Thread: More Powerful Than The Government?

    Check this out.............

    LINK

    They are getting absolutely ridiculous. I'm sick of these people saying we can't share what is rightfully ours in the first place. Sorry, but once i buy a CD, its MINE, not anyone elses, and if i choose to share what i buy with my friends, then what is wrong with that?

    technically you buy the cd but you dont own the music so you can share the physical cd but not the music on it,at least according to the law in the US

    Actually, this is exactly the problem. There is no law defining this. The only thing that is truly "illegal" is copying, and redistribution for profit, without paying royalty rights.

    For instance, lets use Linkin Park's new CD as an example. If I purchase the CD, then play all the tracks backward, and resell it as Pinkin Lark, is there are specific law against that? No. It is assumed that the content is owned by Linkin Park, but this is not clearly defined.

    You are missing the point of the law. The content belongs to that artist, under the copywright statutes, regardless of how it's modified. There are many landmark infringement cases where plagiarism has been found where the music laymen would be hard-pressed to see the resemblance to the protected material. Linkin Park backwards would be a slam dunk.

    Once again, you are missing the point.

    Plagiarism refers to a piece of writing, i.e. print media, not music. Would I be committing plagiarism if I were to sing along with Linkin Park while I heard their song on the radio?

    Sorry, Jibbler, but tis you who needs to do some research.

    Plagarism laws are very much applicable to music also.
    Your singing of a song is completely legal, but sharing Linkin Park&#39;s new CD, whether you bought it or not, is without a doubt in violation of international law.

    Berne Convention, as revised, article 3

    I think that is fairly concise. I&#39;m not a lawyer and I got the general drift.

    Once again, this applies to written work only.

    Plagiarism: a piece of writing that has been copied from someone else and is presented as being your own work

    This also is from websters.com While I don&#39;t consider Websters to be an authority when it comes to law, I do consider them an authority when it comes to defining words.

    I SECOND THE MOTION, RESEARCH OR BEAT IT&#33;

    Sorry if I&#39;m coming off a little harsh, but everyone seems to pass on what they think they know instead of what they can prove thru research with documented sources.
