Following the reveal of the EU Copyright Reform Proposal, this show had to feature it. The text is a disappointment, but there’s still a lot that can be done to make it change. The piece is available for separate download in a variety of formats, so make sure you share it, remix it, use it for whatever you need, just spread the word!

We also went aboard the public domain ship, once again, and found a bit more about “The Little Prince”. Last but not the least, we brought you more than a handful of awesome free tracks – most of them with permissions for remixing.

You might have noticed that the podcast was only made available a few days later than usual. That’s because our slot on Spark Sunderland has moved to Sundays at 9pm.

On this week’s show, we had the pleasure to talk to Alex Lungu from Copy-Me. Copy-Me is a platform that tries to debunk myths around copying… So, they talk a lot about issues such as copyright, remixing, creativity and so on. The project started as a webseries and was crowdfunded on Indiegogo. Now, Copy-Me is a hub of knowledge and creative resources related to said topics. Much like White Market Podcast, because copyright is such a complex issue, they often delve into parallel themes, such as piracy and web surveillance.

Following the current transformation of White Market into a syndication platform for community radio stations, the interview is also available for download as a standalone piece (two parts), in both WAV and MP3. You can find extra details about the content on each part and extra credits here.

Releasing free music since 2012, ZigurArtists is one of the top netlabels of its generation. With a varied catalogue and a steady love for Creative Commons licences, they managed to bring back to life a deeply aged Portuguese town called Lamego. Three years after their start, their work includes not only an incredible music collection but also a yearly music festival called ZigurFest. On this latest session, I talked to António Silva, one of ZigurArtists co-founders to understand how the collective started and what they aim for. From their early feature in Monocle to cassettes and talent scouting, there was time to talk about various bits and bobs and, of course, some great music from their catalogue.

You can find more about ZigurArtists on their website, on Facebook, on Bandcamp and follow them on Instagram.
