Copyright or copywrong?


'I would be bereft if Viacom succeeded in slimming or shutting YouTube down. Artists are not much bothered by its minor copyright infringements, as they were by file-swap sites, and Hollywood gets more promotion from it than violation. As an educational tool and creative resource, it has untold value' - The Lebrecht Weekly, June 25, 2008.

'The reproduction by whatever means of the whole or any part of any Image (including, without limitation, slide projection, artist's reference, artist's illustration, layout or presentation of Images) is strictly forbidden without our specific written permission' - Terms & Conditions of use of Lebrecht Photo Library, "The world's largest resource for music pictures and all the creative arts".

And Glenn Gould's copyright gets an extension here.

Meet Glenn Gould's (posthumous) simulacrum. Zenph is fascinating--I've been blogging about it a bit--and I still don't know where I stand. It makes money, so it's not going anywhere...I think some of us should take the Nancarrow approach and write for the HiRes MIDI/Yamaha grand. What's most crazy for me to think about is what may come next as far as a virtual performer...will Gould's virtual body play these reperformances pretty soon?

Mr Bacon's blog is well worth a visit.

It's refreshing to see another site that puts emphasis on visual content -
