What is intellectual property? It is your own ideas and creations, that exist because they originated in your mind. A melody, an idea for a building, a software, a photograph...anything you imagine.
The idea of copyright has changed in a world where it seems possible to get hold of every image or document and make it your own. Please think, THINK, and then write a response, at least two paragraphs, about these ideas:
Creative Commons - would you be willing to give your work away for free, if those sampling your work at least made a link to you or an attribution? Yes or no? Support your reasoning.
Do you think music, photographs, stories, etc. found on the internet are public property?
Is there a relationship between plagarism (taking someone's words or works and pretending they're your own) and downloading free music?
I think that intellectual properties are people's own ideas that they thought of themself. It WOULD NOT be okay if somebody took MY work for free. If I worked hard on something, it wouldn't be for someoneto walk on by and be like, " Hey! I think I'll steal this even though somebody probably worked really hard on it." Finding media on the Internet doesn't mean it's public property. I think that plagarism and downloading free music are very similar because they are both stealing. So remember, it is NOT okay to take something without paying for itor leaving credit.

I would not be okay if someone stole my music i worked hard on the music and these people are getting it for free.Also im living on the streets and working at mcdonalds because i cant pay the rent and its the only job i could get.Because people arent paying for my songs.The music, photographs, stories are public property i mean people say what you put on the internet anyone can read so why wouldnt things like this be public property.Yes there is a relationship because people who steal words and are dishonest about it, would also do something like donwload pirated music.
