In light of Tumblr’s stance against corporations and the new proposed legislation, I think it’s important to bring up the point against censorship.  RIP! A Remix Manifesto is a documentary that argues against piracy laws, citing that we are no  longer a passive audience.  In fact, the general public now wants to create, not just consume.   If these new laws are passed, then it’s not just censorship, but these  corporations (and the government) might just be stifling the creativity  of many people.  The documentary also goes on to argue that it’s not  piracy; it’s remixing.  What do you think?  (And be sure to check out the Neon Tommy’s article on the subject here.)
