How Mickey Mouse Evades the Public Domain
Zachary Crockett, in Priceonomics: "It’s a sad truth for crusaders of the public domain: the more powerful and recognizable a piece of corporate property is (and thus, the more coveted it is by society at large), the less likely it is to be relinquished."

How Facebook is Stealing Billions of Views
Jason Kottke points to Kurzgesagt's newest video: "Facebook just announced 8 billion video views per day. This number is made out of lies, cheating and worst of all: theft. All of this is wildly known but the media giant Facebook is pretending everything is fine, while damaging independent creators in the process. How does this work?"

Louis Menand asks, "Are copyright laws too strict?"
"This almost instinctive distinction between what is proper in the analog realm and what is proper in the digital realm is at the center of a global debate about the state of copyright law. Statutes protecting copyright have never been stricter; at the same time, every minute of every day, millions of people are making or using copies of material—texts, sounds, and images—that they didn’t create.... The law seems to be completely out of whack with the technology."

it’s history, not a viral feed
Amen to this: "Feeds like @HistoryinPics make it impossible for anyone interested in a picture to find out more about it, to better understand what it is showing, and to assess its accuracy. As a teacher and as someone who works in a cultural heritage institution, I am deeply invested in the value of studying the past and of recognizing that the past is never neutral or transparent."

The CRAPL: An academic-strength open source license
Great idea from Matt Might: "Science thrives on openness. In modern science, it is often infeasible to replicate claims without access to the software underlying those claims. Let's all be honest: when scientists write code, aesthetics and software engineering principles take a back seat to having running, working code before a deadline. So, let's release the ugly. And, let's be proud of that."

Jonathan Coulton on music, file sharing, and the future
"I have no doubt that this fight over mp3s is just the first of many fights we're going to have about this stuff. Our laws and ethics already fail to match up with our behaviors, and for my money, those are the things we should be trying to fix. The change is already happening to us, and it's a change that WE ARE CHOOSING. It's too late to stop it, because we actually kind of like a lot of the things that we're getting out of it."

How We Will Read: Kevin Kelly
A great interview with Kevin Kelly about the future of publishing, reading, and books: "My real focus is actually making it as easy as possible for someone to read the work. Make it easy as possible for them to hear about it, make it as easy as possible for them to get it, make it easy as possible for them to get into it, to read it. Right now any kind of impediment in any of those fields and you’re gone. Making it free was just one step in that direction."

Cory Doctorow on the Google Book Search settlement
"[N]o one, not Google, not Santa Claus, should have this kind of leverage over the entire world of literature. It's abominable. No one benefits when markets consolidate into a single monopoly gatekeeper -- not even the gatekeeper, who is apt to lose its edge without competition to keep it sharp."

Fair Use Guidelines for Educational Multimedia
Finally! A helpful list of tips for using multimedia artifacts in teaching and in student projects. Of course, nothing can stop someone from suing you and/or your university, but the long list of organizations and government agencies supporting these guidelines should provide some level of reassurance for nervous educators.
