Look around, we live in the golden age of content. People are consuming more and more content, in more and more formats - video, audio, text, design and visual media, interactive games, all shared by the million every day. Yeah, we already knew that, but one of the biggest problems of our time is that the law isn’t always as quick as innovation, and so we have a content conundrum. I’m not talking about piracy - I think, as everyone who has moral fiber should think, that piracy is theft, and that there is no way to run a business when people constantly steal your content with little to no consequences as Game Dev Tycoon taught us. No, I’m talking about a bigger problem altogether.
One of the biggest and best things brought upon us by the content revolution is the iterative nature of the content itself. With everyone having access to technology to create and share content, lots of people choose to use that power to create something that riffs on someone else’s work.
