    *Special Episode* CC Roundtable on EU DATA ACT

CC CEO Catherine Stihler kicks things off with welcome remarks, and then Brigitte Vézina, CC’s Director of Open Culture and Policy, moderates a conversation between our distinguished panel of experts on how this new piece of legislation could reshape the rules governing value creation around data and unlock the potential for better sharing of knowledge and culture in the digital space across the EU and globally.

    Catherine Stihler | CEO, Creative Commons (Welcome & Closing Remarks)
    Brigitte Vézina | Director of Policy, Open Culture and GLAM, Creative Commons (Moderator)

    Damien Riehl & Noah Rubin of All The Music

    In this episode of CC's Open Minds, we sit down with programmer, musician, and copyright attorney Damien Riehl, and fellow musician and programmer, Noah Rubin, the creators of the All The Music project. Frustrated by accidental copyright infringement lawsuits stifling artists creativity, the dynamic duo teamed up to create an algorithm that would generate and save every possible melody, in order to claim the copyright, and then release it again to the public domain under CC0, which means they have “no rights reserved.” We dive into why they decided to take on this audacious project, how they did it, and how they are trying to help other musicians.
