If you recall, American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) issued a call for donations aimed at fighting the “copyleft” movement about a month ago. Even after it had received lots of negative reaction from both the outfits it accused and its own members, ASCAP didn’t drop the matter, but continued to struggle.


It all began for the Society’s members from receiving the letters asking for campaign contributions. It might have not surprised the members if not the intention of attracting the money, which was announced as fighting the “copyleft”, promoted by technology companies and such outfits as the EFF, Public Knowledge and Creative Commons. The Society accused them of the simple unwillingness to pay for the music. This couldn’t arouse good feelings in those ASCAP members that used Creative Commons to distribute their works. Many members did the opposite from the indicated in the letter – sent the reply expressing their disapproval, donated to the Creative Commons instead of even ended their membership with the Society.

All of the targeted organizations voiced their denial of representing a “copyleft”. Creative Commons insisted that it represents mere copyright licenses that the performers can choose on their own will. The EFF (Electronic Frontier Foundation) and Public Knowledge also made announcements arguing that ASCAP did not represent them correctly.

Now ASCAP continues the war, starting debates and announcing of revelation of anti-copyright crusaders that have been engaged in a publicity campaign targeted at discrediting ASCAP’s attempts to defend the rights of their members!

The movement of the outfits like EFF is called “encouraging disrespect for copyright,” achieved by helping defend copyright infringers and undermining all the attempts to ensure more efficient protection. Nevertheless, ASCAP sacrifices itself for ensuring fair payment to music artists, admitting that its members may give their works away for free if they wish, but they should never be forced to do so.

It’s not quite clear what ASCAP means by “forcing”, because it’s hard to imagine how an artist can be forced to choose using Creative Commons license, for example. Except the case where file-sharers kidnap the performer and force him to adopt a license at gun point, this can’t happen, sorry.
