Sorry for the delay on this post but we had a couple people come on out for a remix manifesto. It was a very insightful movie and brought to light many problems with our copyright system in the US. I must say it was a very convincing argument for the open source movement and illustrated what hardships artists like Girl Talk face now and in the future. It’s hard to know exactly where to draw the line with copyrighting because the original purpose of a copyright was to promote innovation and ideas; however, with powerhouses like the RIAA taking advantage it seems like we may be outgrowing this system. Seeing as we are a collaboration of inventors and innovators I open this discussion both here and in person–I would love to get more input!
Also, anybody should feel free to come out to movie nights–with a couch, projector, and naturally some PBR its hard to go wrong!
