Stories were just stories.. passed down from generation to generation. No one owned them, they did not belong to anyone. They were just stories. Now, everything is owned by someone. Even the sound of birds chirping, and cats purring is copyrighted. The things that they do by nature is owned by someone else. What if one day someone gains the control to do that to us? To do something as crazy as copyright our DNA? the very thing that creates us… If our existence was owned by someone else.
Living in our current media content situation is hard enough as a user-produser, and would be even harder if it was taken a step farther and directed towards our nature, instead of our ideas. Having someone own our creativity is one issue, having someone own us, is something even more terrifying.
