Hello, world. I’m MacDara Conroy, and this is my blog.

No Copyright Intended

"Remix culture is the new Prohibition, with massive media companies as the lone voices calling for temperance. You can criminalize commonplace activities from law-abiding people, but eventually, something has to give." I half agree with this; remix culture (fan edits, supercuts, etc) is one thing -- and a good thing at that -- but the apparent misapprehension of copyright among young people (that it's just a means of attribution, not of protection of artists' livelihoods) is another matter entirely. #link
