Creative Archive - Fuel for a Creative Nation
Free Bitflows
Paula Le Dieu (04.06.2004)
Archives, more than ever, are a key component of the cultural landscape. In the context of individualized access and on-demand cultures, the live aspect of digital production has grown comparatively less important. The fact that more is being produced than anyone of us can access in real-time puts emphasis on ways to store, archive and retrieve cultural production after the fact. Last, but not least, in age where sampling and editing have become basic operations of cultural production, archives and open access to their treasures are central to cultural evolution. Commercially, the heightened value of archives has been recognized for a long time, and corporations like Corbis and GettyImages? have already privatized and commodified large parts of our (digitized) pictorial heritage. But what we need are archives that make their contents available freely and promiscuously, otherwise, experimental culture cannot flourish.
Universal Access to All Knowledge
Free Bitflows
Brewster Kahle (04.06.2004)
The goal of universal access to our cultural heritage is within our grasp. With current digital technology we can build comprehensive collections, and with digital networks we can make these available to students and scholars all over the world. The current challenge is establishing the roles, rights, and responsibilities of our libraries and archives in providing public access to this information. With these roles defined, our institutions will help fulfill this epic opportunity of our digital age.
Collecting Coins out of the Celestial Jukebox
Free Bitflows
Kristin Thomson (04.06.2004)
Alternative Compensation Systems, or ACS, is an idea that has been gaining a foothold in the academic and legal community in the past few years. The basic theory involves the creation of a pool of money collected through consumer-end taxes or fees on peer-to-peer enabling services.
Netlabels vs. Brick-and-Mortar-Distribution
Free Bitflows
Bjoern Hartmann (04.06.2004)
Comparing his experience within two spheres of the contemporary electronic music industry - the traditional offline channels for vinyl/cd publishing and online netlabels. He presents problems and perspectives for artists as well as independent label owners, focusing on on the central issue of fair compensation for both parties. As an affiliate of Creative Commons, he also highlights the importance of balanced copyright protection to the artistic community.

Session 4 Presentation, Compensation Decentral
In Favor of Collectively Managed Online Rights
Free Bitflows
Volker Grassmuck (04.06.2004)
Compensation Decentral Session:

Commons aspects are an inherent part of copyright. Where property control over the use of works proved infeasible or undesirable, Continental European lawmakers granted statutory permission to these uses and put a levy on devices and services as compensation to the authors. This system that worked well for forty years holds the solution for the digital online realm as well. What can not be controlled by means of technology and law enforcement must be permitted by law. A new levy on Internet access collectively managed by a new online collecting society provides compensation to authors. The result: works can freely circulate online, and the creatives receive a fair remuneration

The art of causing trouble: resistance to media monopolies
Free Bitflows
Marco Deseriis (03.06.2004)
It is not only a protocol or a technical standard to make the difference between a communication mode and another (broadcast vs Webcast, UHF versus TCP/IP). Power structures and historically rooted social formations shape independent networks and their relationship to mainstream media. Italian Telestreet or Indymedia Italy wouldn’t exist in their actual form without the Italian movements of the Seventies but also without Silvio Berlusconi’s media monopoly. Nevertheless, the “dictatorship of the audience”, or the “dictatorship of the majority”, has proved to a certain extent an autonomous machinery, able to affect and drive the political body (e.g. the Zapatero effect). The more the media machine models itself on the consumer-voter “desire” to participate (from reality shows to broadcasted live public events) the more media viruses and parasites have the opportunity to redirect these desires and audiences. If we want to be able to tell other stories that might interfere with the existing narratives, we need to blend the technical wisdom and the ability to open imaginary breaches that provoke a chain of reaction.

A Darknet Full of Friends
Free Bitflows
Janko Roettgers (03.06.2004)
The Future of File Sharing: Darknet Reloaded? Session 2
Darknets are increasingly seen as the future of P2P file sharing. Often people think of these networks as closed, enrcypted spaces with tight security measures and hierachic social architectures. At the same time there is another model emerging with websites like Friendster.com and Orkut.com: Networks that utilize the power of social links and challenge their users to make risk-based decisions. This could not only lock out the bad guys (tm), but also help to develop powerful collaborative filters.
The Freenet Project
Free Bitflows
Ian Clarke (03.06.2004)
The Freenet Project is creating software designed to ensure freedom of communication on the Internet. This is achieved through the creation of a completely decentralized emergent architecture which allows the anonymous publication and consumption of information through a peer-to-peer architecture. The Freenet software has been downloaded by over two million users worldwide, and is already in use in countries such as China to circumvent government censorship.
Digital Anonymity and the Law
Free Bitflows
Sjoera Nas (03.06.2004)
In the Sesion "The Future of File Sharing: Darknet Reloaded?" Sjoera Nas speaks about the possibilities for digital anonimity under the European privacy-directives, and gives some examples of projects in Europe to promote the actual use of anonimity and pseudonimity. Addressing the future of file-sharing, she presents an overview of the current and scheduled legal actions against European file-sharers.
The Future of File Sharing: Darknet Reloaded?
Free Bitflows
Public Netbase (03.06.2004)
Session 2: Panel with Sjoera Nas, Janko Roettgers, Ian Clarke Moderator: Felix Stalder
The famous Microsoft study concludes that the powers that be don't stand a chance to the reality of the so called "Darknet". A somewhat optimistic note from an unexpected side. At the same time, the legal and technical assault on file sharing and anonymity is in full swing. What is the future of free information exchanges? More anonymity? Or, on the contrary, will uncontrolled p2p disappear into social networks?
