Paco León https://oxcars12.xnet-x.net/en/paco-leon-carmina-o-revienta/ https://oxcars12.xnet-x.net/en/paco-leon-carmina-o-revienta/#comments Fri, 10 Aug 2012 14:08:40 +0000 http://www.oxcars12.xnet-x.net/?p=112

Paco León premiered his film “Carmina o revienta” (which stars his mother and his sister and was a big winner at the recent Málaga Film Festival) on the Internet in July this year. Given the difficulty in securing distribution for the film, he decided to offer it directly (without intermediaries) to anybody who wanted to screen it at a theatre or post it online so that everybody can watch it.

Paco León (Seville, 1974) is best known for playing Luisma in the series Aída, broadcast on Spanish TV network Telecinco. His work imitating Spanish TV celebrities on Antena 3 network’s comedy programme “Homo Zapping” has also made him a household name.
This film is his directing debut and the result of several years of work.

“CARMINA O REVIENTA is basically a portrait of my mother and her world. It mixes reality and fiction, improvisation and script, in order to capture the truth that makes it possible to bring these characters to life in all their dignity, strength and sense of humour.” On the day he released his film, he posted on his Twitter account: “My mother signing pirate DVDs of “Carmina o revienta” for an African illegal street vendor. #whowouldhavethought” and ended by saying: “My mother has done more for the war on “piracy” than the anti-piracy ‘Sinde Law’”

Taringa! https://oxcars12.xnet-x.net/en/taringa/ https://oxcars12.xnet-x.net/en/taringa/#comments Thu, 09 Aug 2012 16:43:23 +0000 http://www.oxcars12.xnet-x.net/?p=28 Taringa! is a Spanish language online community based mainly in Latin America; its members can share all kinds of information by sending each other messages through a collaborative interaction system. Taringa! has been active since 2004 and has 16 million registered users. The development team is currently working on Taringa Musica, a project that aims to share profits directly with the authors.
Taringa! has been forced to defend itself in several lawsuits filed by the cultural industries, and for the time being it has come out of all of them with flying colours.

Megabox https://oxcars12.xnet-x.net/en/megabox/ https://oxcars12.xnet-x.net/en/megabox/#comments Tue, 07 Aug 2012 14:20:35 +0000 http://www.oxcars12.xnet-x.net/?p=69 Megaupload was working on the launch of Megabox: a music store that planned to offer 90% of profits to creators who shared their music on the site. The response came swiftly and the US Government closed down Megaupload and sought the extradition of Kim DotCom. But the battle is not over and Kim DotCom has announced that the Megabox project is going ahead and will be released soon.

FRAC: Fundación de Raperos Atípicos de Cádiz https://oxcars12.xnet-x.net/en/frac-fundacion-de-raperos-atipicos-de-cadiz/ https://oxcars12.xnet-x.net/en/frac-fundacion-de-raperos-atipicos-de-cadiz/#comments Mon, 06 Aug 2012 14:50:50 +0000 http://www.oxcars12.xnet-x.net/?p=104

The group FRAC (Fundación de Raperos Atípicos de Cádiz / Foundation of Atypical Rappers from Cádiz), with a line-up made up of Antonio Pareja (Pareja Deep Sound), Gonzalo Saavedra (Caleta Sound System) and Washy (Frutos del Islam DJ) specialises in street criticism that mixes attitude, poetry, great music and a sense of humour and doesn’t pull punches. Its lyrics are peppered with priests, Spanish politicians and prelates and references to the Pope’s childhood. They sing an ode to the PPSOE – a merger of Spain’s two major (and all-too-similar) political parties – without leaving out high-profile figures from the right-wing press. They define themselves as “authentic, indomitable portraitists of unhinged lucidity. Rappers, soccer lovers, quatrainists. Endurance rebels, automatic storytellers, Jamaicans at heart, with loose tongues, quick reflexes and cocky rhythms.”

All their tracks are licensed under Creative Commons. And this has even sparked episodes with the “mainstream” media…

15MpaRato https://oxcars12.xnet-x.net/en/15mparato/ https://oxcars12.xnet-x.net/en/15mparato/#comments Sun, 05 Aug 2012 14:53:06 +0000 http://www.oxcars12.xnet-x.net/?p=108 15MPARATO is a citizen-led initiative that seeks to prosecute the people responsible for this swindle they call “crisis”, and make them accountable before a court of law. The first target: Rodrigo Rato, seeing as “we have to start somewhere” and the now-resigned former president of Bankia is just as responsible as anybody else. The lawsuit is being brought by 50 shareholders who have offered to act as plaintiffs and dozens of internal witnesses. To top it off, the crowdfunding campaign to raise funds to get the ball rolling and file the lawsuit achieved its goal in less than 24 hours (19,413 euros through contributions made by 1,600 individuals and groups.) This led to politically motivated crowdfunding fastest in history. The suit was filed on 14 June.

No-Res https://oxcars12.xnet-x.net/en/no-res/ https://oxcars12.xnet-x.net/en/no-res/#comments Fri, 03 Aug 2012 16:23:34 +0000 http://www.oxcars12.xnet-x.net/?p=26 [NO-RES] is the chronicle of the final days of Colònia Castells, one of the few factory complexes that remained in Barcelona until it was torn down in 2011. The film, which won the prize for the Best Spanish Feature-Length Documentary at the 2012 Documenta Madrid festival, was released under a Creative Commons licence so that it can reach as many people as possible, without restrictions. In addition, the production team secured more than 2000 euros for the project through a crowdfunding campaign, as well as the support of Catalan television network TV3, which became a co-producer and will broadcast the documentary (presumably in September this year). This is the first time that a Catalan public network participates in a production licensed under CC.

Dan Bull https://oxcars12.xnet-x.net/en/dan-bull-cancion-sopa-cabana/ https://oxcars12.xnet-x.net/en/dan-bull-cancion-sopa-cabana/#comments Thu, 02 Aug 2012 13:51:15 +0000 http://www.oxcars12.xnet-x.net/?p=75 Dan Bull (Bromsgrove, England, 1986) is a musician and champion of the right to share files. He has participated in campaigns in support of The Pirate Bay and Talk Talk. His recent projects include the song SOPA Cabana, against the United States Stop Online Piracy Act, with a video starring 86 individuals and one cat who sent their fragments through the Internet. The song reiterates fears that the bill may limit freedom of expression and is a particular threat to the rapper community, which regularly takes samples from other songs and clips from tracks by other artists to incorporate them in their own. Dan says: “Although my corporeal form ambles around somewhere in meatspace, I live on the Internet and for the Internet.”

Kopimisme https://oxcars12.xnet-x.net/en/kopimisme/ https://oxcars12.xnet-x.net/en/kopimisme/#comments Wed, 01 Aug 2012 08:55:49 +0000 http://www.oxcars12.xnet-x.net/?p=151 Sweden recognised filesharing as a religion when it accepted the Church of Kopimisme, which promotes copying and believes that access to information is sacred.
The Church of Kopimisme was founded in 2010 and is open to anybody who wants to form part of it. Their goal is “all knowledge to everyone” and the search for knowledge, its circulation and the act of copying is sacred to them.
