Remix Fairness, A Closer Look.

10/4/16

My friend and colleague Michael Branson Smith shared this great piece with our CT101 class this past week – Its very timely and speaks to artists of all kinds – “Andy Baio is a software developer for Kickstarter writes and speaks about his experience being sued by a photographer and is forced to settle and pay thousands of dollars. This is despite the fact he believes the law is on his side and so does his pro-bono counsel the EFF.”

Questions to address in the comments section below ::

  1. What did think about the presentation?

2. How has this presentation solidified or changed your point of view or awareness on the subject of remix and reuse culture?

3. How does this information effect the way you may or may not promote yourself as an artist on the web?
