Walter Isaacson, the CEO of the Aspen Institute and biographer of Steve Jobs, Benjamin Franklin, and Albert Einstein, talks about a future where authorship of books is just another crowdsourcing project

I wholehearted agree. Wikipedia is already an accepted form of crowdsourcing content, whereby multiple authors can edit a page and the crowd checks to see the legitimacy of the content. Kickstarter, Indiegogo, and likes are already popularizing the notion of crowdfunding to the masses. AirBnB and Uber have catapulted the "sharing economy" into the limelight.

So, after various forms of the crowd-movement are widely accepted into society - crowdsourcing, crowdfunding, and crowdsharing - it's only a matter of time until more creative content are derived from crowdsourcing. Sites like Quirky and HitRecord are the first wave. Wait until we see the second wave. 

Copyright laws would have to dramatically change in the age of crowdsourcing and remix culture.
