    Topics: John Buckman of Magnatune sits down with Colette to discuss a non-evil solution to the licensing of music for on-line use. He explains why he started Magnatune in 2003, the difficulties faced by independent musicians in getting their music out there, how the record industry helped him out, why he believes in Creative Commons, and how he avoids getting “crabby” as he decides on what music to sign from the 400 submissions Magnatune receives each month.

    Podcasting Legal Guide for Canada!!

    Creative Commons of Canada announced today that it has published a Canadian version (.pdf) of our Podcasting Legal Guide. This is great! I’m going to start reading it tonight!

    One reason why we published the U.S. version of the Guide with the flexible CC-NC-SA license was with the hopes that attorneys in other jurisdictions would translate and adapt it for jurisdictions outside of the U.S.

    Also, as the CC Canada press release explains, the authors did nearly a complete re-write of the guide because copyright, trademark and publicity rights receive different treatment in Canada. One example, is that Canada has many collecting societies that need to be understood if licensing music from Canadian artists (see page 15). This adapted guide for Canada also includes a “copyright matrix” (page 16) and a “rights clearance flow chart” (page 19), both of which will help explain the various rights and who get’s paid for what in the world of music licensing. Moreover, it looks like authors Kathleen Simmons and Andy Kaplan-Myrth have a sense of humor. They have sub-titled their guide, “Northern Rules for the Revolution”. Do we have any attorneys in Mexico, Central or South America who will volunteer to write “Southern Rules for the Revolution” next??

    My sincere congratulations go out to Kathleen Simmons, Andy Kaplan-Myrth, the the faculty of the Law & Technology group at the University of Ottawa for bringing the podcasting community this great new resource.

    NYT.com Tech Talk

    The New York Times Tech Talk podcast has a segment in today’s episode featuring a listener question about music licensing on the web. I was interviewed by Tom Holcolmb to answer these questions. My segment starts at 11:50 min, but give the whole episode a listen. This concise series cuts to the chase on a number of cutting-edge technology issues. Check it out here, or subscribe here.

    TWiL #7 & Upcoming Episodes

    Denise Howell recently invited me to join the panel on This Week In Law for an episode about Digg, Google, and deep linking. It was a delight to join Kurt Opsahl of EFF, Marty Schwimmer and Denise for the lively discussion. As one commenter has put it, TWiL is “the listening equivalent of required reading” for anyone who cares about the intersection of the law and technology. Great work Denise!

    On the R4R front, I have a couple episodes scheduled for release and two interviews in the works. Next week, we’ll be posting part one of my interview about the right of publicity with Gregory Rutchik of the Arts and Technology Law Group. (We’ll post part two on June 26. I’m really trying to keep to a every-2-weeks schedule…)

    I have a couple fun interviews in the works too. First up, Jack Lerner (a Fellow at the Samuelson Law, Technology & Public Policy Clinic) and I are going to sit down and talk about some recent court cases involving Google and how those cases impact internet users and especially new media users and producers. Then, at the end of this month, I have an interview scheduled with John Buckman, founder of Magnatune, where I hope to learn more about Magnatune’s approach to music licensing, and John’s views on how the music industry is changing in light of consumer demands, artists’ abilities to self-publish, and the (”evil”) approaches taken by the entrenched players in the record industry.

    {Update: I just confirmed that Tony Berman (see episodes 6 & 7) will be back for an interview to discuss strategies around distributing music through record deals, on-line tools, self-publishing, and (of course) as podcasts.}

    Please stay tuned for all these upcoming programs, and let us know if you’ve got ideas, comments, or suggestions for us. We love hearing from you.
