Copyright again

I agree 110% that all creativity is a remix! I say this even with writing when doing my reports. I know plagiarism is different than copyright law but there are some basic concepts shared. How many times can a subject be written, videoed, sang, painted, etc. before someone ends up copying some part of what another person already did? Think about it. If I wanted to write, for example, a story about a princess that was completely original; she couldn't live in a castle, marry a prince, have an evil sister, or live happily ever after. Actually I couldn't even write a story about a princess at all. She's already been made up by someone else so even she wouldn't be MY original idea. Scratch that I'll make a painting with flowers in it. Nope, I won't it's been done. See what I mean?! Every idea has at some point in time already been done by another person. If you don't remix things with your own personal touch you will have nothing to do.

  1. I agree completely! I can't imagine something completely new coming out ever. One of my favorite comedians, Rob Paravonian, does a rant about all the modern songs that are based on Pachelbel's Cannon in D.
