So disappointed the Pirate Bay got found guilty, but in the grand scheme it just means the middlemen’s power is gonna get snapped slightly slower. They won’t be able to stop the tide.
If you’re fuzzy on Copyright laws, Uncyclopedia typically presents a refreshing overview. Please go read We Think by Charles Leadbeater. It’s a bit old but in keeping with the theme of open and remix culture check Ludachrist’s below album.

RAPIDBRAPP! Our good friend Murkules has smacked it outta the park with this rinsing speed merengue mix, synthesized from some bits we found downback of interwebs a while back. Here’s wha’ he say:
“Kids aren’t ready for speed merengue. its all breakneck speed kicks drums and claps, synth horn stabs, half time bass licks and slack lyrics. Its some kind of raunchy latin salsatek than cold weather legs can’t handle – shit’s like 190 bpm. Hard digi riddims started coming out of the dominican republic in the mid 90’s and hadn”t really crossed over outside the dominican diaspora since, but mad decent’s new signing Maluca got some kind of 8-bit SM vibes going on. Tropical bass jams to blow your sunny summer, Here’s 40 minutes of hyperspeed badness for you….”

More of my new favourite genre; docusci-fi. An intensely-interesting one about what the state of life on Planet Earth would be like if all the humans just up and vanished – spanning hunneds o’years, the fates of house-pets, unmaintained power-grids and the encroachment of wildlife and greenery are all addressed amongst other things. About as future as you can get.

…in the music industry.
Inspired by a copyright discussion in an interview I had today, I remembered the important history lesson from the video above. The second half gives proof as to why loosened copyright laws in music will encourage creativity. Music startups like Mixcloud are at the forefront of a push for increased access to tunes. Increased access is giving listeners a plethora of influences from which to be inspired – heightening the opportunity for originality through variety and assimilation. This is why Laurence Lessig and Creative Commons points to the future. Lessig acolyte – Girl Talk and his pay-what-you-want album Feed the Animals is what pop music should have been since the 80s, were it not for stringent copyright laws:
Yes, the video avoids the UK YooToob ban – because it’s licensed through Creative Commons! Also, go check out (trailer here) the first open source documentary, which is about all of this – RiP: A Remix Manifesto.
The Amen break is still in full effect today, with the big tune of the moment making explicit reference at about 4:10:
Or was that the last moment? Foamo has already given an entirely different take, with a the remix of the remix:
