Let's make something together! Using free resources available online we can create free culture, share it with our friends and have fun remixing.
Today keeping culture free and open is increasingly difficult due to the excessive power of copyright law in the hands of corporations. Technological advances such as the Internet and the Web combined with our outdated copyright law make sharing and creating culture online a crime. This project aims to return culture to the hands of people from the current corporate lock down. Learn more at freeculture.org
The Internet was created with the idea in mind to share information and knowledge and in 1994 the World Wide Web was born empowering users to share even more. Today due to outdated copyright laws the same sharing that is perfectly legal in the physical world is considered a crime online. Learn more watching an animation about the history of the Internet.
In the United States copyright is automatic. This means that when you create a piece of art, piece of music or other creative work the law automatically copyrights/protects your work. By current law your creative work will be protected during your life plus 70 years so if you want to share your work and allow others to use it you can donate it to the public domain, use copyleft or a creative commons license.
