Comment réussir dans un monde égoïste ? | Mutinerie : Libres ensemble Imaginez que vous soyez illustrateur et que vous ayez un projet de création d’une BD interactive pour tablette. Votre style est sûr, votre scénario est au point et vos planches sont bien avancées. Le problème, c’est que tout cela prendra beaucoup de temps et que que vous ne maitrisez pas les outils de développement nécessaires. La vie nous place souvent devant ce genre de situations délicates et il nous est parfois difficile de trouver la voie. Pour ceux qui auraient oublié, voici le dilemme en question : Deux suspects sont arrêtés par la police. S’il réfléchit de manière rationnelle, le prisonnier se rendra compte qu’il a intérêt à balancer son complice. Autrement dit, la somme de leurs décisions égoïstes et rationnelles n’aboutira pas à « l’intérêt général » des prisonniers mais au contraire à la pire décision possible … Comment éviter ce genre de phénomène ? Axelrod a commencé par se poser trois questions : Tous les environnements ne sont pas naturellement coopératifs.

¡Copiad, malditos! derechos de autor en la era digital - elegant mob films Copyleft: Pragmatic Idealism by Richard Stallman Every decision a person makes stems from the person's values and goals. People can have many different goals and values; fame, profit, love, survival, fun, and freedom, are just some of the goals that a good person might have. When the goal is a matter of principle, we call that idealism. My work on free software is motivated by an idealistic goal: spreading freedom and cooperation. That's the basic reason why the GNU General Public License is written the way it is—as a copyleft. Not everyone who uses the GNU GPL has this goal. “Sometimes I work on free software, and sometimes I work on proprietary software—but when I work on proprietary software, I expect to get paid.” He was willing to share his work with a community that shares software, but saw no reason to give a handout to a business making products that would be off-limits to our community. Consider GNU C++. Consider GNU Objective C. Here the GNU GPL comes to the rescue. The GNU GPL is not Mr.

Libre Accès : " Ni SACEM, Ni Jamendo ! " À l'heure où certaines menaces planent sur la neutralité d'internet, des modèles économiques de rémunération de la création commencent à s'affronter. Récemment, l'entreprise luxembourgeoise Jamendo a lancé un pavé dans la mare en annonçant son projet de sonoriser des lieux commerciaux avec de la musique provenant de sa plateforme. Ce projet entre directement en conflit avec la SACEM, qui jusqu'ici, en France était la seule interlocutrice de ces lieux. Nous assistons à une nouvelle forme de libéralisation de la culture, où une plateforme de musique en vient à commercialiser des œuvres en libre diffusion, en se posant comme concurrente d'une société de gestion de droits d'auteurs. Cette attaque d'une société commerciale démontre certainement le grand désarroi d'auteurs qui ne font plus confiance à une société de gestion censée les représenter. Il est dommageable que la politique de certaines Sociétés de Gestion en Europe ne semble pas plus morale que le business d'une startup internet.

Free culture movement The movement objects to overly-restrictive copyright laws. Many members of the movement argue that such laws hinder creativity. They call this system "permission culture Creative Commons is an organization started by Lawrence Lessig which provides licenses that permit sharing under various conditions, and also offers an online search of various Creative Commons-licensed works. The free culture movement, with its ethos of free exchange of ideas, is aligned with the free software movement. Background[edit] In 1998, the United States Congress passed the Sonny Bono Copyright Term Extension Act which President Clinton signed into law. In 1999, Lessig challenged the Bono Act, taking the case to the US Supreme Court. In 2001, Lessig initiated Creative Commons, an alternative “some rights reserved” licensing system to the default “all rights reserved” copyright system. Organizations[edit] The organization commonly associated with free culture is Creative Commons (CC), founded by Lawrence Lessig.

Des espaces et des idées | Mutinerie : Libres ensemble Je me suis souvent demandé pourquoi certains espaces, certaines villes ou certains territoires ont vu naitre tant d’idées nouvelles ou d’innovations en tous genres. Pourquoi certaines entreprises ont été, ou sont encore des terreaux à idées tandis que d’autres apparaissent incapables de proposer de véritables nouveautés? On pense à Athènes, cette cité si petite par sa taille mais dont la fécondité fut absolument stupéfiante à tous les niveaux (philosophiques, politiques, religieux, scientifiques …) au point qu’elle irrigue encore notre époque. On pense à Apple qui dépense 6 fois moins de dépenses de recherches et développementque Microsoft, mais dont la capacité à innover est incomparablement plus importante. Ce n’est ni la taille, ni la richesse, ni la puissance, ni le nombre d’habitants qui déterminent la fécondité d’un espace. Ce qui est maintenant prouvé ne fut jadis qu’imaginé. Le mythe se situe à mi-chemin entre le réel et l’irréel et crée des ponts entre les deux mondes.

Home - AcaWiki What does a free culture look like? - FreeCulture.org Wiki A free culture is one where critics don't just vote thumbs-up or thumbs-down on a movie but seriously discuss how a movie could be improved -- and then someone reads their critique and goes out and does it. [1] [2] A free culture is one where being a cover band doesn't lose you any street cred compared to doing your own music from scratch -- and where it starts to become hard to tell the difference. [3] A free culture is one where bad old TV series and movies turn into brilliant remakes and fan fiction on a regular basis -- and bad remakes and fan fiction themselves generate brilliant ones after a few years. A free culture is one where making a tribute to your favorite book or speculating on a logical continuation of an existing book is just as legal as mocking and satirizing a bad book you don't like. [4] A free culture is one where anyone who wants to can try to build a better mousetrap -- and the world beats a network of paths connecting everyone's front door.
