Islam’s Fatwa On Terrorism PART 2

Hollywood threatens Obama over SOPA…See website for more information…http://platform.twitter.com/widgets/hub.1326407570.html…This blog is interested in abstract ideas, all just theory and possibilities, but grounded in empirical examples. This blog has an existential bent, knowing that  new and strange novelties come from combining old and new ideas in various ways that are unusual and different from conventional thinking, not leaner thought, but skewed, oblique, convoluted and odd

juxtaposition,

allegory, parable, metaphor, rhetoric, all can be used as a deminstations to create useful ways not only to make money, create wealth, and economic growth, but increase profit on existing artistic copyrighted and proprietary material…  Cultural artifacts, artistic works and scientific invention should make money for the creator and inventor, but not at the detriment of society and a nation on the whole. The hording, seclusion and storing, hiding away of national treasures and cultural artifacts will ultimately destroy the artifacts and deprive the national culture of advancement in any one tradition, with no national character or recognisable distinction. Clichéd old adages have the value to remind people of the obvious, “If you do not learn from history, you will be doomed to repeat it!” Yes, by all means make a profit on art, and invention, but alow for “interpolation,” of the art and invention to be used as a reference to other ideas and concepts as “fair use.”…U.S. Copyright Office – Fair Use One of the more important limitations is the doctrine of “fair use.” The doctrine of fair use has developed through a substantial number of court decisions over the http://www.copyright.gov/fls/fl102.html.  Let the primary holder of the art work and invention have controlling interest, but do not control so tightly that the invention and art work is forgotten, or falls into the hands of people or organizations that will destroy it and sequester it for so long that it becomes irrelevant, then disrespected like a pice of “junk,” just clutter and then discarded in the trash as can be proven with many historical examples. How many priceless antiques have been thrown in the dustbin just because the importance or value has been forgotten? Nobody makes a profit then, and the cultural loss is irrevocable. …

“At least 90 percent of the nearly 3000 musicals to play Broadway over the past 150 years have fallen into total oblivion.  Yet many of these shows contain song gems of great beauty and entertainment value that, in their day, delighted audiences.  The repertoire for this CD is taken from Broadway and West End shows from the period 1898–1927.  The majority are here given their recording debuts.”..From the following website..http://www.operettafoundation.org/oa1012.htm

“Archaeologist of Sound”

Summary

“Sound historian Patrick Feaster has had first crack at helping bring back to life the lost sounds of 130 years ago. During                        a 2-month stint in the “nation’s attic” at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History, he turned up                        undreamed-of finds, including long-lost cylinders recorded at the 1889 World’s Fair in Paris and what may be the first-ever                        sound recording on a disk. Archives and artifacts, however, are only part of Feaster’s chosen work. Just as important, he                        says, is his mission of using modern technology to resurrect long-vanished voices and sounds—some of them never intended to                        be revived.” ..From the following website…http://www.sciencemag.org/content/335/6066/278.
