Music Education Research has just published an article of mine on creative rights, “From compliance to creative rights in music education: rethinking intellectual property in the age of new media.” [Free open access post-print version available, or view on the MER site behind a paywall.]
In the article, I discuss changes in creativity, content, and culture and how they change the ecology of copyright. The compliance approach to copyright is critiqued, and I present an alternative approach that builds from a the creative rights of the student.
As my students know, the article represents the culmination of many years of work (and see my 2010 CITES lecture and Idea Bank piece from Music Educators Journal for related content).
I really want to read this article and use it for my research paper on copyright law and music education. But $36?!?!? That’s INSANE! Maybe you should think about creative commons…
I’m always happy to help out folks when I can, but you point to a serious problem. I’ve written a bit about the politics of journal publishing on this blog. In addition, most publishers embargo publications for a period of time, after which a version (usually pre-publication DOC version) can be shared. I share everything I can via my publications page, and hope to post more work in freely accessible formats as my embargoes lift.
