With MediaBreaker, you can remix or break different types of media, like commercials, music videos, news clips and more. But someone owns all that media you’re messing with. So if someone owns it, and you’re using it without permission, isn’t that like stealing?
Not necessarily. Watch this video to learn more about reusing copyrighted content.
Talking back with media is a powerful way to make your voice heard, but you need to do it critically. This means that you have to be thoughtful, not insulting or merely stating the obvious. You’ve got to make a point about something bigger – something that goes beyond the video itself.
