Copyright: Key Differences Between Derivative and Transformative Appropriation

Duration: 15':51"

Here's an interesting TEDx video, "Copyright and the Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction given by Eric Doeringer, in which he makes the distinction between derivative and transformative appropriation.

Derivative appropriation is rather straightforwardly enough where no significant change is made to the work, where profit is sought from the work as it already exists and where it’s final use evidently impacts the ability of the original creator to profit from their work. This is fairly self-evidently wrong.

The definitions of transformative appropriation are more unclear, but broadly speaking it is appropriation in which the work is changed to some extent."

If you buy a piece of art what can you do with it?

When, by using other people work inside your own are you actually breaking copyright laws?

Lots of interesting real-world examples illustrating issues relating to copyright, artwork ownership, "fair use" and reproducing other people's work in the digital age, explained in less than 16 mins and in simple terms.

Informative. Examples-rich. Useful. 8/10

imagine as visual technology continue to progresses? can copyright be eventually obsolete? as it will be just too complicated, confusing and expensive to deal with? curious.

Pinterest allows its users to create virtual bulletin boards by pinning content from across the web, including photos and recipes.


There’s no doubt that Pinterest has exploded in popularity in recent months.


But with that boom has come concerns for some users about copyright law.

with the increase in mash-up content, the issues of IP such as this would need our attention and commonsense.

I am very aware of the fact that I am using a digital curation site to highlight external resources about images and Copyright and therefore it seems sensible to highlight some of the pitfalls of this approach.  I note that the example does not come out of this too well!

Everything is a Remix episode 4, produced by Kirby Ferguson, a New York-based filmmaker.


"Our system of law doesn't acknowledge the derivative nature of creativity. Instead, ideas are regarded as property, as unique and original lots with distinct boundaries.


But ideas aren't so tidy. They're layered, they’re interwoven, they're tangled."


A must watch video experience.

Tudo é um remix...

As nossas ideias são consideradas, do ponto de vista do Direito, como propriedade, como únicas e com limites bem definidos.

Será isso um MEME? .

( O meme , termo criado por Richard Dawkins é o análogo do gene na genética.  É uma unidade de evolução cultural que pode de alguma forma autopropagar-se. Podem ser ideias, línguas, sons, desenhos, capacidades, valores estéticos e morais, ou qualquer outra coisa que possa ser aprendida e transmitida.)
