Embrace the Remix

Kirby Ferguson is known for his web series “Everything Is A Remix” (check it out here and there). In this TED talk he explains the idea of the trychotomy of “copy – transform – combine” being the basic element of creativity –  a basic element that he does not see represented in copyright and patent laws. They run counter to this notion building on the creative work of others by using the analogy of property.
