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.

>Classical ...requires human players

What bunk! This music stuff is well understood, but a pain to keep in mind, competitively with foodie and news and various crafts. As if computers couldn't be relied upon to apply styling to a score, or Sony Acid Studio (I think Vocaloid--humanlike singing--is a separate IP unit) doesn't have that in there, or the classical remixers who participate on OCRemix.org won't let their studio tools participate in the play and orchestration?

Separately; what's this contract stuff and to-do? I understand it kills the band members (until an ad finally works,) and often appropriates the work, but doesn't everyone casually look for iTunes promotion?

Glo-fi or drone stuff like Warren Ellis promotes is the new genre?
