law you will have to pay private register corps by giving them everything, including metadata as your clients for example… so, if they have your ideas and your clients, why would they need you ?
Another thing is that this new law allows plagiarism. Any work with a bit of desaturation, resize, color change, etc will be consider a new work.
So it will be much easier for them to steal your works.
And in order to reclaim them you will have to pay THEM again thousands of dollars to start an “investigation” that will conclude in nothing.
" Orphan Works " seriously ??
Don’t you think that with today’s internet and technology you can just google a work to find the author ?
Yes, I support Creative Commons and Fair Use… but they are just fine with the current law system, we don’t need private regulations.
Worse part is, if this gets aproved tomorrow in USA… sooner or later it will spread like a virus over the rest world.
