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. Travis Paul) [Amblis Records] // CC BY-NCNüman – Sin título [Sólo le Pido a Dior] // CC BY-NC-SABottlesmoker – East Indies (feat. Kronutz) [Yes No Wave Music] // CC BY-NCKnit – A Good Chance [Z Tapes] // CC BYMoki McFly – Zeta [mahorka] // CC BY-NCAll the songs from “Where The Sidewalk Ends” by Roger Plexico have been used as background music for the interview. Tracks available under a  CC BY-NC-SA licence; download on Bandcamp or FMA. The post Session 4.01 – Talking copyright with EDRi appeared first on White Market Podcast.
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. Pulso) Monster Jinx – Venera o Diabo (Faz Festas a Gatinhos)J-K – DespedidaPulso – Estalo os DedosAll the tracks are available under a CC BY-NC-SA licence. 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.
Session 3.13 – Exceptions are not the Rule
This week, I had the chance to talk to Maarten Zeinstra, from Amsterdam-based think tank Kennisland, to find out more about the project Copyright Exceptions. We already know copyright law is particularly complex, but things do get even more confusing once you look at the different regulations each one of the 28 European Union countries has. On a completely different side note, I would like to thank to Starfrosch and Musique Libre for helping me out in finding the CC licence of This Mess is Mine release, which allowed me to play it on the show. They are both great resources if you’re into Creative Commons music, so make sure you check them out.

Session 3.12 – Another Music Session
After two very special episodes, today we go back to a full music session. We have bedroom pop and undiscovered netlabels, as well as some older loves. As my dissertation is coming to an end, I will continue to release new epiosdes of White Market Podcast on a weekly basis. I have a few interviews and features planned, and I still have a White Market in Context I’d like to share about the show in relation to its community. For now, I would like to express my tremendous gratitude towards all the interviewees in this season (so far), to Soundart Radio and Diane Gray for their immense help with the radio broadcast side of it, and, of course, to all the artists and labels that keep releasing their music under Creative Commons. beat.dowsing – Knowns [ Self-Published ] // CC BY-NC-SA Dimitri Palikaris – Black Hole [ Phonocake ] // CC BY-NC-ND Broke for Free – tabulasa [ Soundcloud ] // CC BY Taseh – Caramella Peak [ Monster Jinx / FMA ] // CC BY-NC-SA Luz Safari – Tour [ Fax Records ] // CC BY-ND Safir Nòu – Land-Escape [ La bèl ] // CC BY-NC-SA bedbug – forgetting what its like to feel bad <3 [ Z Tapes ] // CC BY moving in – strawberry [ Z Tapes ] // CC BY Omar – Pescoço de Túlipa [ Lixo Records ] // CC BY-NC waterpistol – blue waters [ Jamendo ] // CC BY-NC-SA Small Colin – You & I Will Be [ Rec72 ] // CC BY-SA Indian Wells – Racquets [ Bad Panda Records ] // CC BY-NC-SA
Session 3.09 – EU Copyright Mess
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.
