Copyright Law vs. Art As A Shared Experience

Mike Masnick of Techdirt writes," ...While people sit back and claim that remixing is "stealing"
or "lazy" or "not art" at all, that's totally missing the point. Art is
not about just the creator.
Without the shared experience, it's a lot
less valuable - and what we've done with copyright laws is make it
that much more difficult to share that experience
through our own eyes
and our own cultural views. And if you don't see the shame in that,
then you're missing a lot."

This clip from the documentary "Copyright Criminals" illustrates the point beautifully.
