Creative Commons and Negativland - 'Remixing Copyright'
'Reasonable copyright' developers Creative Commons have teamed up with Negativland, practitioners of 'found sound' music, to remix copyright via a joint effort they call a Sampling License.
Negativland's latest anti-corporate, anti-copyright creation is a 6" X 12", 54-page full-colour book with a 45-minute CD soundtrack, and packaged, "inside of a large die-cut automotive courtesy envelope." It is, says Negativland, a "meticulously- layered, ever-shifting electro-acoustic soundscape created to accompany the book. No bass lines, no melody, no dialogue, no singing, no beat - the sound of Negativland's recording studio being destroyed in a car crash."
Net technology and culture already facilitate the, "remixing of culture", says Glenn Otis Brown, Creative Commons executive director. "The law does not, so we're helping it catch up by remixing copyright itself."
The Sampling License will allow people to create collage art and "mash-ups" (as well as other art forms based on re-used materials) from licensed works and will be free to the public from the Creative Commons website.
Creative Commons promotes the creative re-use of intellectual works - whether owned or public domain.
Negativland, an experimental music and art collective, has been recording music/audio/collage works since 1979, producing a weekly 3-hour radio show ("Over The Edge") since 1981, hosting a World Wide Web site since 1995, and performing live on occasional tours throughout America and Europe. They have released 15 CDs, one video and one book (Fair Use: The Story Of The Letter U And The Numeral 2) since 1980.
