I think that there are copy right laws so they can enforce the protection of people’s works and creations. If there were no copy right laws then anyone can steal someone else’s work and claim it as there own. There are copy right laws so that people can’t say steal mickey mouse from Disney and put it in their own cartoon and then make money off of it.
I think the reason that the government made fair use laws so that they could prevent people from copyrighting people’s work but have it so people are still able to use other people’s work but in the sense that they do not make money off of it. It promotes the freedom of use but at the expense of it not being for money purposes.
If nobody honored copyright rules i think everyone would just put whatever they want into everything they do and not honor the people who actually made the stuff. Everyone would put Mickey Mouse and Batman in their ads, movies and etc.
