This week in class we were looking at comparing Creative commons and copyright. Personally i believe that we cannot compare these two things because although they deal with similar things they are vastly different. Its almost like comparing paintbrushes to paint. They seem to be the same thing to a person who looks at them on the surface however they are quite opposite. They are in fact almost opposites completely. because copyright is a restriction and Creative Commons is a free for all.
One similarity between the two however, is that in both situations there is a ‘creator’ – i mean there always is God – but in this sense it refers to art. The creator is essentially the owner of the work, and has rights to the work, so despite the tone with which i opened up this post, they are indeed in a way similar.
