 Free Culture NYC Summit + Creative Commons Copyright Criminals Remix Contest

 December 25, 2005 @ 2:03 am        Filed under News

 Hope everyone is enjoying their holiday breaks. Free Culture will be
 back with some meetings soon once the spring semester starts, but I
 wanted to post two reminders.

 First, Free Culture.org is hosting a New York City Regional Summit on
 January 13th and 14th at Columbia. Please register immediately if you
 are in the academic community in the area, as we need to start making
 arrangements for free food and other resources. NYU's own Siva
 Vaidhyanathan will be speaking and we'll have some folks from Creative
 Commons attending for a workshop on CC on campuses.

 Second, check out Creative Common's Copyright Criminals Remix Contest:

 This is a contest for artists to mix audio tracks under 4 minutes
 which use provided voice samples from Ben Franzen and Kembrew McLeod?s
 forthcoming film, "Copyright Criminals". Samples from the film include
 voiceovers from De La Soul, DJ Qbert, members of Public Enemy, Matmos,
 Coldcut, members of Negativland, and others. The best overall winner
 will be included prominently in the film and the top 11 other entries
 are to be included on a companion CD.

 I'm sure it will turn out some great stuff, so keep an eye on the page.

 Anyway, happy new years, and see you at the summit!
