Minecraft, derivative works, parodies...
Hugo sends me this amazing song/video made in Minecraft. Of course, that leads to 10 more, 14 more… there are so many!
When you make the tools available to the people, and allow them to create (in this case under the safe harbor of “parody”) wonderful things happen. It
s NOT all about the money, profit, control... Its about imagination, art, creativity, culture. That
s how it happens: copying, re-using, mixing, adjusting, modifying... thats what creativity is really about (or did you think it was about “inventing” and “making unheard of things out of thin air”?).
