Re: Copyright vs Copywrong

I'm at least consistent. Doug told me to create Frank's Pinocchio. If Doug felt so much about copyright protection for corporate America he would say there should be no public domain, ever. Let's tally up this short paragraph: One: I didn't tell you to create Frank's Pinocchio. I said you and Disne...

Re: Copyright vs Copywrong

Diane's point is, from a historical perspective, a fair one. Close it, and we'll wind up with asides and such everywhere else. At least if the thread is here, if there are parties that absolutely need to touch on the topic, there's a rain barrel it can be drowned in, and people can be justly told to...

Re: Copyright vs Copywrong

No body here can make a case that 28 years is not an adequate amount of time for protections. That case has been made repeatedly. This thread is full of them. Go re-read our "Free the Work, Fuck the Artist" exchange from January 2013 if you need an example. ALSO - Yes, Disney has made fil...

Re: Copyright vs Copywrong

How is an artist being ripped off when they get a special right I cannot get? That's like asking, "How can people be dying of gunshot wounds when they have access to vitamins I don't?" What a silly false equivalence. That said, you DO enjoy that right. Remember how you said once that you ...

Re: Adventures in Eating

This is the first autumn in Houston that I've gotten to forage for nuts from our pecan trees; we have two old beauties, one on the corner easement (technically the city's, but I've kept it alive through a drought and two aphid infestations, so I invoke the time-honored tradition of "dibs")...

Re: Copyright vs Copywrong

I'm just going to point out that Frank was good with ignoring my last couple of posts until he read that I wasn't going to feed his need for attention any longer. Then, suddenly, I existed - because I might stop paying attention to him and his hyperbole, and boy, he craves that. So he threw up a com...

Re: Copyright vs Copywrong

My feeling is Frank's not interested in facts. He's interested in believing he's right. So it doesn't matter how many people around him who actually engage in the creative arts might have actual stories of theft of intellectual property - Lessig is right because he agrees with Lessig. It doesn't mat...

Re: Copyright vs Copywrong

Useful art just means that if someone knows their copyright will run out sometime soon they have to create more art to sell or give to society. Admit it, Frank - you really have no idea what the Founders meant by "useful Arts". None. Nada. In your mind, the entire notion of copyright isn'...

Re: Copyright vs Copywrong

Public good always outweighs individuals. More rhetoric to gloss over that you have no actual working examples of your philosophy - not one blessed "useful art" that came from "the public" using something in the public domain - that would support the veracity of how you claim it...

Re: Copyright vs Copywrong

That's my main point. Frank, this phrase has spilled off your lips for so many different facets of the copyright discussion that it is meaningless. You should stop using it as a rhetorical tool. It's like a red flag for silliness. I thought you supported the copyright cops You realize that there we...

Re: Robert Nason's Culture Café

Frank, I think "hyperbolic" is another one of those words for which you don't understand the meaning. Nothing Steve said was hyperbolic. The precedent that has been set is very real, and he dealt with it in a very even-handed manner. While this: China is buying New York. is blatant hyperbo...

Re: Whatcha listening to?

Listening to George Harrison's ALL THINGS MUST PASS while writing 160 photo album captions. Sure, it's the album known most for "My Sweet Lord" and "What Is Life" but there's so much more going on behind the two singles - the raw shin-kick of "Wah-Wah" (his swipe at McC...

Re: Adventures in Eating

Do you eat pig parts like heart or snout or some such? Depends on the restaurant/butcher. Revival Market (which makes their own charcuterie here in Houston) has a fabulous in-house head cheese. I expect there are miscellaneous bits that also wind up in their variety of sausages. But the various org...

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

Nudge, nudge, orphaned works.

Actually not an orphaned work, but you need to figure out why on your own.
