Happy New Year, copyright questioners!
As some of you may have noticed, we spent a good deal of 2016 in hibernation. QCO is a volunteer-run organization, and sometimes those volunteers get busy with other stuff in their lives. Hard as it may be to believe, advocating against information monopoly does not pay the bills — we even had to pause renovation work at our global headquarters.
In 2017 we’re planning to continue our Artist-in-Residence program (which was quietly running all through 2016 and receiving donations — thank you to all who gave!) and ramp the Bookliberator project back up. BookLiberators are still in stock, and we hope to spread them far and wide.
That’s all for now. If this is year first time here, and you came here under the impression (as we all are, at first) that the copyright system is about supporting artists, please start with this.
