Wouldn’t be a weekend on The Standard without a post on free culture now would it?

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that I think that the issue of copyright in the digital age has the potential to become The Next Big Thingâ„¢.

The NYT has a good article on the Students for Free Culture group.

Established at Swarthmore College in 2004, the group has chapters at more than 35 universities across the country. “We will listen to free music, look at free art, watch free film and read free books,” reads its manifesto, posted on its Web site, “We refuse to accept a future of digital feudalism.”

Below, for your aural pleasure, is a short YouTube documentary on the “Amen Break” – possibly the most famous six-second drum break in history.
