This week , we do the individual presentation in the tutorial.
For our group, the copyright issue, we get several points below:
1. User generated content (UGC)
2. Traiditional model and copyright culture/ free culture
3. International context
4. Economy, economic rights
Particularly, we will take two typical countries in eastern and western, China and United States, to make a comparison and contrast in terms of the international context, and also concentrate on the moral and economic rights behind copyright laws/regulation/situation.
And here may be a sort of doubt, which is concerned with the “platform” in the UGC. Suppose that the audience/people get their own platforms, then it seems that every user may break the (online) copyright laws/regulation…
Individually, mine is looking at the third section, International context.
- Concentrate on the main differences laying between China and U.S according to the background culture and attitude of copyright and ownership.
- Explore the potential relationship among innovitive and creative new technology, Internet and online copyright regulation.
- Touch a little on the traditional copyright law, i.e. traditional press control and something like that.
Therefore, the only problem is a little bit difficult for me to give a summary to the each information (academic articles+e-journal/blog+wikipedia), then seperating them into different files and sections.
However, i get very nice group members, we set up our Dropbox and Facebook discussion page, so that we can share a range of information that we want to, being a kind of time-savings. And we may also exchange our ideas and viewpoints. Anyway, our group is really awesome because of them.
