Drop The Bomb!

The Droplift Project released their copyright-violating debut CD on the 28th of July. "The album is a protest against the copyright restrictions on sampling, along with the music industry in general. Through the prank of dropping our independently produced disc of "infringing material" directly into the bins of record stores across the planet, we hope to raise awareness of fair use issues in music, along with exposing some unsuspecting people to the wonderful world of audio collage and the art of the sample." A nice evangelical anti-copyright tone, for sure. Droplift bills itself as a collaborative project, so get in touch if you want to contribute. Their site also has lots of useful links about anti-copyright issues.
