Spanish and Canadian Creative Commons licenses now available

Glenn Otis Brown, October 6th, 2004

Two more sets of International Commons are available: from Spain and Canada. One cool feature these licenses have in common is that both are bilingual. The Spanish licenses are available in Castilian Spanish and Catalan, and the Canadian in English and French.

Accounts of the launch events, by those Commoners who attended them, are coming soon.

The WIRED Concert and CD: Newsweek/MSNBC

Glenn Otis Brown, October 5th, 2004

Another great article on the WIRED CD and Concert, this one from Newsweek/MSNBC.

The piece features great quotes from the bands Spoon and Matmos, who happen to be two of my favorites, two of the WIRED CD contributors, and nice fellows to boot.

Copyright and the US Federal Gov’t

Matt Haughey, October 5th, 2004

While I watch the news in Portland about Mt. St. Helens and its possible upcoming eruption, I’m seeing plenty of links to the volcano webcam on blogs. One of the blogs that stood out for different reasons is the Berkeley Intellectual Property blog’s post about the Terms of Service, copyright status, and law around Federal work entering the public domain.

Piracy-Proof

Glenn Otis Brown, October 4th, 2004

“It has an influence far out of proportion to its size, and some think it could be a guidepost for a record industry in desperate need of direction.”

There is a great article on Nonesuch Records in today’s New York Times magazine. Nonesuch is the label that brings us the recordings of David Byrne, Wilco, Laurie Anderson, Steve Reich, and many other weirdly wonderful sounds. Oh, and they make plenty of money doing it.

“The remarkable thing about [chief Bob Hurwitz's] approach to his business is that it’s pretty much the polar opposite of what the music industry at large does.”
