Reading Response Prompt 4

By on

Completely original ideas are hard to come by these days. Creativity has become more and more rare. Those who can't come up with original ideas often look to others to get "inspiration". Even if these people may have the best intentions, they can often unfairly take others ideas and make profit out of it. This is why creators should protect their intellectual property. Their ideas may not feel important all the time but in the right hands and context they can become something great. Unfortunately, getting credit for that greatness can be hard to get.

1. There are many reasons why authors and content creators should protect their intellectual property. Creativity is a crucial part of society. It is important to work together and collaborate with others for the advancement of society, but living in a world where everyone was free to copy the work of others would never work. Authors, artists, and really most Americans work hard at some point in life to create documents, books, music, inventions, websites, movies, photography, and much more original content.

Intellectual Property

By on

Authors and content creators should protect their property because their work is their idea and if another person gets credit for an original idea, that would be unfair to the original author or creator. Copyright laws used to only last 14 years, but now in some cases, the laws can last for over a hundred years(in the case of companies), or the author's lifetime plus seventy years. This could prevent the fair use of intellectual property by imposing regulations that are too strict and don’t allow other authors to use the material.

Intellectual property protection and copyrights are important because ideas often translate into a person's means of living. Capitalist society can't survive unless the individual has protection over their ideas.

Copyright is more important today than it has ever been before. Technology has come a long way from the past, giving everyone so many resources and different areas to pull research from. There is a downfall though, being that it has become easier to steal people's ideas, images, music, content, etc... Several ways that you can make sure that you cite the work of others ethically is to ask permission from the copyright owner, if granted, acknowledge their work and give thanks, or provide a works cited list.
