Hands Off My Creativity
Reviewer maxine

Creativity is a virtue that every man possesses, but only a few value it. There used to be a time when the creative were worshipped. Now those creative minds have become bullies, selfish and possessive. They hardly care about reaching out to the audience they make the content for. They are, more often than not, concerned and occupied with making big bucks for themselves and are always ready to obliterate whoever comes in the way of them and their money. They have influences much higher up the political chain. They buy politicians at ease and impose huge lawsuits for fun. Having said that, there are a lot of creative minds on the web space that do remixing by taking two of more contents and coming up with an entirely new content. This requires skills and hard work. However, the attitude of creators of original content and the law is quite deteriorating of these creative heads. Larry Lessig is one of the leading experts of law who understands this dilemma and shares his opinion rather openly. This TED talk is a must watch for all those creative heads out there.
