Copyright User: online resource for UK content producers

"We aim to provide answers to the most pressing concerns that creators have about copyright. To find out what was most confusing to users, we took two approaches. First, we analysed the 200 most frequently asked questions about copyright posted online by creators and consumers, and we filtered those down to the most important 20 which you can find answered in the 'FAQs' section. Second, we spoke to creators themselves. For each of the main artistic mediums we produced a video which contains interviews with creators about their artistic process, thoughts and questions about copyright."

Copy and Paste Literacy: Literacy practices in the production of a MySpace profile

"If 'participation' is a socially oriented word that challenges the consumption/production dichotomy, then 'remix' may be its technical counterpart to bridge the reading/writing dichotomy. The word 'remix,' originally used to describe the mixing of music samples, has itself been appropriated over the past few years to describe the mixing of a variety of media forms to create new products.17 The Pew Internet and American Life Project used the word 'remix' on a recent study (Lenhart and Madden 2005) of teen content creation, implying the creation of new 'artistic' content from prior media forms.18 But there is no reason to constrain 'remixing' practices to the development of 'artistic' creations as that study defines the term. 19 If 'remixing' is used to describe the technical practices required to blend text, images, video, audio, and games in the creation and maintenance of a MySpace profile, the perception of 'simple' technical feats of copying and pasting links to media, turn into socially complex chains of appropriations of media between people.

Remixing distinguishes itself from typical notions of 'reading' and 'writing.' It parallels Ito's view that participation, 'leads to a conceptualization of the imagination as collectively rather than individually experienced and produced' (5) in that remixing media by copying and pasting is a collective technical practice; people's creations are dependent on each other in many different ways. To adapt diSessa's vocabulary, one could see remixing as a sign of a new, networked material intelligence. Through MySpace and sites like it, knowing how to re–use media in this way, socially and technically, has become foundational for communication and creative expression over the web."
