RSA Animate – Drive: The surprising
truth about what motivates us:


Even as we
can see the inventers and artists are motivated for their work by their ability
to work with it. We shall not expect them to share their work for free. But
they are very proud if they are allowed to live from the income of their
creative work. The main motivation never the less, is the satisfaction of
making whatever they feel too. And even better is if someone appreciate it and
give honour for it.

My father’s
on www is there because my father wanted to share his work with
people, not to store it a way in a rarely visited private gallery.

I have
grown up with a father who were one
artist, in painting and graphic art. He studied to that for 7 years, I think it is
natural to charge when ever somone want to use some of his production.

Ideas is always
property of the one that have thought them. But when you give your idea to someone
else, they automatically translate the idea to fit to their own set of concepts
and associations. Who is the owner of the idea then? And where did the idea
come from in the first place? We have to think of what comes out of one idea,
who does the make out of one idea. The make out is the intellectual work, the one
that did the make out have the rights to claim any user a fee.

intellectual work are published on www, we are eager to make use of it, but are

The video discuss manny facets of rights to intellectual work, but main focus is on visual work . YouTube
substances is “what some call: User generated content “ It is 2,0 web! YouTube
only provide the structure, and therefore have no responsibility for the User
content. We are the users, and by uploading we take the responsibility for any
third parts interest in the uploaded material. But if we are the offended part
there are tools in YouTube to complain. Anny complain will be forwarded, to the
user who have responsibility for publishing the offensive material. This user will
then be free to chose either to take the media down or to face a law suit. If both
parts are resourceful they may run the law suit. But if the publisher is a “consumer
user” who have put together some creative remix art. They will probably not get
sued, because their publishing is categorized as “fair use”, and there would neither
be any fortune to sue after.
