        Is The LEGO Movie Anti-Copyright? | PBS Idea Channel

        "Everything is awesome" in the LEGO' movie, except when "Lord Business" gets in the way and wants to control everything and to 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. To us at Idea Channel, this sounds very 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?
