Copyright Law and Creative Use

I recently read this article about how wedding videographers are getting sued by copyright owners for using songs without proper licensing and gaining popularity via youtube.

From an Artists perspective I can understand some of the strife in wanting to get your due from your music. But also it is not the artists that are suing the other (visual) Artists. It is the machine of the music industry. Which is another great reason to advocate for Creative Commons Licensing.

Goodness.

Traditional copyright does not protect the creators of work as much as it protects the people that hold the copyrights to something.

 

Food for thought.
