Copyright law is protection of original works of authorship fixed in a tangible medium including literacy, dramatic, musical, artistic and other intellectual works. I believe that the copyright law is needed because It wouldn’t be fair to the author of something to no get credit for someone putting their work into a research paper or essay of some sort. It’s almost like telling someone a really funny joke and then that person uses it and impresses other people with your joke. It just isn’t fair. I think that the copyright law should be issued onto anything for as long as possible because it’s that author or producers work and they should be recognized for it. It’s pretty much considered plagiarism for someone to use someone else work. I believe that remixing is the same thing as plagiarism because they are using intellectual words that are coming from someone else and basically mixed around to sound different. You still need to give the author credit for it.
