Session 4.02 – Sharing knowledge with Wikimedia
Back in August, I had the chance of talking to Dimitar Dimitrov, EU Policy Director at Wikimedia. On their website, Wikimedia is described as a global movement whose mission is to bring free educational content to the world. By now, it is one of the top 10 websites traffic-wise globally and it is arguably the biggest community-driven project online. It all started with the amazing Wikipedia, but as knowledge kept getting compiled, their projects also kept on multiplying. Today, the Wikimedia Foundation hosts a dozen projects with the joint goal of sharing knowledge – Wiktionary, Wikimedia Commons and their latest baby Wikidata are just a few of them.Being a content superpower is not easy, though. Surely a hot topic at the minute, the upcoming EU copyright reform is something under their radar but this legislation is far from being the only thing with a deep impact on Wikimedia’s work. For a long time now, they have been facing a variety of challenges that go from censorship in certain countries to court rulings that place double-standards in terms of what people can do with content online and offline. To find out more about these things and, of course, how you can get involved with Wikimedia, just press play.Aritus – For you [Soundcloud] // CC BYYeahRight! – San Francisco [Soundcloud] // CC BY-NC-SATaseh – Down Roller [Monster Jinx] // CC BY-NC-SALuck & Doc – To My Recollection [blocSonic] // CC BY-NC-SAOranjada vs. North Beach Crew – Zora (2010 Druzhba session) [mahorka] // CC BY-NCAll the songs from “Plays Guitar” and “Plays Guitar Again” by Gillicuddy have been used as background music for the interview.

Session 4.01 – Talking copyright with EDRi
WMP is finally back and what a way to start this fourth season! This week, I talked to Diego Naranjo, Senior Policy Advisor at EDRi, to know more about the copyright reform that is still in the making in the EU. EDRi (European Digital Rights) is an association of civil and human rights organizations that advocates for the protection of our rights and freedoms online. On top of working directly with high instances in the EU, they also work in public campaigns, providing ordinary citizens with tools to engage with policy making, such as the Save the Meme website and The School of Rock(ing) EU Copyright workshop (happening in Lisbon, Slovenia and Hungary later this year).On the music side of things, the celebration was on in big style for this year’s Netlabel Day. With more than 200 free records out on July 14th, I picked some of my favourites of 2017 to showcase how inspiring the initiative has been.Lasers – Amsterdam [Bad Panda Records] // CC BY-NC-SAFog Lake – Push [FMA] // CC BYGo Ask Alice – The Shout [La bèl netlabel] // CC BY-SAMichael Keefe – Reality (Feat.

Session 3.21 – Monster Jinx Special
I have been wanting to do this for a long time, but somehow the opportunity only arrived now. This week’s show is a Monster Jinx special! Monster Jinx is a Portugal/Internet-based label specialised in hip-hop and electronic music. They are also an artist collective, and identify themselves as an indie label, having dropped their first record back in 2009. In the last few years, they managed to grab the attention of the Portuguese media, get some airplay on national radio stations and play at big festivals. Despite these big achievements, they remain humble and focused on putting out great music. With an enviable roster of MCs and producers, Monster Jinx are a great example of how Creative Commons licenses can boost the reach of a work, and how releasing music for free doesn’t mean a product is any less appealing.If you’re a regular listener of the show, you probably know at least part of their work by now, as I have been a long time supporter of their work. In the last few years, I have been uploading a great part of their music to WMP’s curator collection at Free Music Archive.Putting Lisbon’s great weather to good use, I sat down with Darksunn (co-founder, manager and do-it-all) to find out more about how the label started, why they picked Creative Commons as their licencing system, the challenges ahead and their strategy for the future. For the first time in White Market Podcast’s history, this interview was actually recorded on location, which may explain some of the sound issues on this episode. Nonetheless, please sit back and enjoy the vibes of the purple monster.Darksunn – SidestepNO FUTURE – NOMONO MONEYMonstro Robot – Gata Borralheira (feat.

I will be posting the list of background music tracks soon.The post Session 3.21 – Monster Jinx Special appeared first on White Market Podcast.
