More synthetic bamboo! The greatest preset sounds in pop music | Music | The Guardian
“Whether a pop classic or a royalty-free instrumental from YouTube, collage, rewriting, quotations, sometimes thieving a melody – all that is at the heart of a thousand songs that I love. Debate about the purity of creation is void; we live in a society that spits and digests, and pop music is an impure space. That’s precisely why I love it.”

The real cost of free | Cory Doctorow | Technology |
Those who say that they can control copies are wrong, and they will not profit by their strategy. They should be entitled to ruin their own lives, businesses and careers, but not if they're going to take down the rest of society in the process.

Musopen Wants to Give Classical Music to the Public Domain | Electronic Frontier Foundation
Museopen is looking to solve a difficult problem: while symphonies written by Beethoven, Brahms, Sibelius, and Tchaikovsky are in the public domain, many modern arrangements and sound recordings of those works are copyrighted. That means that even after purchasing a CD or collection of MP3s of this music, you may not be able to freely exercise all the rights you'd associate with works in the public domain, like sharing the music using a peer-to-peer network or using the music in a film project.

Tribune Interactive Creates Photo Galleries Using Creative Commons Images from Flickr - Poynter Online - E-Media Tidbits
"For me, it was just a way of giving back a little," Wright said. "I've been online for years and seen lots of free media that really spoke to me, entertained me and in a few rare cases even moved me. So when I found out about Flickr I felt like to go Creative Commons was a way to pay it forward to the online community so that others could see my work and do what they would with it. Honestly, if I never sold a single work I'd still do it because I love it."

Creative Commons on Flickr: Users Prefer Restrictive Licenses - ReadWriteWeb
Flickr now holds the world's largest repository of Creative Commons-licensed images, but according to a new study, most Flickr users opt to license their images under the most restrictive CC license. Also, only a relatively small number of users (24%) allow commercial use of their images, and only about 12% of users choose the BY license, which allows for free sharing and remixing, as long as the author is attributed.

Famed Indian film director keeps a foot in Silicon Valley - San Jose Mercury News
The answer lies in incredible maneuverability. It lies in being able to shift, change, create new things all the time. But what happens is, when you build a corporate structure, you've built a battleship, and a battleship can't move that fast. I can see a point where, in five years' time, corporate lawyers are technologists. Their job is to make sure you are protected for the first 24 hours — beyond which you are building a brand — not for 70 years, not for 100 years.

"When you know music well enough — and I know it just well enough to hear the stuff inside the music — it's almost always the mistakes that are more interesting, the deviations, the errors, the recovery, the experiment inside the song."

"The Brazilian government is definitely pro-law," he grins. "But if law doesn't fit reality anymore, law has to be changed. That's not a new thing. That's civilisation as usual."
