Roma, August 7th 2006. For the first time in Italy, Siae (the Italian
collecting society) [ http://www.siae.it ], with a non-expiring
resolution active from July 25th 2006, (documento protocollato presso
l'Ufficio Multimedialità al nr. 1/290/06/FDP) recognizes the
opportunity and right for the public playing of ambient music inside a
commercial space, without compensation to be paid, thanks to the
adoption of copyleft licensing schemes (like CC, Art Libre, Copyzero
x, Clausola Copyleft) or in the public domain. Inside the ice cream
shop Fiordiluna [ http://www.fiordiluna.com ], in the heart of the
Trastevere district in Rome, there is a multimedia space (32" lcd
monitor and Bose speaker system) managed by a Linux pc with free
software on it, through which audio, video and literary works with
copyleft-like licenses or in the public domain are publicly played.
This major historical achievement has been made possible by the work
of Ermanno Pandoli (Giapster [ http://www.wumingfoundation.com ] and
Quindicino [ http://www.iquindici.org/ ]) who is a member of the
Liberius digital window [
http://www.frontieredigitali.net/index.php/Liberius_%28en%29 ] of the
FrontiereDigitali] network [ http://www.frontieredigitali.net ] and
who has represented the Fiordiluna ice-creamery to Siae. Those
interested in exposing their works inside the ice-creamery may inform
the relevant groups inside the FrontiereDigitali network [
]. To obtain more information on the legal and logitical procedures to
follow it is also possible to contact the  Liberius digital window [
