Does Copyright Stifle or Enable Creativity?

Now and again you find a talk on copyright on TED from  Johanna Blakely  that makes you think and see things differently. Blakely challenges our values and what creates innovation and also the definition of utility. You find yourself asking if we are we approaching copyright in the right way for the 'creative' media industry sectors?

The question remains how the creator makes money in a world of plagiarism. Perhaps its to do more with the democratization of fashion, recipes, jokes, etc. This forces designers and creators to go that extra mile and taking copying as a driver and not a negative.
