Do We Need a Copyright Symbol for Sharing?


We have invented new languages – called computer languages that now affect every aspect of our lives and communications — but we still use only a couple of symbols to acknowledge the breadth of our creative culture, which, thanks to the new langauges of computers – its code – we now have the ablity to curate and “share” text, images, videos etc. Content curator, Maria Popava is proposing that we develop some new symbols to explain where we got the latest cool image, text or video from in order to credit the author and not end up in jail. This Makes sense to me! What about you?
