Universal City Studios, Inc. v. Corley, 273 F.3d 429 (2d Cir. 2001) Shanikia Easter 1/24/2015 Instructor: Amy Cargle Applied Business Law Everest Universal City Studios, Inc. v. Corley, 273 F.3d 429 (2d Cir. 2001) I think that if you purchase any media you should be able to make personal copies because you purchase the movie and it is now your property. Also; the value of the media usually decreases after opening it anyway and because it is necessary to have a back up copy. In my opinion it will be very hard to balance between the rights of both groups on this issue because there is people for it and people against it.
Critique on Do Video Games Kill? This article “Do Video Games Kill” by Karen Sternheimer addresses the wide spread idea; video games are the cause for “young killers” (210). Sternheimer believes concern for the influence video games may have on youth is spiraling out of control. She put most of the blame for this out of control concern on the media. She also writes some about politicians and the Juvenile Justice system.
But long ago violent games were invented based on violent movies so if someone says it causes aggression then some movies in the world cause aggression too. Violent video games also improve your memory due to finding attacks that work best and you try harder to remember them. They also help you with map work coordinates, self positioning, knowing your surroundings and remembering that you have been in this certain place before. So I think people have their own opinions but I think I have proved a few good points and the violent games were created by people who were aggressive from the start. Everyone deals with stress and frustrations differently.
All around us, we can see a lot of propaganda ads on television, magazine, newspaper, and etc. What is propaganda? In the article by Ann McClintock, it states that propaganda “is a systematic effort to influence people’s opinions, to win them over to a certain view or side.” I believe we have been influenced by the propaganda advertisements. Some psychologists’ point of view consider that propaganda are in fact changing our mind and heart, because they make our spirits full of material desires. For instance, sometimes we purchase something that we don’t even need because of our desire.
If the majority of the population finds the script of a film to be unclear and hard to understand then they will give their friends that feedback and so people won’t go to see the film, which is especially bad for a mainstream film as they cost millions to produce and rely on commercial success. Also a simple storyline and straight-forward dialogue helps when translating the film for foreign markets thus increasing its commercial success. A good film script can make a new film successful as more people will go and watch it if they have heard good reviews from critics or their friends and family. However, there are many other factors apart from just having a good film script that can determine whether a mainstream film will gain the desired commercial success. The producers want the film to appeal to a mass market so that they can get mass audiences to go see their film.
Clear in our minds everyone do not really see the aspects of the movies that we are watching, nevertheless it plays in the overall of the movie. I would like to be assistance for both you and I to comprehend additional information on how to analyze a movie in addition to reading between the lines and how to evaluate a motion picture. Several people do not notice the characteristic of the movies they are watching. Films have been altered from black and white movies to color movies. As the time has gone by, so has to quality and plot have expanded.
Michael Madigan Mrs. Stamp 11/21/08 English 101 Violence in Today’s Media In the world today society is facing a problem with violence in children. Children are choosing video games and computer games that are violent. Television shows and films of today are showing violent gun shootings and gory hand to hand combat scenes. The daily news escalates the problem by showing terrorist attacks and car bombings.
I believe change is always good but not all that change that has been made over the past ten years. In a positive way, technology has advanced when it comes to the movies about our history are more realistic and people can relate a lot more. In a negative way, I feel the media period is destroying our younger generation. Children are “looking up to” their “role models” who are celebrities that are very inappropriate. Sex is about the only thing used now a days to sell anything.
Aside from the extreme amount of time wasted, video games teach players questionable life lessons. They have the power to mold children into violent criminals and thieves. They have been shown to cause a player’s physical and mental health to deteriorate. Underneath the pixilated fun that video games attempt to portray, is a great underlying malevolence that harms society. Video games have a strong addictive power.
Don’t Judge a Book by its Movie American society has become overwhelmed with the visual media, and often this media overshadows the classical paper books. The metaphorical phrase “don’t judge a book by its cover” is well known by most Americans; given our technological age, perhaps now we should think of it as “don’t judge a book by its movie.” When novels go through the process of being made into a motion picture the novel tends to be changed to better accommodate the actors or the audience. Sometimes this can be very effective; but occasionally writing movies originally from books can also be destructive to the author’s original ideas and purposes. The film Field of Dreams, produced by Universal Pictures, is based on the novel Shoeless Joe written by W.P. Kinsella.
