Internet's "Free Culture" Advocate May Pay High Price
Economic Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A guy walks into a candy store and sees one of those "leave a penny, take a penny" trays. He picks it up, cups his hands, and asks, "What can I get for 68 cents?" That image came to mind with the case of Aaron Swartz, a twenty-four-year-old agitator for free access to information on the internet who managed to download more than 4 million articles and reviews onto his laptop computers from JSTOR, a subscription-only digital storehouse.

Jail? For Downloading Too Many Articles?
Copyright Librarian    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Last week, much conversation in my neck of the internet was about the arraignment of the activist and open-access advocate Aaron Swartz on federal charges of wire fraud and unauthorized network use. Most of the discussion was among geeklaw aficionados, and I'm surprised that the general library and higher-ed crowds seem not to be following the news too closely. The networks most deeply involved in the case are those of JSTOR, the not-for-profit service that hosts and archives hundreds of scholarly journals. More

NEA Announces New Research on the Value Added by Cultural Industries
National Endowment for the Arts    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Cultural industries are economic powerhouses and states have the data to prove it, according to a new analysis from the National Endowment for the Arts. Drawing on data from the Bureau of Economic Analysis, Arts and the GDP: Value Added by Selected Cultural Industries is a new NEA research note that examines the value added by three selected cultural industries: (1) performing arts, sports, and museums; (2) motion pictures and sound recording; and (3) publishing (including software). Combined, these three cultural industries contributed a total of $278.4 billion to the US economy in 2009. More

The Master's as the New Bachelor's
New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail
article
William Klein's story may sound familiar to his fellow graduates. After earning his bachelor's in history from the College at Brockport, he found himself living in his parents' home in Buffalo, working the same $7.25-an-hour waiter job he had in high school. It wasn't that there weren't other jobs out there. It's that they all seemed to want more education. More



Richard Prince-Patrick Cariou Copyright Suit Revealing Copywrongs
New York Observer    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In the case in which the art superstar Richard Prince, the megadealer Larry Gagosian, and Gagosian Gallery were all found to have jointly infringed the copyrighted images of the photographer Patrick Cariou, their appeal of the US District Court's March decision is having some trouble getting off the ground. That's because Cariou has moved to have any appeal tossed out. It's premature, his lawyers are arguing, because there hasn't yet been a jury trial to determine the damages Cariou suffered. More

Detroit Uses Purchase Funds to Plug Deficit
Art Newspaper    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
With the blessing of the descendants of the relevant donors and his trustees, Graham Beal, the director of the Detroit Institute of Arts, has had to rob Peter to pay Paul, diverting the interest from acquisitions endowments to balance the museum's budget last year. The unusual move has helped keep the museum in the black at a time when Beal has overseen drastic cuts in expenditure. More

CultureGrrl    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Greece, restricting US importation of that country's cultural property, was signed at the Acropolis Museum in Athens by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Greek Minister of Foreign Affairs Stavros Lambrinidis. Some of the proposed MOU's originally proposed provisions (at least one of which was subsequently modified) had been strongly opposed by the Association of Art Museum Directors at hearings held in October by the US State Department's Cultural Property Advisory Committee.
