The Oxcars 2008

The greatest Free/Libre culture show on earth
Because their business is not our culture. The Oxcars bring down a monopoly.
Barcelona as World Capital of Shared Culture. Artists and performers from all areas of culture Spanish and international has take part in an awards ceremony with all kind of surprises, pooling their efforts to demand a stop to culture being treated as merchandise by royalty management organisations and cultural industries lobbies. Artists say ?Not in my name? to the commercialisation of culture, ?Not in my name? to Spain?s ?canon digital? (digital levy), ?Not in my name? to limiting the potential of digital media. Civil society demands the ?lost profits? of all the knowledge that is being withheld and stolen from public use in the name of private profits.
