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.

I saw three great bands perform last night: Crooked Still, Sara Watkins, and Ryan Bingham. (I'd highly recommend that you check them out) I made a point of buying CDs at the show, and as I pointed out to my wife at the time, I do that because I know that they'll get all the money, instead of some measly percentage (or none).
