Abstract

Being able to access copyrighted material is fundamental to freedom of expression. This is ever more acutely obvious in a digital environment, in which exchange of quoted and often remixed copyrighted material is a daily feature of media use and social networking. But it is a basic right that requires better public education to balance the censorship effects of monopoly ownership rights.
