Copyright is the exclusive legal right, given to an originator print, publish, perform, film, or record literary, artistic, or musical material, and to authorize others to do the same.  Fair use is a legal defensive position; the concept that brief excerpts of copyright material may, under certain circumstances, be quoted directly for purposes such as criticism, news reporting, teaching, and research, without the need for permission from or payment to the copyright holder. While watching Larry Lessig: Laws that choke creativity, He explained in one part about UGC (User Generated Content). “User generated content spreading in businesses in extraordinary valuable ways like these celebrating amateur culture by which I don’t mean amateurish culture, I mean culture where people produce for the love of what they’re doing and not for the money. I mean culture that your kids are producing all the time for when you think would Sousa romanticized in the young people together singing the songs are day of the old songs should recognize. What your kids are doing right now.

It caught my attention because I use to make AMVs in Junior High and made up to 50 AMVs on youtube and it is true, I expressed who I am when I created AMVs using windows movie maker and used clips of parts of animes and adding my type of music. It expressed who I am.
