Can the film industry learn from the music industry to stop piracy? - Tech Digest | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Over the weekend we heard the news that Sony Pictures has been hacked by a group known as “GOP” (who aren’t the same people as the US Republican “Grand Old Party”, presumably). GOP claims to have stolen many of Sony’s “secrets”, including copies of films that haven’t been released, or at least released outside of cinemas yet.

Songcoin Wants to Be Music's Alternative Currency - Billboard | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The alternative currency phenomenon is real, as weird as that might feel to those of us who would never consider shelling out cash for points to buy special pixels for that Farmville game we never really got around to playing. Bitcoin, despite the issues mentioned below, shows that alternative currencies can become quite real to certain people, which can then make them real enough in general, causing them to take on a value of their own outside the traditional financial system.

Gabriel Alejandro Del Valle's curator insight, January 16, 2014 2:58 PM

The most interesting article is this one. It shows how musicians life are changing because they cant make money off music like they used to. Piracy has beaten all artist by allowing people to download music for free. I actually agree that the Music Industry is dying do to piracy and its hard to actually make a living with music. But on the other end music will never die as long as consumers can still listen.

Peer production and changing norms in music practice: An ethnomusicological perspective » Journal of Peer Production

Peer production and changing norms in music practice: An ethnomusicological perspective » Journal of Peer Production | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The rise of peer production and the notion of the produser (Bruns 2009) have contributed to changes in a number of expectations and social norms surrounding the creation, sharing, and use of music. These include an expectation that recorded music will be cheap, if not free; a familiarity with media creation and manipulation as regular activities; and acceptance of widespread copying and sharing. As a result there have been significant challenges to traditional ideas of authorship, ownership, artistic control, creative roles, and income from music. Media discussion and scholarship on peer production comes mainly from the Global North and is usually urban centred, with a focus on particular kinds of music as somehow ‘naturally’ central. Associated technology and social practices have driven these changes; from the Internet, personal computers to smartphones. Although no doubt unintended, this has the consequence of placing the effects of such phenomena on the Global South as peripheral, despite the fact that much of the technology is created in Asia, and distributed globally in places where Internet access is growing rapidly.

What makes a “maker”? By definition, the term can apply to artists, crafters, and anyone who creates anything. But the past decade has seen a more specific “maker movement” emerge amongst nerds and techies, one focused on making mediums like electronics, robotics, and 3D printing more accessible for hobbyists, connecting the dots between open-source tech projects and Etsy-centered handmade craft culture.

Antonio Abbatiello's curator insight, October 11, 2014 12:25 PM

I enjoyed this article because it spoke about the differences between iTunes pirating and the newest addition music streaming. I believe this is a credible source because it was published in Forbes magazine which is a very credible source. I believe that Forbes is a good source for audio industry professionals because it speaks about the business side of the industry. I chose this article because it shows how the industry has gone from hard copies of albums to a device that is able to find any song by just searching.

All That Is Not Given Is Lost: Irish Traditional Music, Copyright, and Common Property

All That Is Not Given Is Lost: Irish Traditional Music, Copyright, and Common Property | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Irish music in a traditional idiom finds itself in the best of times and the worst of times. On the one hand Irish traditional music has become a global phenomenon, lending its symbolic and commercial weight, replete with what Irish cultural historian Luke Gibbons calls, “the communal Prozac of the heritage industry” (1996:172), to anything from Riverdance™ to Xena,™ Warrior Princess and its ethereal glances of uilleann pipe inciden­tals. Commercially speaking, the music has never been as popular, a boon for those determined to make a living playing the music that they live by. On the other hand we find that the embedded cultural practices and val­ues that have supported the transmission and life of the music are being threatened as a result of the very embeddedness, their being taken for grant­ed, that has guaranteed their lack of articulation thus far.

The Piracy Crusade | University of Massachusetts Press | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

In the decade and a half since Napster first emerged, forever changing the face of digital culture, the claim that “internet pirates killed the music industry” has become so ubiquitous that it is treated as common knowledge. Piracy is a scourge on legitimate businesses and hard-working artists, we are told, a “cybercrime” similar to identity fraud or even terrorism.
