How to contribute to
Joe Clark’s upcoming book on copyright for creators
Pitch in a few bucks
or show moral support
I’m not an academic, possibly with tenure, as Larry Lessig and Michael Geist are. I’m not a contributor to a multi-million-dollar blog. I’m independent, and independence costs. However, there are free-of-charge options that are just as valid and equally appreciated.
Donate using PayPal
You can donate via PayPal. (Or, if you need some other method, just let me know.)
- Any amount you want:
Use these Competing Copyright Cultural Products™ to comparison-shop. (All values in U.S. dollars; they will remain unchanged for the duration of the project.)
- U.S. iTunes Store download price for Rip: A Remix Manifesto: $9.99
- The current Amazon price for Remix by Larry Lessig: $17.13
- Price of Danger Mouse’s new blank CD and nonblank book: $50
When you’re done, you can post any of our banner ads on your site.
What do you get if you contribute?
- First read of beta chapters: Contributors have the exclusive privilege of reading “drafts” of book chapters. You get ’em first. (There’s a limitation that enforces a tragedy-of-the-commons scenario: The first time I discover the chapters duplicated [“pirated”] in a way that exceeds any known copyright law, issuance of beta chapters ends.)
- Acknowledgement in finished book (all formats and versions). If you wish to remain anonymous, of course you may.
- Free E-book (in your choice of reasonable format; no batshit-crazy requests, please). All my books are available in electronic formats. (In fact, The Cranky Copyright Book is another form of electronic publishing – I’ve been trying different models since 2002.)
To repeat: Any kind of support is appreciated, and there’s no pressure to pitch in cash if you don’t want to. I really do consider these and other free methods of showing support to be just as valid as any other.
- Just write something nice on your blog (or, if you insist, on Twitter).
- Post a banner ad.
And... thanks! again!
