The Ballad Of Zack McCune – An RIAA lawsuit tale.
Something nice in the inbox today: A video series making good use of my music and the Non Commercial Creative Commons license I offer to all, on a topic I find very engaging.
In April of last year, Zack McCune was sued by the RIAA. He ended up $3,000 lighter (he settled), but with a much richer understanding of the contemporary debate surrounding music, copyright law, and file sharing. Part I gives an intro to his story, while Part II explores the disconnect between young downloaders and the recording industry. Part III, presented here, concludes Zackâ€™s misadventure and examines where it led him: to the Free Culture Movement, which advocates more flexible intellectual property law.
