Copying Is Not Theft

  1. Arrangements of a little ditty by Nina Paley
    <http://www.freesoftwaremagazine.com/columns/question_copyrights_minute_memes_challenge_copyright_rhetoric>.

    If you’ve never heard of Nina Paley, she made a movie earlier last year,
    called “Sita Sings The Bluesâ€, and found it essentially impossible to get
    copyright clearance for some of the music on any kind of reasonable terms.
    Eventually she decided to simply release the film for free download
    <http://techdirt.com/articles/20090824/1723375986.shtml>.

    And surprisingly (or perhaps not to some), she actually made money as a
    result.
