Project EquillbRIAA

For the last few years I've talked quietly of a project to connect
artists with the victims of lawsuits in the name of their bands.  After
the verdict handed down by the latest case of Sony vs. Tenenbaum I think
it is time to put this plan to action.  I've emailed Joel and received a
list of the bands he was sued for and what I'd like to do is draw
national attention to the public interfaces these bands have set up for
themselves.

I've created a public document which contains a list of the bands and
any Twitter, Myspace, Facebook, or other public forums the bands have
set up for themselves.  I could use help tracking down some of the
missing links in this list.  In some cases the bands no longer exist but
members of the original band still live on in other bands or on their own.

To be clear the purpose of this project is not to harass these
musicians.  It is to remove the wedge of the RIAA from artists and their
fans and ask them to communicate.  The one question I'd like to see the
artists answer is "Do you support the actions the RIAA has taken on
behalf of your band in destroying the life of Joel Tenenbaum?"

Joel is being fined $22,500 for each of the 30 songs that he downloaded
from KaZaa.  His total fine is $675,000 for an activity that a majority
of the Internet users in this country have and still participate in.
This isn't to say that we should advocate copyright infringement but
that we shouldn't agree with the penalties associated with infringement.

This project is still being assembled and I would appreciate any
feedback and help the FC community can muster.  I'd like to coordinate a
massive feedback storm requesting comment via Twitter, Myspace, etc so
these artists can't escape without saying something.  Anything.  What we

pharma & (non)-free culture

Powerful op-ed on the intersection between free culture and the 
political economy underlying Big Pharma.

http://www.independent.co.uk/opinion/commentators/johann-hari/johann-hari-the-hidden-truth-behind-drug-company-profits-1767257.html

"This is the story of one of the great unspoken scandals of our times. 
Today, the people across the world who most need life-saving medicine 
are being prevented from producing it. Here's the latest example: 
factories across the poor world are desperate to start producing their 
own cheaper Tamiflu to protect their populations – but they are being 
sternly told not to. Why? So rich drug companies can protect their 
patents – and profits. There is an alternative to this sick system, but
we are choosing to ignore it.

...

The idea of ring-fencing life-saving medical knowledge so a few people 
can profit from it is one of the great grotesqueries of our age. We have 
to tear down this sick system – so the sick can live. Only then we can 
globalise the spirit of Jonas Salk, the great scientist who invented the 
polio vaccine, but refused to patent it, saying simply: "It would be 
like patenting the sun."

Free culture or "digital barbarism"? A novelist on copyright

http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/news/2009/08/one-mans-stand-against-digital-barbarism.ars

The guy who wrote this book is such a troll. This literature is garbage when compared to Larry's Free Culture.

Hello From Your New Board Of Directors

Writes Ben Moskowitz on our blog:

Hello!

The five of us are thrilled to join (and rejoin) the 2009-2010 board of
directors. We're very excited about guiding Students for Free Culture
over the next year—there's plenty of awesome stuff in store.

You'll hear more from us over the coming days about what we'll be doing
to re-energize SFC and the Free Culture movement. For now, we want to
take the opportunity to (re)introduce ourselves:

![Kevin Driscoll][1]**_Kevin Driscoll_ completed a Master's degree in
[Comparative Media Studies][2] at MIT last semester where he was a
member of the MIT Free Culture chapter and part of the [YouTomb][3]
research project. Kevin is concerned with encouraging everyday
creativity and highlighting unexpected uses of consumer technologies by
young people - especially in resistance to systemic oppression. In the
fall, he will continue graduate work at the [Annenberg School for
Communication][4] at USC. You can see his digital traces on his
[superfeed][5].

**

![Ben Moskowitz][6]**_Ben Moskowitz_** co-founded the [SFC <at> Berkeley][7]
chapter of Students for Free Culture and created a seminar on the
cultural dimensions of piracy. He also co-organized the [Free Culture
2008 Conference][8] and the [Open Video Conference in NYC][9].
 He is currently a student of Mandarin language at NYU SCPS and serves
as General Coordinator of the Open Video Alliance, promoting openness in
online video. See [http://openvideoconference.org][10] for more. Ben
wants to see SFC become a force on campuses all over the world—let's
make it happen!

![Kevin Donovan][11]**_Kevin Donovan_**_ _is a rising junior at
Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service, majoring in Science,
Technology & International Affairs with a certificate in International
Development. He started the Georgetown chapter of SFC and has worked on
technology policy issues at the World Bank's _info_Dev program and is
currently working on an OpenCourseWare pilot program. He writes about
technology policy at [Techdirt][12], his [personal blog][13], and on
[Twitter][14].While in South Africa recently Kevin had the chance to go
sandboarding, which is easily the coolest sport ever devised.

