This will educate you and open your eyes....it is one of the cheapest but innovative version of the story of copyright culture which has grown out of control. Originally intended to protect the artist this law is now being used to keep the pockets lined of fat multinational conglomerate companies. Whilst criminalising alot of children, the law has failed to respond to changes in technology such as the internet which has allowed for new forms of creativity which have made the old laws insubstatial.
It recognises a shift from when the laws were created with a balance to protect businesses but also the people.
Laws that protect the interest of large businesses have been pushed into evolution by pressure from these firms, but those to protect the people are not. And remain unchanged and therfore unequipped to protect those it was originally created to protect. Where does this leave us?
