Legal Strangulation

Copyright is the exclusive legal right, given to an originator to print, publish, perform, film, or record literary, artistic, or musical material, and also give  authorization for others to do the same. Copyright is needed to protect the creator’s work. It provides them with the legal rights to their work and prevents others from using or stealing without their permission. After watching the video Lessig’s TED talk  How creativity is being strangled by the law the part that stuck out to me the most is in the beginning when he told the story of John Philip Sousa and the talking machine. he basically believed that these machines  ruin  artistic development. I like this because I feel that with development over the years of technology and social media the face to face contact we experienced when younger no longer exists. it leaves no room for quality time or things like story telling or play time which to me is a part of growing up with a healthy imagination or childhood
