Copyright Is Brain Damage, Freedom of Speech Begins at Home: Nina Paley Speaks at TEDxMaastricht.

This 18-minute talk is by far the best explanation I've seen yet of why you should question copyright.

In the last few years, I've watched QCO Artist-in-Residence Nina Paley refine her message about the harm of copyright and permission culture. Now it's the most direct and most effective it's ever been. If you want just one video to show people to explain to them what this movement is about, let this be the one. Nina tells an appreciative audience why she had to set her mind free in order to make art, and shows some wonderful clips from her next film Seder-Masochism — a film that simply couldn't be made within the permission culture that Nina diagnoses so eloquently:


Free-culture Project "Lunatics!" is back on Kickstarter

After an additional year of production work, our free-film project "Lunatics!" is back up on Kickstarter. We have a lot more done - some "finished" animation, voice acting and soundtrack mixing, a lot more completed 3D models, including some of the toughest mech modeling, and several characters. We are still 100% free-culture, using CC By-SA license for everything we release, and we're still open-source, making our models and other elements available to the commons. We use only music with By-SA compatible licenses, and we are working entirely with free-software, especially Blender, Kdenlive, and Audacity.
