    "Techdirt has written many times about the way in which copyright only ever seems to get stronger, and how different jurisdictions point to other examples of excessive copyright to justify making their own just as bad. In Chile, there's an interesting example of that kind of copyright ratchet being applied in the same country but to different domains. It concerns audiovisual works, and aims to give directors, screenwriters and others new rights to "match" those that others enjoy"

How to win the copyleft fight-without litigation | Opensource.com - 0 views

    Interview with Bradley Kuhn, Software Freedom Conservancy The Software Freedom Conservancy's Bradley Kuhn is probably best known for his work in enforcing the GNU General Public License (GPL). Enforcement-by-litigation might get the headlines, but Kuhn treats the courts as a last resort. A regular OSCON speaker, he returns this year to share the story of a project that avoided the courtroom. I recently spoke to Kuhn about his talk and the free software landscape at large."

Copyleft: Pragmatic Idealism - GNU Project - Free Software Foundation - 0 views

  •  
    "by Richard Stallman Every decision a person makes stems from the person's values and goals. People can have many different goals and values; fame, profit, love, survival, fun, and freedom, are just some of the goals that a good person might have. When the goal is a matter of principle, we call that idealism. My work on free software is motivated by an idealistic goal: spreading freedom and cooperation. I want to encourage free software to spread, replacing proprietary software that forbids cooperation, and thus make our society bette"

Copyright, Copyleft y Creative Commons, la jungla de los derechos de autor - OvToaster - 0 views

  •  
    "Piratear contenido digital es algo cada vez mas perseguido y condenado, descargas ilegales, cierres de paginas webs, denuncias de grandes empresas y gobiernos…. todo esto se a vuelto el día a día del contenido digital, pero no todo en Internet funciona bajo una misma licencia, aprender a diferenciar los diferentes derechos de autor que existen nos puede servir para saber cuando podemos utilizar cierto contenido sin problemas y cuando no. Todo el mundo conoce la famosa Copyright, pero esta no es la única opción que existe, también están las licencias Copyleft y Creative Commons. En este articulo vamos a intentar explicar el funcionamiento de estas licencias junto a los pros y contras de cada una."

How to choose a license for your open source project | opensource.com - 1 views

  •  
    "The open source license you choose for your project, or for the projects you choose to contribute to, can have significant effects on how what you contribute is used. One question that has garnered quite a bit of interest recently is the fall in popularity of copyleft licenses in favor of permissive licenses. An article last year looked at the issue of large number of projects on GitHub that have no explicit license and posited the question about whether we live in a 'post open source software' world, where seemingly open source software has no license. After some time, GitHub agreed that licensing is important and worked to improve the situation with a license chooser."

What's New in 4.0 - Creative Commons - 2 views

  •  
    "Creative Commons worked for more than two years to develop the next generation of CC licenses - the version 4.0 CC license suite. The new licenses are more user-friendly and more internationally robust than ever before. We made dozens of improvements to the licenses. Most will go unnoticed by many CC licensors and licensees, but some of them deserve particular attention. For a much more in-depth rundown of the decisions reflected in 4.0, visit the 4.0 page on the Creative Commons wiki."

La música libre escapa de la SGAE - Público.es - 0 views

  •  
    "¿Por qué un establecimiento debe pagar un canon a la SGAE por la totalidad de la música que reproduce en su local si sólo el 14% de la misma se corresponde a autores representados por esta entidad? Daniela Valdés, propietaria del bar Espiral Pop , en Madrid, hace tiempo que intenta no utilizar música cuyos derechos de autor son gestionados por la SGAE. Mientras utiliza canciones con licencia copyleft contribuye al conocimiento público de unos artistas que no suelen escucharse en los medios tradicionales. A la vez, como impone la lógica, no está obligada a abonar la cuota correspondiente a la SGAE por la comunicación pública de las obras musicales de sus socios. "
