Bootie Mashup quoted in “Copyrights & Wrongs” in SF Weekly
On January 1, 2019, a decades-long copyright moratorium in the U.S. expired, so now songs, films, writings, and artwork released in 1923 have entered the public domain. Under fair use, musicians and artists can now enjoy or adapt these works under a looser set of intellectual property laws.
But as Joe Kukura writes in the SF Weekly article entitled “Copyrights and Wrongs,” DJs and digital-rights activists contend that copyright law is still a mixed message.
Adrian A, founder and DJ of Bootie Mashup, was interviewed for the piece, along with Electronic Frontier Foundation’s Cory Doctorow.
