Had it not been for the harming video of Thicke’s and Williams’ deposition I don’t believe the jury would have convicted them. Secondly, in many copyright cases if there is a significant differences between the original item in this case song for the new item no law is broken. Yet, they based the case on a rhythm/feeling of the song. This is extremely base on a person interpretation and opinion of music. With that said, I believe the jury made their decision on emotion and not of actual
One argument from the opposing side would be the music choice throughout the 2013 movie as the soundtrack includes modern music, opposed to choosing music from the time. These supporters believe that the change in music makes the movie seem too current and not time accurate. While I can see their ideas I strongly disagree as the music was focused on the symbols and behind-the scenes meanings behind the actions. For example, when Nick walks into the speakeasy behind the barber shop in the 2013 film version, the song 100$ Bill by Jay-z begins playing. The song was produced specifically for this movie and is a story of the rise of Jay Gatsby if the lyrics are properly interpreted.
Therefore, not discharging all the pent-up resentment could be his way of suggesting that violence is not - and will not - be the solution to anything, neither in a war nor in a song. This hypothesis could also be substantiated by the sound dynamic from minute 2:00 to 2:15 where the heavy guitar distortion makes the electric guitar sound bouncy - psychedelic. These fifteen seconds might be an alternative offered by Hendrix to the violence that could have arisen from his cover song. In particular, these sounds could be a reference to the Hippie counterculture that developed as an anti-war movement during the sixties. The Hippie movement advocated peace, love, and, also, pleasure.
“A boy was born in this world with a heart of gold, but the way of the world made his heart turn cold” this is a quote take from the song by the band “Earth Wind and Fire” which is an excellent metaphor for talking about whether humans are born good or evil, to which one might say they are born good or they are born evil others will say they are neither. This brings up an interesting point, some people argue people are usually born neither as when you are born you have no perceived context of good or evil, and the environment on which you are raised will affect your morals and how you live your life, but some people may bring up the argument that out of all the people born in the world at least a small percentage must be born with evil intentions, this brings up an sizable dilemma that the book “Lord of The Fly’s” can answer. The book seems to allure to the answer to that question being evil as evidenced by the way the tribe changes from the beginning to the end, the changes of the two chiefs throughout the novel, and also even the world we live in today. The two tribes in the book lord of the flies is the main conflict of this book. It also helps us support man being evil.
But then it occurred to be that as my memory is coming back to me was that it was illegal to have the suit manufacture. Sarah Elizabeth Howard writes, “Owning a zoot suit in wartime was not a crime, but it was a crime to manufacture the suit. The War Production Board placed a $10,000 fine on tailors who ignored the restrictions on cloth and material to make them” (Howard 114). In this society wanting to make something unique causes problems, but that doesn’t give them the right to punish us for what we thought wasn’t as harmful at that
Because these downloads tend to take place in the comfort of our own home, the ramifications and moral wrongdoings are not as apparent as stealing something from a store. Downloading music goes against the intention of the internet and presents dangers through others takin advantage of it. The internet was never meant to be used to commit crimes. Because of this sense of comfort, people are more likely to download multiple songs (as was the case with LaHara, Thomas-Rassett and Tenenbaum) and this hurts not just the artists but the crew who produce their music. The three cases discussed are important examples of the consequences that come with illegal music downloading and steps the RIAA is taking to help prevent such illegal
Back in June, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of an Asian-American rock band named “The Slants” and stated the federal government cannot ban trademarks, on the grounds that it offends, to do so violates the first amendment right to freedom of speech. While the rock band was trying to trademark their name as an act of “re-appropriation,” an attempt to reclaim a slur used against their community, the outcome of the court ruling has opened a door for those who would use this ruling for less principled causes. The disparagement clause in the 1946 Lanham Trademark Act prohibited the registration of any mark that officials consider disparaging or offensive to people, institutions, beliefs, etc. Now that the clause is deemed unconstitutional for
Do you think social media and pop culture has made us insensitive to death? Well, I certainly don’t think it has made us insensitive to death.For the debate, I was on the side where social media didn’t cause this behavior, and we had to prove it didn’t make us insensitive to death. Because of the reasons that pop culture have helped us, I still stand by this side. The pros outweigh the cons in pop culture because there are many things that pop culture has given us that are good. Pop culture has become more and more controversial over the years, even though it has gotten better over the long period of time we have been alive.
Hip hop critics believe that hip hop is a violent subculture and supports crime and violence, but research has shown that there is no direct correlation between the two. One hip-hop artist that goes against this stereotype is Kanye Omari West. Mr. West lyrics allows the listener to understand that you don’t have to rap about having money and cars to get someone’s attention. In Kanye West’s Homecoming, he said, “Reach for the stars, so if you fall you land on the clouds.” This is an influential quote that encourages the listener to reach for their goals, but if you happen to fail on the way it’ll be ok because you have a comfort system to be there for you. Many people forget to realize that hip hop began as an outlet for African American and Puerto Ricans living in the South Bronx, so it was never meant to be something everyone should fear.
However, due to the ongoing violation of intellectual property rights, it has led to negative publicity with buyers of heavy equipment and other manufacturers. Besides, Manitowoc has brought the case to federal court and if the Manitowoc win the patent infringement case, it will stop Sany from selling any equipment is manufactured using any of the stolen trade secrets in the US, the market that Sany want to enter. According to the current state, Sany was ultimately barred to sell any of the crawler crane equipment it intends to sell in the US with the court rulings and this has affected its growth prospects outside of
The song 's hook samples the bassline of the 1981 song "Under Pressure" by Queen and David Bowie, who did not receive credit or royalties for the sample. After much denial and a court case, Vanilla Ice finally backed down and agreed to pay David Bowie and the members of Queen royalties because they did, in a sense, contributed to the track. After the legal battle with Bowie and Queen, Vanilla Ice starting losing his
Martin Luther King Martin Luther King harped on civil disobedience for any moral arguments. Treating citizens differently based on skin color was nefarious, King wished to speak out to change but insisted on non-violent acts to do so. He expressed his thoughts in the “I Have a Dream” speech publically in a passive fashion. This passionate, positive and encouraging speech flourished King’s views and changed the American government’s unjust laws. Although, King did not use destructive force to get his point across, he did break some laws.
