Copyright Criminals Remix

Especially since they were responsible for my favorite single of '05 ("No Meaning No"), I thought I'd pass along some news from the good people at CCmixter.

"Creative Commons, along with filmmakers Kembrew McLeod and Ben Franzen, today announced that due to overwhelmingly positive response, the Copyright Criminals Remix Contest has been extended by two weeks, ending on March 14. Additionally, new vocal samples from influential rapper Chuck D (of Public Enemy) and pioneering funk musician George Clinton (of Parliament-Funkadelic) have been made available for use in the competition."

For more info, see their website at http://www.ccmixter.org. If you don't already know about this org, you should. Unlike Disney and their spineless servents in the U.S. Congress, this group is looking for a creative way to deal with copyright laws so that artists' rights are protected and other artists who want to incorporate their work can do so within mutually agreed-upon bounds.

PopMatters have been informed by our current technology provider that we have until December to move off their service. We are moving to WordPress and a new host, but we really need your help to fund the move and further development.
