Introduction 

Dear QuestionCopyright.org Supporter,

Thanks for taking the time to read our new newsletter. In this edition, we are going to update you on our ongoing and forthcoming projects and also let you know how you can continue to support the work of free culture artists and innovators, and help reframe public discussion of copyright.

We hope you like what you see and are encouraged to be an even greater part of building a world where artists know that their audiences are their best supporters and their best distributors -- and where the phrase "free culture" becomes increasingly redundant.

Testing the Kickstarter waters: support Nina Paley's new booklet!

economics of artQCO Artist-in-Residence Nina Paley

Our artist-in-residence Nina Paley has started her first Kickstarter project -- help her make her goal!

The result will be great little booklets that you can pass out to friends and colleagues who have questions about copyright.  When ready, they'll be available from our store and, of course, they'll be freely-licensed.  We're planning to use Kickstarter for some other upcoming projects too; help us get started on the right foot, and help support Nina!

 

Here's her description of the project:

I want to print at least a thousand Mimi & Eunice's Intellectual Pooperty mini-books: Mimi & Eunice IP comics packaged into a 5.25" x 3.5" full-color 20-page booklet. The size is perfect for carrying in a wallet or purse, to conveniently produce whenever a conversation about art, culture and commerce starts going to crazy-town. How many times have you wanted to explain the problems of copyright simply and clearly? How many times have you longed to deflate pro-patent propaganda, but gotten into a convoluted abstract argument instead? Having these little books on hand can turn a heated debate into a friendly and entertaining conversation. I know, because I carry a prototype with me.
