BUSINESS LAW

posted by .

At issue in the twenty-first century is the trade-off between the necessity of writers, musicians, artists, and movie studios to profit from their work and the free flow of ideas for the public benefit. Movie (and music) industry participants claim that encryption programs are necessary to prevent piracy. Others, however, including the defendants in cases such as Universal City Studios, Inc. v. Corley, 273 F.3d 429 (2d Cir. 2001), argue that the law should at least allow purchasers of movies, music, and books in digital form to make limited copies for fair use.

    Question 1:
    Which side of this debate is more ethical or supportive?
    Copyright infringement, the tortuous offense, is never OK on my behalf. But the copyright law recognizes exceptions to the generic standard that a copyright holder controls. The Fair Use provisions;with regard to music, is permissible non-granted use,which is known as mechanical and I'm not quiet familiar with the law on any detail.

    Question 2:
    Could it be possible to strike an appropriate balance between the rights of both groups on this issue?
    I think it should be balance.

    The question asks "which ... is more ethical or supportive?" You have not addressed this question, although you have said what you think is not OK. This question is asking for your opinion. What do YOU THINK? What ideas are in your text or course materials? You need to reread those and form your own opinion. When you answer this question, TAKE A STAND and support only that stand. Don't be wishy-washy.

    Question 2:
    Could it be possible to strike an appropriate balance between the rights of both groups on this issue?
    I think it should be balance.
    The question asks "Could it be possible to strike an appropriate balance...?" but you haven't answered that. Simply saying that "it should be balance" (do you mean "balanced?") is not answering the question. Do you think, in reality, it is possible to strike a balance? Once you figure that out, you'll need to EXPLAIN WHY you believe so.
