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 wasn't ignoring the copyright points because I missed the point, but rather because I didn't disagree with the vision she was trying to express.

My problem was her point was massively diluted with misinformation and personal opinion of scenes she knows little about.

In fact, I notice she does this a lot. She often has an interesting and thought provoking idea but then loses her credibility as she digresses onto topics that are either on a tangent to her original point or just completely inaccurate. It's a real pity as she then loses her readers.

So yes, like yourself, I see myself siding with her ideologies on copyright laws and copyleft licenses; the problem was that didn't seem the main focus of this article and sadly I found the rest of the article to be incorrect.
