The ethics of copying and it's legalities occupy a significant amount of our discourse.

Where does monkey see, monkey do cross over into actionable infringement?

Let's say you write up an item and give it to a publisher. Then someone askes to take your practice videos and notes and publish those elsewhere. Then the first publisher cries foul. Is there an implicit non-compete in signing over copyright to a work?


If you sign over a copyright you don't own it. If you use the work that was copyrighted you have to pay a royalty. Unless you negotitated the right to continue using the Copyrighted work. This is't rocket surgery

? Not about using that text/article/image. Not reusing that journal article writeup.

That's why the example of an artwork compared to a documentary about the studio and materials.

Rocket Surgery... I like that one Smile

Jon, does the publisher have a claim to the computer the article was written on as well?

Is Einstein enjoined from speaking of relativity?

Non-starter here. No idea what argument you are offering.

That is completely false and was already covered in the last copyright thread.

Ownership of a copyright is distinct from ownership of any material object. If Jonathan gives you the right to copy his practice tape, all you get it the right to copy it - you don't get any other property rights to it.

Here is the actual US Code of Laws:

https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/17/202



This was changed with the US Copyright Act; the old law was "in stark contrast to the present because unless specifically reserved, artists were presumed to transfer common law literary property rights when they sold their material object/creation" - quoted from:

http://copyright.uslegal.com/copyright-o......-object/



So please update your brain with the new information please so we can all stop believing this bull****. Thanks!
