Our system of law doesn’t acknowledge the derivative nature of creativity. Instead, ideas are regarded as property, as unique and original lots with distinct boundaries. But ideas aren’t so tidy. They’re layered, they’re interwoven, they’re tangled. And when the system conflicts with the reality… the system starts to fail.
Everything is a Remix may have come to a close but Ferguson’s already moving ahead with new project This is Not a Conspiracy Theory “a multi-part series that will explain the major ideas, events and human quirks that have shaped where we are right now politically“. If you enjoyed Everything is a Remix, then you can show your appreciation by contributing to the new series’ Kickstarter campaign.
