And at the end of the intro by , where the issues of copyleft are very well summarised, she shows her poster, first work, about all licences around the year 2005, and the current relative new florishing phase we are in, wise.

brings back case.
"Activist: Because Houellebecq re-used a share-alike license, that should make the license apply to the novel, so someone else took houellebecq's book and shared it online. Was quickly removed by the publisher. He used content without attribution to Wikipedia/authors of the page. Who would complain about this? So many authors, hundreds? In French law all authors should have done an action together. Needs to be authors who 'contribute original material'  not removing the commas :-) So making that filtering, already complicated.
CC licenses don't address this type of complexity, relying on copyright laws which have such limited understanding of authorship / creation... Wikipedia is more related to a weird mix of authors, contributrs, robots..."
Extract from collective pad notes, to be published later.

Let's continue to funnel some part of live notes to here. With who dance and codirect the KuntenFestivaldesArts "From expression to circulation
from property to use
It’s not the movement of the body, but by the body.
Dance is made of an encounter between movement and bodies.
The movement of movements between different bodies.
We have to see also the other aspect; if we make exactly the same movement now as a month ago
Does the movement exists indipendently of its appearance materialized in the movements of different bodies?
We need to imagine continuous life of the mouvement
A circulation of bodies inside the life of one movement
Dance is where the bodies occupy the movement
Bodies visualize the life of the mouvement at certain moment
'she moves, she's still alive'
But here the bodies show it’s the movement that is still alive.
which is a not-body
dance gives possibility to exceed the antropocentric vision of life"

and as a regression.
"This criticism is not nostalgia.
There is a regression that needs to be fixed. From a means (a tool to discuss an idea for society) it became an end. Critique on free culture is complicated, quickly misunderstood. There has been a lot of radical experimentation with intellectual property (60s/70s). Nowadays, it's more likely that you're introduced to intellectual property experiments through creative commons and remixing culture. What is the act of sharing? A highly priviledged position? As free licenses are a higher level of copyright... Would an injection in the existing copyright law perhaps open up many more possibilities? While recreating boundaries, it is possible to exclude others again."

In the discussion following the four talks, Femke summarize somehow with "Things can travel beyond you." Me fait penser à mes sentiments multipliment partagés en entendant cet ex-étudiante, graphiste, m'expliquer comment elle a décidé de ne pas utiliser la police pour une série importante de travaux à cause du problème bien connu de l'apostrophe sexuée non présente. Désir de corriger ça immédiatement sans attendre le reste des modifications, désir de"let it go", désir de d'abord trouver des financements, bleu à l'âme et compréhension en même temps qu'elle ne l'ai pas corrigé elle-même, souvenir de combien ce travail mal expliqué n'a été repris par personne alors que c'est son but sans doute plus encore que d'autres polices, trouble de savoir combien c'est ma chose ou pas, ou celle de , co-auteur sans l'avoir touché. Et d'autres ressentis contradictoires encore. Toutes choses où la licence n'a pas aidé. Et en contraste avec combien la licence libre a été un soulagement pour moi pour solutionner le problème de la publication des fontes .
At the moment, just before going to eat, the audience speaks about the need to work from the practice this afternoon.

@crickxson c'est la première fois que j'entends parler d'apostrophe sexuée. Est-ce que je lis bien? Je ne trouve pas de réf. sur le web.

@xuv Hahaha tu pointes une invention pseudo-savante mais surtout absurde de ma part.
En fait simplement la différence entre ’ et '.
"En raison des contraintes techniques des claviers de machines à écrire, puis de nos jours de ceux des ordinateurs, elle est très souvent tracée comme une barre verticale droite dans les documents informatiques. Cette apostrophe est alors appelée « apostrophe dactylographique » (car apparue avec les machines à écrire mécaniques utilisant une seule touche pour l’apostrophe et le guillemet anglais ouvrant ou fermant, ou même d’autres signes comme l’accent aigu), « apostrophe droite » (car elle est souvent droite pour le guillemet anglais ouvrant ou fermant, mais pas toujours), apostrophe informatique3 ou d’autres noms plus imagés4. [...]Selon les usages des typographes, l’apostrophe dactylographique ne devrait pas être employée et, par exemple, pour Lacroux, ce « n’est pas une apostrophe. […] Ce n’est typographiquement rien »
