Copyright And Creativity: Public Talks and Downloads

A famous illegal art compilation, Stay Free, was recently made available for download on archive.org. Well worth a listen, and the liner notes are worth a read too. Found via waxy.org. Example track?

Steinski & Mass Media “The Motorcade Sped On”
Steven Stein created this cut-up of Kennedy assassination coverage. His label, Tommy Boy, was unable to officially release it because CBS refused to grant clearance for the use of Walter Cronkite’s voice. It was instead released as a white label 12-inch single in 1986.

And the rest, each song surrounded by copyright controversy of some sort…
