Freeloading.... Chris Ruen and David Byrne - 05/12/2013

I shall be interviewing Chris Ruen on my radio show on May 21st (http://www.PWRTalk.com) but in the meantime, this film of Chris talking with David Byrne (of Talking Heads) about copyright infringement is both entertaining and enlightening. I hope that Chairman Goodlatte and the good persons currently deciding whether copyright laws protect creators and artists are paying attention. Please take the time to go to this site   to locate contact information by your own zip code for your representatives in Congress, then write to them about the need for greater protections for copyright owners in the internet age. If the embed code does not work, here is the link http://www.nypl.org/audiovideo/music-and-copyright-digital-era-david-byrne-conversation-chris-ruen One of the most striking anecdotes was when Chris Ruen explained how, as a barrista in a coffee shop where musicians congregated, he noticed that they had less money than he did, and he started to question his ideas about ripping off musicians. By the way, here are some articles about Copyright. http://www.politico.com/story/2013/04/the-copyright-and-concerns-of-content-creators-90219.html http://www.huffingtonpost.com/sandra-aistars/google-copyright-infringement_b_2782520.html http://thehill.com/blogs/congress-blog/economy-a-budget/288763-protect-rights-of-artists-in-new-copyright-law Best wishes, Rowena Cherry http://rpc.technorati.com/rpc/ping rowena cherry
