What is copyright infringement? It is a loose term that many seem to be throwing out these days. When you alter an original idea is it your own like a remix to a song. On youtube it nearly impossible to listen to a new song because they all get taken down within seconds of the upload. Songs have to be “pitched” or the tempo has to be increased to not get taken down. Without giving credit where its due cases like Richard Prince or Robin Thicke get blown out of proportion. In my opinion no idea is really original. You just took the time to make it.
And to the big companies scaring the little guys Shame. “Creativity should not be strangled by the law”
