Copyright is cool!

I thought that this was interesting. The copyright symbol has been popping up all over the place online, and not in the places you would expect. It seems that that the letter C with a circle around it has become cool enough to grace the IM profiles of many a college student. I display two examples of this below:





I'd love to know what the copyfight people have to say about this. Is all your work for naught? Is copyright *gulp* a FAD!?

I don't know if its a "gulp" FAD, but it is trendy as all get out right now, with mash-ups, mp3s, online video and all that.

I think this is first time many people have thought about copyright because it directly effects them (esp people who make/dj music and movies).

Will people be talking about this issue in 2-3 years like they do now? Only time can tell, but once that DRM hammer comes down, and the analog hole is shut, I have a feeling a lot more people will care...

poor copyright sign. just another piece of evidence that originality is waning (post-modernism). once you have to turn to government-created symbols for industry as a source of decoration, you know something is amiss. and perhaps something is rotten in denmark, too!
