About lecture:
Media art often involves the remix of the creativity of others’ media materials. According to the Copyright Law, works—-including multimedia works, once completed, are protected by Copyright Law. Only to obtain authorization from the obligee can users legally use the works. With the Copyright Law and the law enforcement become more and more strict, the cost of the creators legally using others’ works increase higher and higher. The original aim of Copyright Law is to protect innovation, but the extreme protection may become obstacles. This situation urges persons with breadth of vision to start to rethink and the idea of sharing was put forward and spread. Creative Commons is one of them. It reduces legal obstacles and promote the dissemination and creative commons as well as the works by providing a set of standardization of copyright license based on the framework of Copyright Law nowadays. Creative Commons is more an idea of sharing than CC protocol.
