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.

Perhaps, Linux doesn't quite measure up to the corporate standards the music and art industries have promoted within the microsoft and apple empires. So what. I do not work for them. I am free to create whatever I want with Linux and CCL. Is money the only motivation for art? I think what I do is for enjoyment. The rest of you can go get 20th century jobs. D.W. Griffith made an epic movie at the onset of a fledgling motion picture industry start-up. Look where it journeyed. I think this is the embarking of a new future voyage. Cut bait or fish...your choice.
