thesis "Some Rights Reserved"

Jasper, since 2007 a solid collaborator within Netwaves, has written and published his thesis to finish his studies in Cultural Management. The title is: "Some Rights Reserved: Creative Commons in de Belgische muzieksector". The thesis is written in Dutch, but you can find an abstract in both English and Dutch at the download page @ IA, where you can also find the full-text (pdf, 724 Kb). The work is published under the CC license Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 2.0 Belgium. This is one of the first publications about the use of Creative Commons in the Belgian music scene, with interviews with people from the Rock circuit and DJ's/producers.

actie!


Binnenkort wordt in de Europese Commissie het voorstel gelanceerd om de bescherming op het auteursrecht van 50 jaar op 95 jaar te brengen. Onder de titel "Make sure MEPs hear your views on copyright term extension - get in touch today" geven Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) en Open Rights Group (ORG) enkele tips om uw Europarlementari�r (hier is een lijst van de Vlaamse) te overtuigen om niet voor te stemmen. Je vindt er ook enkele links met argumentaties waarom de EC beter niet het gelobby van de muziekindustrie volgt.
Ik heb Sa�d El Khadraoui al gemaild!

CC and "Non-commercial Use"

What's keeping many people busy is the meaning of "commercial or non-commercial" use in the Creative Commons license with the 'nc' restriction.
In my opinion, and after discussions with other people, i think that every non-profit and public environment is non-commercial. And in a commercial environment, as long as there is no direct financial transaction involved, it is allowed to use the non-commercial factor, ie. playing music with a 'nc' tag in a commercial restaurant is allowed, as long as they don't sell this music, ie. asking a contribution in the bill (they still have to hang out a playlist though).
Anyway, it's difficult stuff, and the people @ CC are aware of the fact that there's a need for a more precise definition of commercial and non-commercial, so they launched a research study that "will explore differences between commercial and noncommercial uses of content".
You will find the full press release here.
Also have a look at a discussion about this item at Molly Kleinman's blog "CC HOWTO #2: How to use a work with a NonCommercial license". You will notice in comment 8, that the Dutch collecting society Buma/Stemra is rather taking a capitalist point of view, ie, almost everything is commercial, even my website netwaves.org, because of 2 silly Google ads.

netlabel grafx


Eldino has posted a graphic of the music genres which netlabels cover. This image is generated with a plug-in in Songbird. It is based on 270 netlabels, with circa 38000 tunes (this list is the personal choice of Eldino). 18% of the music has the tag 'noise' which Eldino uses for 'field recordings, harsh noise, power noise, white noise, scream, lo-fi music and analog'.
If your knowledge of Italian is better than that of your Spanish, you can read on more here.

Copyright news

+ Belgian schools are getting more and more bills from copyright collecting societies. The singing of a simple children song like "Op een klein stationnetje" (In a little station), causes troubles: first there's the copying of the music sheets and texts, then the singing, and eventually the teaching CD, which are all to pay to diferent societies like Sabam, Reprobel, Semu, Simim/Uradex, Auvibel. Now, politicians are asking to make all this more simple in one bill. Read more (Dutch).
+ Flemish libraries offer digital borrowing of music with the 'Digileen' system. One can download from a database of 160.000 tunes, from Keane to Alice Cooper. The 'only' restriction is that this music is DRM protected, and does not work on Mac nor Linux. Read more (Dutch).
+ "Why should a musician who sells one million albums a year be paid so much more than the editor of a national newspaper that sells one billion copies a year?" Tom Whitwell argues that the rock stars of the future will earn less than a Java programmer. Read the whole article.
+ In its latest issue, the magazine Emerce writes about the problems copyright struggles with, the upcoming of Creative Commons, and the uniting of bloggers in a contra-lobby. Read more (Dutch).
