Just so you know, that release is not in any way helping out the artists
who made those songs (no not those songs). and the people who are on
the cd, they are not sure who is releasing this cd.

here's a thread where there is some discussion

Peter A Lopez

anyway about that article in the Wired, unfortunately it contained some
bad information, the dictionaraoke track using Culturcide as a starting
point is a PRO-CLONING statement. anyone know the writer of the
article, Peter Shapiro?

and since were talking about booty:

%20 & M.E. |3007133 - Too Much Freakin' Going On Ver.1.0 (Thus I Can't Keep Up, So...Copyleft) - ReadMe

Ok so after listening to much of the music coming out of the UK Booty world (well i don't know if they actually exist but i download all this stuff from, and yet 4 of the final 12 were made by US individuals, i think), i found that there were alotta versions of Missy Elliott's "Get Yr Freak On" (which at the time i had never heard before), so at first i was like ok that's a decent idea, Booty the Booty people, seemed like a good idea at the time.

Here are the source files:

Part of the Booty movements appeal is that it is a group of individuals combining different material into new forms. It's kids creating i guess with out the restrictions of economic pressure to enforce copyright ownership. If this is the wave of the future (where people who want to create, do create without burden of certain limitations, and often don't expect financial reward), as articles like express, why not attempt to apply these ideals to the music genre. So this track and all it's source information is free, just contact me and we'll work out a way of getting to you the information to use at your discression. anyway did the people of the Star Ship Enterprises worry about copyright, no, that's the future right?... Thus this is version 1.0 hopefully the next version, if anyone is interested, is alot better, can't get much worse. (i'm already kicking myself for not including one sample...)
