Ms. MP the 3rd


What system do you use to purchase and listen to "your" MP3s? Do you know
your rights as an MP3 consumer? Are you aware of when you are
overstepping your listening rights as a consumer of MP3s?

The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) is a company that
represents the music labels that own the copyrights to the music that you
purchase as MP3s. The RIAA enforces the use and exchange of MP3s via the
Digital Rights Maintenance (DRM) lock, but few people really know all the
details as to how the legal rules of DRM function or how companies such as
Apple and Napster can control your MP3 purchases. Stafan Hayden has
assembled an informational animation that walks one through a general
overview of MP3 laws - use and misuse as well as how Apple and Napster are
managing their sales.

Check out Stefan's animation to learn about the complex world of copyright
and ownership of MP3 files:

Bowery Project


hello rhizome community,
if any of you are interested in the history of NYC's Bowery neighborhood,
I've assembled a site that presents research, links and articles on the
history of the bowery as well as current transformation:

http://www.ambriente.com/bowery/

the site stems from a current installation for the new museum's counter
culture exhibition that will close this saturday... if you're in nyc
check out the show, there's a particularly nice installation by flux
factory at the martial arts store on bowery just above prince. although
the works are open throughout the week, the final curator guided tour is
saturday the 14th, from 2-3:30pm meeting on Bowery at Prince, in front of
the parking lot- future home of the new museum.

best,
ricardo
