Project Gramophone

Matt Haughey, August 13th, 2003

Project Gramophone is a new project that aims to become a definitive source for early recordings that slipped into the public domain. The goals are similar to Project Gutenberg, but with audio instead of text. For now, the project features a mailing list open to anyone interested in contributing to the project.

Illegitimate Offspring

Glenn Otis Brown, August 10th, 2003

Salon has two good stories this weekend on mash-ups (also known, across the pond, as “bastard pop”): 1, 2.

These older Salon stories on the same subject, from 2002 and 1998, provide a couple of nice reference points. If this is all just a trend, it’s a sure and steady one.

Read about Creative Commons’ plans to help make this sort of of culture legitimate, in the law’s eyes at least.

Nothing So Strange Movie

Matt Haughey, August 7th, 2003

This week’s featured content is the open-source film “Nothing So Strange.” While the whole film is protected by full copyright, individual clips can be downloaded for a nominal fee (a few cents in most cases), with the film’s footage available for reuse, remix, and commercial use in any other work provided attribution is given.

It’s an interesting experiment in both filmmaking and micropayments.
