Copyright is one of the hottest topics in the News today. The amount of information and examples available from which to construct an essay on Copyright is unbelievable.
Here are some useful resources to start your research on this interesting area.
Rather than address DMCA copyright issues, you might want a more unusual approach to copyright. For example, should a DNA sequence fall under intellectual property?
You could explore the difficulty of registering with the copyright office creations online. With the speed and quantity at which we create digital materials, such websites, tweets, and wall posts, it would be infeasible to pay registration fees each time. What about a fee schedule that included a monthly or quarterly rate?
Of course, a productive angle would be delving into the political or nationalistic motives behind the copyright wars. For example, The entertainment industry of America is supported wholeheartedly by the U.S. government, which is not an ignorant group of old guys. They realize that if the revenue from copyrighted entertainment media is lost through theft, the U.S. economy will take a serious beating. Following through with this angle you could speculate that there might even a shift in the balance of power away from the U.S. The instability that would result could open up a can of worms that might not be able to be put back in. So the political motives are to maintain order, even if you may disagree with the way the order is. Copyright protection equals stability of civilization, so they believe.
