Is The LEGO Movie Anti-Copyright?

EVERYTHING IS AWESOME in the LEGO™ movie, except when it isn’t and LORD BUSINESS gets in the way and wants to control everything and stifle creativity™! Emmet, Wyldstyle, Batman, and others in the movie seem completely opposed to the imposition of any sort of structure that dictates what will be built and how, which to the gang at Idea Channel sounds really similar to discussions around copyright law and intellectual property (IP). Are master builders just artists who make good use of the public domain? Can the LEGO movie advocate for open culture even if LEGO itself is historically opposed to it? Find out in this week’s episode of Idea Channel!
