Copyright was something that I knew of and had a simple understanding of until the lecture of BCM112.
So what I got out of it was that copyright is a law that protects an individuals creation and in order to use, remake or share a certain persons creation you have to seek permission first from the original developer of that item.
Then there is fair use where you are able to use a part of someone else’s work without permission or having to purchase the item. This would be things such as educational uses, comedy/parody, criticizing or commenting and news reporting.
What I found really interesting was that with particular games you are not buying the disk or the game itself but you are buying permission to play the game. That somewhat blew my mind!
I am still a bit overwhelmed about all of this information hopefully I will grasp it all relatively soon.
