Open with a video that is similar to the Sarah McLachlan/abused animals video.
Narrate all the losses the industry has ‘suffered’Zooming in slowly on pictures of business men in suits, looking sadShow how according to the RIAA, piracy is to blame So please, won’t you turn yourself in? Find it in your heart to let us sue you for a small fee of $150,000 per song… your money will go towards helping people like him.”Slide3
“Do you pirate music?”Everyone says “Yes”Cut to an animated circle graph that relates to my narration saying, “the age group between 15-24 usually always pirates, which is 20% of the population.” Cut back to street interviews: “If I were actually from the RIAA, I could’ve easily made over $700,000 within an hour. But at least they’re protecting musicians right? These people deserve to be sued!Especially the 12 year old girl from 2005 and a dead grandmother. Especially Joel Tennenbaum.Show news paper article headings with RIAAs awards. Go into split screen and juxtapose with archived video of pirates.Slide4

interview with Bob Kerr, a free open source evangelist for Scotland –
bout what piracy is. He ends saying, “you just need to know which p2p clients to use”
Show my 2 bands talking about how they pirate music
First band, City of
takes pride in pirating
From Bob Kerr, it cuts to one of the city of
members naming all the torrent sites and clients they use.
The other band, at first, seems like they don’t pirate music. Then one member slowly admits that he does it.Slide7
Go back to Bob Kerr who is talking more about the lawsuits.
Mention the dead grandmothers and 12 year old girls who got sued through narration and news stories (
video and newspaper articles)
Reasons other than piracy:…they’re overpriced, you can scratch them, lose them, they’re bulky, waste space, etc.Slide8
Me asking a bunch of people if they want some free CDs as I carry around a box of CDs from WPRK.
No one takes any. Back to Bob KerrAnother huge reason for the RIAA’s account of losses is their bad publicitySlide9
Talk about the happy birthday song
Clip from me inside of the restaurant where they’re singing different versions of “happy birthday”
Narration on how the law requires you to pay royalties, but not to the 2 sisters who wrote it – but to

Animated graphs with statistics based loosely on what he’s saying, but use my own sources to prove he’s legitimate
, it’s not just a protocol. They’re a
company based in the US. The investors are
partners, DAG, doll capital management
, Microsoft, del computers,
was the major investor of
– one of the largest owners of the company.
Are we all just pawns?Slide14
Interview with 2 bands
They were both really confused
Guy from crazy
said “there’s no way they were both behind, but if they were, they’d be really angry”Slide15
Back to narration about SOPA/PIPA
Why didn’t the RIAA sue
The RIAA said because its owned by most of the large corporations in America
But when Viacom sued
, they said
is a notorious pirate system.
Show their sworn testimony from court in animated lettering
“Thus, the founders consciously aimed to attract users by emulating notorious pirate services like “
,” and “
.” SUF 7 29Slide16
Show screen shots of their website where it says, “Jarl

provides a very effective and secure P2P platform to distribute content to their audience. (2007)
They were sued in France, but not America. They changed their name to

of all the
is on the board of directors of Viacom, board of directors of artist direct –media defender, the people who were finding copyright infringers to bring them to justice.
Time for CBS/CNET to pay $150,000 per infringed work…not moms and kids
So… lets go sue them!!!
“Lets go sue them” song that I made plays - a quirky intro to a fake series.Slide18
Video of me going to the courthouse here in Orlando
I’m about to walk in, but they don’t let cameras inAlso, I realize I don’t have a lawyer“GIVE ME CNET’S MONEY!” I arranged a little protest of 3 people, “WHAT DO WE WANT? CNETS MONEY! WHEN DO WE WANT IT? RELATIVELY SOON!” Freeze everything, “Stop”Enter narration Say, instead of fighting fire with fire, is there another option?Maybe we can just get along?Slide19
Talk about free culture
Narration about Lawrence
with videos from his conferences
Discuss creative commons and their aim
Discuss findings about creativity, how money doesn’t increase it
Clips from city of
who say money should never be the main concern
, “Yeah, money is nice – I’d love to make a living from doing what I love the most, but I know it’s a bit difficult these days. Passion should be the number 1 drive.”Slide20
bands like piracy
they can make music better with things like
, remixes, etc.
Compare this to jimmy Hendrix, who used new technology and changed the music world – use images of him?
Democratization of music
Anyone can do it
it away from the major labels who are producing formulaic
“band interview, city of
, “I can’t stand the radio because it’s all the same… and it’s all too perfect. Imperfection is nice. You don’t hear vulnerability, humanity, passion…” other member, “I love the radio” – he makes a really serious face, the band starts laughing together.
Talk about the different kinds of licensing, and websites where you are free to do things like share videos and musicSlide22
Interview with bands, “are there any dangers to letting anyone with $1,500 make and upload music?”
Both bands seemed to agree that there’d be a certain extent of mediocrity flooding the internet, so it would make it harder for talent to break through. It seems like your talent is dependent upon how many clicks you get. Not only that, the mp3 has kind of made music less exciting.
, “I remember getting so excited about holding a CD and reading from front to back all of the lyrics or information and pictures they’d include. Now its just a digital file that tells you the song, artist, album, length, etc.”Slide23
, “Live shows are
keep music fun. Mp3s don’t stand out, its very flat
When you have it live, there are many more dimensions. You can escape more”
Show footage of the bands performing and fans enjoying music
The band must approach the audience differently to be more human, good way to connect
Show the Crazy
don’t know if I should focus more on free culture, or on why the RIAA is bad, and big corporations, and look more towards things like SOPA/PIPA
Where do I put this? Should I include this?
History of copyright
Once upon a time, everything was free to be built upon
Then the printing press, ideas could spread around the globe
The first copyright law came from here, but it was supposed to promote creativity.
Over the years, copying machines kept getting better, and new laws came with them.
Talk about Disney, how he copied everything and made them ‘better.’
