Multimedia, AV Every so often we publish here at OSNews articles about copyright, about the war of the "old media" establishment against everyone else. Many, myself included, have argued that the way to get out of this mess -- short of changing the law -- is to have more artists release their work under a Creative Commons license. However, after a few years it became obvious to me that CC would never be able to change the industry all by itself. Offering a Free license, and having 30,000 albums released under it, was still not enough. Until the Summer of 2009, that is. Update: Added audio samples.

*very* optimistic here, I do not know if this will work, but had hoped that piracy should be able to move us further along a similar path, by making artists stop churning out crap for the money, and start to make music for the sake of music, and to let people hear their vision.
