Sexualy Explicit Material: Good or Evil?


Created by Seth Gullion
The following interviews were filmed, edited, and finished in about two hours. Despite the lack of polish, I was able to obtain some interesting opinions concerning sexually explicit material on the web. Expect a similar style of interviews, with better editing, for the upcoming video blog covering the Network Publics conference this weekend. Many thanks to my dear friends Christyn and Brock for being such good sports.

Why Creative Commons?

Creative Commons
Created by Pierson Clair
In this era of digital technology increasing at a rapid pace, it is important to think about the licenses that restrict digital innovation. While copyright may be good for some works, it is important to realize that this is not the only option. Lawrence Lessig has created the Creative Commons license to allow people to release content into the "public domain" without any legal ramifications. Watch this vidcast to learn more about the advances that the Creative Commons license is making in internet content production.

Teaching an Old 'Toon New Tricks


Created by Seth Gullion
This video remix mashup project samples audio from a presentation by Lawrence Lessig and remixes it using public domain vintage cartoons and music from the Newgrounds audio portal. I wanted to make a remix video that presented Lessig’s arguments in a new and entertaining way without obscuring the original message or subtracting from the power of the original words. This video also is a great example of what can be accomplished using material from the creative commons and public domain. Using both old and new media, I’ve created a compelling, creative work without fear of legal retribution. Half the fun of this video will be trying to figure out what symbols and characters represent in Lessig’s discussion on copyright law and piracy, but I’ll provide some guidelines to help aid you. The golden goose/coins/eggs are meant to represent new technologies, and the potential they hold for creative work. The protagonists (Felix and Popeye) are either Lessig or copyright holders, etc., while the pirates are ‘pirates’ and general opposition. The rest should be fairly self-explanatory.

Here is the media that I sampled and remixed: Play Videocast
