Hi Folks,

I would like to invite you to check out some new projects I have been involved with. You can find them here:

Quick descriptions:

Human Licenses are a new class of licenses which fill the gap between copyright and Creative Commons. They encourage replication and revenue sharing, by letting you define viral revenue sharing across replication chains. We've also included a bunch of other fun attributes, so go check them out. They're still beta and not 'legal' yet - so bear that in mind if you decide to use them.

Break and Shake are designed to question the media industry's myopic focus on protection tactics and filesharing. We think it's absolutely necessary to demonstrate to the media industry with hard numbers how much filesharing really costs, versus how much they stand to gain by creating truly new business models - not simply repackaging old ones with DRM and antipiracy measures.

Break is open-source valuation designed to answer the first half of this question - how much filesharing really costs. Shake is designed to answer the second - how high the cost of protecting a decaying business model really is.
