The Creative Commons initiatives are an initiative that helps to bring creativity and new products that are sellable to the market. These creative expressions should be allowed in the sense that the creativity of the people will help enhance the creative markets. Creative minds of user-generated content should be revived by enabling laws that promote creativity. With this move, the user generated content will be enhanced. Copyright laws should be enhanced. Creative Commons is a good step and should be allowed to continue with their licenses (Bynum, & Rogerson, 2004).
Copyright holders will benefit from this as part of their work will be sold. If we take the example of having some part of an album being sold, the copyright holder will benefit from the sales as they will get part of the returns. It is common to see many artists doing poorly because of the stringent measures and laws that govern their products. With Creative Commons, it will be better as they will manage to have their products being creatively integrated with other products and thereby making a much better and marketable product (Taylor, 2006).
Intellectual property of the people who create these innovative products should be protected. This is because they have the benefit of their innovativeness. The protection of their intellectual products should be protected by integrating their intellectual rights to those of the original producers. This way, the protection will be achieved as they will have one protection (Vaidhyanathan, S2001).
Digital rights management technologies should be utilized so that they manage and protect digital property. With this age and era, there are a lot of digital properties that have been created. This will ensure that the digital content is protected from piracy (Vaidhyanathan, 2001).