![Christina Ducruet][15]**_Christina Ducruet_** graduated from Brown
University in May 2008 with a degree in Modern Culture and Media. While
an undergrad, she founded the Brown chapter of Students for Free Culture
in reaction to the RIAA lawsuits that hit 20+ campuses in Spring 2007.
She's been involved with SFC ever since, creating resources and
organizing campaigns to rally people to the Free Culture movement.
Christina is excited and honored to serve on the SFC Board for a second
term and thinks the best is yet to come for SFC. She currently lives and
works in Connecticut.

![Parker Higgins][16]**Parker Higgins** is entering his senior year at
New York University's Gallatin School for Individualized Study.  He is
the president of the NYU chapter of Students for Free Culture.  Stemming
from his previous work with the Participatory Culture Foundation,
creators of the Miro HD video player, he runs the occasionally updated
internet TV channels [Free Culture TV][17] and[ Yes We're Open][18].
 The channels feature freely-licensed FC-related content and highlight
emerging issues for the community. This summer he is volunteering for
Creative Commons.

## So, what's next?

You can review the notes of the first 09/10 board meeting [here][19].

The [nominations page][20] contains each candidates' thoughts on SFC and
its future. Here is where the five of us agree that our time should be
focused:

  * Ensuring that the Open University Campaign is a success, potentially
through a stand-alone site or committee-based action;

  * Collaborating with other organizations and establishing SFC as a key
public voice on free culture issues;

  * Planning the next Free Culture conference; and

  * Making involvement in SFC as user-friendly and accessible to new
members and chapters.

Of course, SFC's strength lies in the awesome people and projects of its
local chapters. Chapter leaders can expect to hear from us shortly as we
work to bring everyone up to speed with our plans to revitalize SFC. In
the meantime, we want to hear from you—what do you think is necessary to
keep SFC going strong through this year and beyond? What's next for SFC?
How can we improve? Sound off in the comments.

I think this is a really great idea. Perfect way to illustrate the
fact that there is a big nasty corporation between the fans and the
musicians.

Hopefully it won't backfire!

Re: Free culture or "digital barbarism"? A novelist on copyright

Hey Gabe,

Here are a few more links for you:

Larry responds to Helprin and then to further accusations of
"socialism" as a goal of Free Culture:
http://www.lessig.org/blog/2009/05/the_solipsist_and_the_internet.html
http://www.lessig.org/blog/2009/05/et_tu_kk_aka_no_kevin_this_is.html

NPR reprints (with permission) chapter 5 for review and debate:
http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=103508516

Plagarism Today's harsh review, calling it "wasted pages...petty
insults...flawed arguments":
http://www.plagiarismtoday.com/2009/05/20/book-review-digital-barbarism/

So yeah, the book probably caused a great deal more writers to take
closer look at FC, and many of them (those with blogs or online
columns anyway) tended to like what they saw, rejecting Digital
Barbarism's claims. Larry's retort was, even if a bit emotional and
defensive, very complete and comprehensive.

Cheers,
Ryan

New Report on the Future of the FCC

http://brosephstalin.com/2009/08/10/uncertain-futures-an-analysis-of-the-fccs-newest-commissioners/

Releasing a short policy strategy analysis today on the future of the newly minted FCC -- basically giving a 30,000 foot overview of the commissioners and then doing some educated guesses about how positions will play out in the coming years across different issues. We're also emphasizing Mignon Clyburn's role as an unknown swing vote that could give either side on controversial issues the majority. Thoughts on who might be interested in this? Any ideas would be appreciated!

Thanks,
Tim

Re: Project EquillbRIAA

I think we should do something. I will be speaking up on the FFIP blog in the coming days. 

The music industry is shifting to business models that are enhanced by Joel's sharing not destroyed.  To see NIN and Radio Head on the list of artist made my stomach jump.  The list also includes the Ramones and Rage Against the Machine, two bands I listened to as counter culture heroes growing up, this list of artists is almost as painful to read as it was to hear a 1984 was deleted off peoples Kindles. The industry is harming the artist by criminalizing a generation, when they should be empowering us to work with artist to provide for the future of music.  We will look back on this case a farce, some artist are already excited to have fans that provide free promotion and distribution.  I strongly believe that this case is just a head of its time, unfortunately digital natives will not join the legislature and the bench for another 10 to 20 years. 

Someone with better remix skills then me should exercise there First Amendment rights to create a message for the RIAA out of works from the artist on this list.  For now I will have to stick with a mixed tape:

The Downward Spiral - NIN- Where the RIAA is going when they alienate fans
Head like a hole - NIN- "I would rather die then give you control" How I feel about giving up my rights to live in a permission / censorship based culture
Ramones - Beat the Brat - Showing more love for the industry middle men
Rage Against the Machine - Township Rebellion - "Now freedom must be fundamental"

I am sure there are some other songs I could add with Nirvana, Pink Floyd, and The Beastie Boys on the list.  

I am open to any ideas that add a younger, more tech savy perspective to the debate.  The current media is being dominated by protectionist that are missing the future.

-Brian
