Overview of this Trend's Impact on the Arts, Entertainment and Leisure

How is this trend currently impacting the Arts, Entertainment, and Leisure? What do people create? At what do people look? How do people spend their time? Are more or less people getting involved in the arts?

The term art is changing with the modern world. In today’s digital world we can be sure art no longer means drawing in a canvas or performing in stage but the current technology has given the term art a whole new meaning. Roughly 50 years ago when computer was first being developed, people could only show their artistic talents on paper and on stage. Many people do not feel comfortable performing in stage or share their creativity skills to others but with the current technological advantage; many can now show their talents to the world.

when comes to websites such as or youtube, people feel
comfortable posting their videos in their and claim ownership of that
video. since these website do not allow users to download the video, the
author feels more comfortable working with it. These websites cannot fully
give the author the guarantee that their work will not be copied, this is
because of softwares that can work beyond these websites security measures
and give people the access to download the videos using softwares or just
have a copy of the screen shots to download. since people mostly put up
their work in these kind of website for self recognition or hobby, most
people don’t feel the urge to look more into area of plagiarism. There are
very few people who even read the terms and condition of these websites
before signing up, this is a common thing for (stats needed for number of
people who read rules and regulation) almost all people, no one is willing
to spend an hour reading long rules and regulation pages, so when they
click the part where it says "i accept the terms and condition" in most
cases it means that the website will not take responsibility for any stolen
artifacts or it could even mean that the website will take owner ship of
every work you upload. they could even have the right to declare the work
and sell it to other companies for advertising purpose. (find cases of
this happening if possible). this might not be something that we might
have hard of in regular basis but the terms and condition that appears is
kind of like a contacts in digital format and you are signing to it. since
we live in a world where we are new digital immigrant, we still believe
that fact that we are untouchable in the digital world, just because we
are communication through a machine with people who are in half way
around the world doesn’t always mean that we have the security to do
anything online, when comes to hackers this is a perfect example of why
are not untouchable in the digital world. the new technology has gives
us the privilege of connecting with people around the world and socialize
