There are a lot of concerning issues developing around copyright at the moment–ACTA, the Digital Economy Bill, the three strikes policy whack-a-mole in various countries, and more.
As part of its educational and advocacy work, QuestionCopyright.org is producing a series of 1 Minute Memes. These are the fine folks who helped Nina Paley in her struggle to clear the necessary rights to release her wonderful film, “Sita Sings the Blues”.
Not surprisingly, the first video in the series is a new animation by Nina. However, the work is incomplete and in the same free-to-share spirit with which Nina released “Sita”, she and QuestionCopyright.org are asking for your help.
The placeholder video really needs a kick ass musical track. You can see the lyrics and the draft video on its home page. The high resolution version of the video is being hosted at the Internet Archive and is being shared under a CC-BY-SA license, so you are free to go beyond just adding the music, if you like, as long as you maintain attribution and share your changes under the same license. You are even free to make some money of your remix if you want.
