The scene, intellectual property and double standards

category: offtopic [glöplog]
gargaj: just wanted people to reflect a bit on their own reactions and feelings around "theft", "borrowing" and reuse. Figured it'd be easier to do this by using myself as a case study, since noone should feel they are being attacked that way.
Wasn't able to suppress the need to point out the obvious fact that people who are actively in the warez scene shouldn't be surprised that intellectual property rights are being infringed upon. "There's no honor among thieves".

also.. this is a pre-emptive measure for the pouet thread you will create when you realize that all my tracks are just edits of your tracks with added distortion and rap vocals :D

What is this? I thought you had Morten Harket over to do some vocals, lug00ber.

+1 lug00ber and gloom in your replies to garg for much laughter on my part which I sorely needed today.

so there is a huge difference from taking shit to create shit from taking shit and making money on it

thec: it is, yes. That's also why f.ex. Creative Commons has separate licenses for the purpose to distinguish between those specific cases.

actually creative commons has been discussing deprecating the NC ND parts of the license.

it might sound radical at first glance but they wrote an interesting blog post / article about it, and it does seem to make some sense. atleast to me.

So CC is going the GPL way... what a pitty =/
Beeing not that radical/restricted was what made CC most appealing for many

It's just free culture zealots doing their thing. Nothing to see here, move along to some other license.
