Whenever I feel confused
about the rights of artists in this age of freely-shared media – which is easily done, let's face it – I take a moment to revisit Pere Ubu's page of protocols.
It's a beautifully written, concise series of rules which neatly explains, amongst many other things, why there are (virtually) no Ubu videos on YouTube. I used to work for David during the 1990s; the clarity of his thoughts on the music business was always inspiring, and continues to be so.

Photoshop is fourteen years old this month. I am sitting in its hometown
and have version 7 on my Gateway. Loretta Lux
was trained as a painter and now uses digital images via photoshop for her art
. (NYTimes article
) News photographers have lost
their jobs for using it. Some would argue that photoshop is a new medium
and I would agree. I will use it next to shape the images that will promote my sons' landscaping business.
