Hello List (and share folk)
I have a question regarding the possibility of setting up a workshop/
Q.A. session for an interactive/performance art collective in New
I am one of the longtime members of Share (http://share.dj), "a
weekly open multimedia jam and community for portable performers",
and wed like to learn about Copyright/left, and the creative commons
licensing (and how best to use it) in our context.
Basically, every sunday we host a free event that is open to the
public for live audio and video jamming. People bring laptops,
homemade electronics, sensors, custom software, etc, and join a
collaborative realtime improved performance. We occasionally host
workshops for audio and video, programming languages, etc, and would
love for a Creative Commons representative, or anyone qualified in
copyright law to possibly give a small workshop on Copyright (and
left!). Basically, we are curious what we as a community need to be
aware of in our environment (an open to the public, live,and
importantly recorded jam session type environment), and what the
public joining the jam should be made aware of. We would want to
record this workshop, and share it with the world as well. Wed like
to begin posting our extensive audio archive online, and would want
to document and record parts of our upcoming nights. Obviously, since
this is an open to the public event, we have to worry about
disclaimers, people playing their (and others) copyrighted material.
Im sure you can see where this gets complicated!
Our website has creative commons licensed material (and the content
management system that drives it will soon be an open source-creative
commons powered project..), We love what Creative Commons is doing
and most of us feel its right in line with what we are all about, but
none of us are fully qualified to speak about any of these issues to
our community in a knowledgeable way. Our project is growing (there
is now a Share event in Montreal), and we have received non-profit
status/coverage from NYFA and would like to start fund raising,
larger event planning, etc. So I woudl imagine we have to prepare for
some sort of legal foundation to protect ourselves. Ive tried to
arrange for a member of the EFF to possibly speak, but unfortunately
that has fallen though. Since the Creative Commons are arts oriented,
I'd imagine you all would have a good foundation for helping us.
If anyone has any suggestions, would like to help out, or has any
pointers in general, please let me or the share administrators know
( admin at share.dj ).
Thanks again, and I look forward to hearing from you all.
