Copywrong

BY NINA PALEY
@ VOL 14 ON DEC 06, 2013

Nina Paley points out how, people, as permeable information portals, are constantly subjected to anything and everything produced in the world. Due to copyright laws, we often have less say over which ideas enter our heads, than what goes out. The solution, for Nina, is to simply ignore these copyright laws. She declared sovereignty over her own mind a few years ago and will never surrender it again. She encourages everyone to make art, not law.
