The concept of the REMIx is a dangerous one. Especially dangerous only if you don’t know what it is, what it means, or why people are saying things like “Talent Imitates, Genius Steals.”
So, in case you missed the original LIVE version of chasejarvisLIVE: the REMIX episode with Mike Relm, we have delivered you with some re-watch goods once again. As always, the rewatch episode is not the complete show and you miss out on the chance to interact with us LIVE, however there’s still a veritable cornucopia of deep, important, even controversial info here for your devouring.

Everything is very open with a really clear description of the issues.
It was really informative. Your site is extremely
helpful. Thank you for sharing!
What you posted was very logical. However, think about this, suppose you added a little content?
I ain’t suggesting your content isn’t good., however what if you added a post title that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean chasejarvis LIVE –
the REMIX episode with Mike Relm | Chase Jarvis Blog is kinda plain. You might look at Yahoo’s
home page and see how they create post headlines to grab people to
open the links. You might try adding a video or a pic or two to grab people excited about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it
might bring your blog a little livelier.
Very soon this web site will be famous amid all blogging
and site-building visitors, due to it’s fastidious articles
It’s hard to come by experienced people about this subject,
but you seem like you know what you’re talking about!
I call bullshit on this. This is not T.S. Elliot talking about improving a previous artists work, this is stealing content for his own profit. Not only are the previous artists being ripped off but what about the actors, the camera crew, the producers, the director, etc from the original content? Do they get compensated? What if I lift ever photo off of Chase’s site and develop my own remix video ( I can’t easily because Chase’s site uses java to protect his content ).
So Chase, I have an idea to improve your work, so give me access to all your content, I’m not stealing….I’m improving it. Or I got another idea. Chase I bought your Zack Arias creativeLive video. I think I’ll remix it and post it on YouTube this weekend. I bet I hear from you and Zack.
The video keeps talking about if it is good it is ok but what if it isn’t good, it’s not ok? Who decides if it is good or not?
The dude is stealing plain and simple. There is a difference between taking an idea and improving; it is completely different to take someone else’s content and use it. If the original artist says it’s ok to use their content then great but how about the person who doesn’t want their content taken? What if that person was already working to improve their original content in a similar fashion as the person who just ripped them off? Is that right?
Hey I believe in taking ideas (not content) and working to improve, to expand on the original thought/idea. This doesn’t only apply to creative work but also products and inventions. Steve Jobs did not take other people’s MP3’s and put colorful colors on them and resell them. He took an idea and improved on it without infringing on their patents.
