This week we learned about the copyright law. I do believe that we need the copyright law because you would be stealing someone else’s hard work and passing it off as your own. I know if i worked hard on something, such as a movie, I would want all the credit to go to me and the creators of the movie. Copyright should last for forever. If it’s your idea than it is yours and no one else’s. I believe that remixing is along the lines of plagiarism unless you are completely changing the way you are saying something. Or unless you give the person credit to the quote.
