There are numerous reasons why I think it is necessary for authors and creators to protect their intellectual property. The number one reason is obviously to prevent others from stealing their work. This issue is especially close to me as a graphic designer. I hope to one day build a career around content that I create and knowing how much time and effort that can go into creating something, I can only imagine how frustrating it would be to see someone get credit for your creation.

Intellectual Property and Copyright

I think it's very important that authors and content creators protect their intellectual property. There are many reasons for this, but a very basic reason that we can go to is just the ability to monetize their intellectual property. If someone goes about and claims work you've done as their own, this limits the ability for you to market your work. Monetizing your intellectual property isn't just the only reason to protect it, having your work be stolen also means that your potential audience will be stolen and your growth and recognition will be limited.

It is important for content creators to protect their intellectual property. If someone can create a copycat product that is a lot like the original and the original is not copyrighted the person who stole the idea can profit off of the new product. This would also cause the creator to lose money do to competition. The current length of a copyright for written work is the author's lifetime plus seventy years. However, the copyright protections can be too strict.

I think it is important that authors and content creators protect their intellectual property to keep others from taking credit for things that are not theirs. As technology advances it becomes easier and easier to acquire and “steal” other peoples work. As mentioned in the video, it also goes back to the money aspect as well. Other people should not be able to make money on other peoples work, and also people shouldn’t lose money from their work because of people ignoring copyrights.

It is very important to protect the work of oneself. Everyone who has ever worked on a group project has had a group member that does not pull their own weight. For whatever excuse it is still aggravating that they receive the same grade in the project as if they had done the whole thing. While copyright is not the issue when it comes to group-work it still gets across the point of using other people's work as your own. Copyright is also important to because it protects branding.

In this new technology age, it has become much more difficult and important to protect a writer’s intellectual property than ever before. The right to own new property has transitioned from inventions and ideas to writing and slogans. It may not seem the same, but Thomas Edison’s patent on the light bulb has the same intention as Nike’s trademark on “Just Do It”. The two are one in the same because they are intellectual property of their owner. In the United States, there are four main ways to protect original information; three of them are by law.
