Benjamin Kaplan - Fixing Copyright
1976 Copyright Act is at the heart of the debate
3 key trends that need observation :
1. Copyight la is eoig ieasigly eleat to itizes daily ights
2. Growing relevance has suddenly heightened public conscious over the issue
3. The aoe to fats hae highlighted the diffeee /t opyight la ad todays opyight

Now relevant to everyone who downloads content online

1. Technology
2. Entertainment and media
Software has created a new sector for copyright law to organize

Ip content has become raw materials for consumers; it blurs teh line between consumers and
producers
Copyright Consciousness
This new widespread creation and distribution of copyrighted materials has reached a public sense of
consciousness
