-The Droplift Project

The practice of droplifting consists of secretly depositing an object into a store thus rendering it buyable...completely unbeknownst to the store or the staff - totally irrational and detournant- it assents, for example, to placing a plagiarist complilation for sale in a Virgin Megastore :) or a "misleading" publication on the shelf of a bookstore. From the website (http://www.droplift.com/) it is possible to download the 29 songs from the artists that participated in this project, including the CD artwork and instructions for manufacturing an identical CD at home (or at work). The tracks (which contain numerous "illegal" samples) are available in .mp3, real audio, iff, and wav formats and are obviously not covered by any copyright.
