Nina Paley on the making of Sita Sings the Blues

Nina Paley talks on the making of Sita Sings the Blues and how copyright stifles creativity.

When we enclose the commons, we turn what was freely available and abundant, into a scarce commodity.

That is what intellectual property rights and copyright does.

We can easily copy music, films, easily share, thus copyright to make it scarce.

Who owns culture?

Corporate entities that own copyright, are under no obligation to release or publish.
