After the videos of Charles Leadbeater at Incubate Festival 2010 came online last week, we now have the video for Matt Mason‘s keynote speech at the Incubate Pirate Conference, which took place on September 17. Expect videos of the panel following Matt Mason’s keynote speech to be online tomorrow.
The Pirate Conference offered reflection on the comprehensive piracy-program of Incubate Festival and on the value of creation in society. What do artists think about the current state of issues?
How can they best react to the current operation of copyright? What strategies, tactics and interventions can be used? How do we shape creativity and innovation as a society, and what could businesses learn from these tactics?
Matt Mason, recently proclaimed Pirate of the Year by Week Bussines, gave the keynote speech. He earned this title as author of the book Piracy, which topped both Amazon’s economy and rap/hip hop bestseller lists. Mason was a DJ at a pirate radio station and a club
in London, produced TV series, comics, videos and records, and his articles have appeared in The Guardian, The Independent and Vice among others. In his book Mason shows how operating methods of various underground scenes and trends have become global industries over the past years.
Expect more videos from Rob Scholte, Xavier Le Roy & Mårten Spångberg and Hank Shocklee online the coming days.Tags: ipc10, keynote, matt mason, pirate conference, speech, the pirate's dilemma
On September 17, Matt
Mason will give a keynote speech at the Incubate Pirate Conference at Midi Theater Tilburg. Like in his book The Pirate’s Dilemma, Mason can give an overview about different subcultures that have brought on the most innovative ideas in history. These ideas often have been adopted by businesses later on. The underground scenes that Mason describes often swam against the current or even acted illegally, but always because they strongly believed
that the legal environment didn’t match casino online pl reality. They often showed that business sectors could (and should) be developed further, beyond other people’s vision. These pirates forced businesses to a difficult decision: ignoring new developments, or competing with the pirates.
Read the intro and first chapter of Mason”s book at The Pirate”s Dilemma website. After that, make sure to buy a physical copy of the book and if you didn”t do so already: get yourself a ticket for the Incubate Pirate Conference. They are Pay What You Want!
