Sabam bakt ze blauw

Muziekscholen krijgen opslag van Sabam: "Na de cr�ches en de zelfstandigen worden de muziekscholen nu aangeschoten wild voor SABAM. Net voor de vakantiesluiting heeft SABAM immers een brief gestuurd met de melding dat de jaarbijdragen voor het gebruik van muziek verhogen."

New website and logo on line!



copy/paste in the cc-way

This is a test i did with the latest blog from the CC headquarters, and it works well (see last part):

"If you�re one of the couple dozen people who copied text off our blog yesterday, you may have noticed some more text accompany your clipboard when you pasted it � a link to our site and the license (Attribution) we�ve offered our content under. This is because we�ve installed Tynt�s Tracer tool on our blog which uses a bit of javascript wizardry to concatenate attribution and, as of now, particular CC license information to content copied from our site.

If you�re curious about how this works, try selecting some text from anywhere on our blog and pasting it somewhere. Rich text editors (such as most WYSIWYG HTML editors, or Gmail) will preserve the hyperlink but the text will also show up in standard plain text editors as well.

As a creator and contributor to the commons, you have the right to attribution (all six of our licenses require it), so why not make it easy for your audience to automatically provide it?

...

And don�t worry, the extra markup is just text. Nothing about Tynt�s tool forces reusers to do anything, its merely useful additional information providing proper attribution and license notification."

wow!


Definitely one of the surprises from 2009: a consistent high level, well balanced album, with post modern hints at the 70's era, without falling in post-rock cliches.

one for the road

damaged me by DJ Orbique & akustikfilm from rec72 on Vimeo.

The song "damaged me" by DJ Orbique is taken from the album "Corrupted Loops for Damaged Bots" being released on rec72 Netlabelectronica. The videoclip was produced by akustikfilm. You can download the entire album for free at rec72.net.



The video footage "Bombing Hamburg in WW II" was found on archive.org. This clip does not glorify WW II nor any atrocities taken place. Please keep this in mind watching the clip!

pay it again, Sam!


ASCAP, the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, appears to believe that every time your musical ringtone rings in public, you're violating copyright law by "publicly performing" it without a license. Read the analysis by the Electric Fontier Foundation why this is wrong, and a second comment on the doublespeak by ASCAP.
