This is an older "copyleft" video that came out of Denmark in 2007. As it is new to me, I am going to share it with you now. It is very interesting and a unique perspective on the other side of the copyright argument. Including some very interesting speculation on ways to monetize music "in the future" that are being actualized now. Interesting.
The first ever A2IM (American Association of Independent Music) licensing day happened here in Twang-town last Tuesday, September 11 at 3rd and Lindsley. By all accounts the event was a great success and a fantastic first step to bringing the Nashville creative licensing community closer. Attendees came from as far as Indiana and Georgia representing the lion's share of the fantastic Indy Labels and publishers in the Nashville/mid-south area. Panels were split into two topics: Film and TV Licensing and Advertising and Branding. Both panels were chock full of great talent from the local and surrounding communities. Below are a breakdown of panels/panelists as well as a few pics from the event. We will be re-establishing the quarterly "Syncs and Drinks" licensing happy hours with the help of A2IM. Local creatives, look for your invites in your inbox coming soon!!!

Fascinating video regarding copyright "maximists" and the further extension of the US Copyright law (hello Mickey)... http://youtu.be/rFMl0stqai0
