In the section Crossovers Are Growing goes into examples on creative common works also moving into a commercial economy. I found this to be similar to Girl Talk. Girl Talk is free to the public, not only to download the music but also to remix. This is similar to the movie because through Girl Talks freedom to use his music he has also entered a commercial economy by touring and becoming a well know remix artist. “But the licenses also helped them cross over to a commercial economy.” (Lessig pg. 228). I feel as if this also helped Girl Talk.
“An extraordinary range of diverse culture could be accessible, cheaply, anytime and anywhere.” (Lessig pg. 252). With RW people use past culture to create new culture. With technology we are able to easily find older culture and create new. Just like Girl Talk does. He uses his computer and a range of programs to create totally new music and then puts it on the Internet for anyone to download at anytime. That is to say if they have Internet access.
“Copyright law must be changed. Changed, not abolished.” (Lessig pg. 253). Throught the entire movie I couldn’t help but this this. That copyright laws shouldn’t be a worry for parents or artist such as Girl Talk. At a certain point what Girl Talk and other artist like Girl Talk creates is not stealing but creating. It does not try to be the original and there for should not be accounted as such. Copyright laws need to be altered to properly protect the people and their artwork. Not bring worry about being sued for expression ones self.
