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.

Third thing: the Impressionists - and any other rule-breaking artist innovator - has to know what the rules they're breaking ARE. Those impressionists were well trained in the traditional art of painting. There is a huge difference between knowing what you're doing when you break the rules, and just breaking them because you don't know any better.

Yes, but it's also true that sometimes knowing the rules makes it harder to think outside of the rules.

In my opinion, people are either talented or they're not. Talented musicians will still compose good songs even if it's a little raw due to inexperience. However experienced bad musicians will write well produced but ultimately dull music.
