Nina Paley has put together this excellent and practical guide for those who want to release their work, be it text, audio or video, Freely on the Internet. She argues that:
“Copy restrictions place a barrier between you, the artist, and most forms of support. By removing the barriers of copyright, you make it possible to receive money and other kinds of support from your audience, both directly and through distributors, thereby increasing your chances of success.”
And remember, by freeing your work, you also free yourself from the clutches of the copyright industry!
