CopyrightProtection Does Provide Motivation for Artistic Creativity
CopyrightProtection Does Provide Motivation for Artistic Creativity
Creativityis a concept which needs to be incorporated in human undertakings inthe 21stcentury. A lot of information is availed through internet and otherresources in these case students and other individuals have opted tocopy such information instead of experimented on their own skills orcoming up with their skills (Music PublishersAssociation, 2011).In the past, we have had great discoveries from various legends likeEinstein but the current generation is no longer creative. So toenhance creativity, copyright protection needs to be enacted.Therefore this paper has elaborated on this concept. The thesis ofthis paper is thus the copyrightprotection does kills motivation for artistic creativity throughimproper education system practices on students through three ways:protection from making mistakes, showing examples instead ofdefinitions and encouraging freedom instead of focus.
First,artistic creativity is not killed by the protecting individuals frommaking mistakes. Creativity is killed by protecting the individualsfrom doing mistakes. Take an instance if I am a teacher and studentstell me about the new idea or anything they have never tried before.If it fails I experiment with another alternative way of doing it. So can I tell them what happened or even explain it? Sometimes theyask they ask for something which I have never come by and I canqueues what and why it will happen. Then another question is how muchshall I ask or tell them? If there is a hazard involved, I can posesome questions to create awareness on the students concerning thesafety. The students who learn through question forming can imaginefuture scenarios and help with creativity since imagining futurescenarios involves creativity. The students can be taught to beintuitive.It is well understood that making mistakes is discouraging but it isworth understanding that the people who are very creative haveovercome a lot of mistakes. Mistakes pave the way for generation ofnew ideas which could not have been thought. The persistence alsoleads to more creativity. It is important to support and encouragestudents when a mistake occurs to ensure it persists. At the end theyneed to realize the prize of the unexpected outcomes, persistence,discoveries and experimentation. It is also worth noting that manyworld changing discoveries were initiated at the beginning asmistakes. Hence through prevention of mistakes, the future superstarsare prevented.
Secondly,the artistic creativity is not killed by showing the example insteadof defining the problem. Again in the Art history a teacher may givestudents the examples at the end of the lesson to use what waslearned as a reference. However, when not showing examples before themedia work a better problem definition is provided and more chancesgiven to the technique practices to students who may not be alert atthe begging since they cannot think on their own. Sometimes thepractice is repeated severally till every student understands how touse the new skill in order for them to be creative. By not giving anexample he students are given time for their minds to operate. Thismeans discussing the conduct practice sessions and assignment issueson a day and repeat the problem again ion another day. Sometimesstudents forget what was practiced and a teacher asks questions toenable them learn that remembering what was learnt is good. As ateacher, if the students are not entitled to listening keenly, Iwould demonstrate to them on what is supposed to look like so thatthey don’t get lost. This will through repletion of problemdefinition buy use of different words or use of sketches that theythink it might work. If answers are not shown to them, they willrequire help on how some people become creative. A future challengeis forwarded before the real production so that the mind becomesfocused to it. Creative individuals have many projects at differentstages of their development. Thus creative minds work when unleashedbut showing examples may be inspirational but develop slicker worksand less creative skills (Liu, 2010). Through it people never learnsto live on the original ideas but on other peoples skins.
Thirdly,the artistic creativity is killed by not encouraging freedom withoutthe focus. Creativity is killed by encouraging freedom without thefocus. When students are told to do whatever they want, they preventrisks by doing what they had earlier learnt hence their creativity iszero. Due to limits, thereis a high chance of having the most challenging task.  There isneed to have limits on mindless repetition of past success. Everyonehas to encourage new and creative methods of problem solving (U.S.Copyright Office, 2014). The teacher`s task is to ensure the limitsare interesting and compelling to the students. Good lessonsprovide learning goals ask questions, and reasonable objectives. As ateacher this job is ensure works are easy challenging and make thehard stuff be available for access accessible. However, it is alsobetter for the students to set the limits and the focus bythemselves, as long as they go beyond the repletion of the pastsuccess (Lincoln, 2009). Also self copying repetition needs to belimited (Robinson, 2011). If a teacher wants students to developchoices that need decision making and genuine thinking he or she willneed to devise ways of discouraging pot out thinking, new growth,problem solving methods and discoveries. A creative class includesexperimentation and thinks or focuses outside the goals. The mostrecommended standards are therefore the working habits and thethinking to initiate the self learning. This can be aided byself-learning choices self-challenge and difficulties in search foranswers.
Inconclusion, there is need to bring the motivation into the 21stcentury to get rid of the lazy and dangerous ideology to strengthenour undertakings. Through this we can change our problems and thewhole world. According to Bellido (2013), we should add all kinds ofthings the economy like creation, challenges, ownership, identity,pride, etc. and through incorporation of such people would be happierand productive.
