Re: Piracy is Killing
Copyright and IP laws can create some strange incentives that make sharing.. difficult if not illegal. One might think that without copyright ownership, Sandvine wouldn't have capacity problems at all -- because copies of popular content wouldn't be stored multiple times or transmitted as haphazardly. Or if copyright licensing were a bit less opaque with fewer barriers, maybe piracy would go away almost entirely.

Re: Piracy is Killing
@mhhf1ve A lot of museums don't allow photography at all (regardless of flash)  -- as in the case of the Frick Collection. Others restrict it to certain special exhibits, as in the case of the New York Historical Society. The MoMA, though, genreally allows photos and even equipped the device it lends out to visitors to send pictures that can be emailed.

Re: Piracy is Killing
Intellectual Property rights are indeed a strange beast. I vaguely remember a museum that wanted to control what visitors could do with the photos they took of exhibits.

Re: Piracy is Killing
@mhhf1ve yes, but really fascinating that you can own the art itself and still now own the rights to its image.

Re: Piracy is Killing
I wonder how Adam Yauch's will goes along with Star Trek's licensing. I've seen some Star Trek ads that feature a Beastie Boy's song -- and that's advertising. So...

Your NYT link to the copyright of Picasso's works is interesting. It's a bit sad that art has to be tied up in legal battles for the foreseeable future.

Re: Piracy is Killing
@Ariella yes you are right as most of the time it could be a hidden PR move - same way as forgoten celebraties leak compromising photos themself with idea to boost they return to fame... Human nature is dark this days- sad reality...

Re: Piracy is Killing
@mhhf1ve I think the Beastie Boys didn't come off well in that suit. As for the Star Trek usage it is possible that they obtained permission, paid a fee, or that it was not considered commercial because they were not directly promoting a product as in the case of the toy's video. 

 

Copyright get even more complicated, though, when it comes to art in which one person can own the actual art work while another owns the rights to the image. That came up in the question of Picassos appearing in Titanic. See http://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/25/arts/design/artists-rights-society-vaga-and-intellectual-property.html
