A compelling video on What television aka OLD media has to do with art heists, JFK and Andy Warhol…..”
During this time of debate in internet freedom and #sopa this idea hardly seems important and yet, all creativity stems from the Artists of our culture and as you can see all art and ideas can be manipulated by money and power. 
In the age of reproduction, who profits? In the electronic age —when a new medium like social media comes along, who is allowed to share? Who controls ideas? How does that happen? It used to be through old media there was total control of ideas…now with social media it is hard to do —unless of course governments begin to put laws into place – making the sharing of any content a crime!
