the social, political and economic myths and realities linked to this


Topics include: digital art licensing,  
copying and distributing under open content models,  
the influence of FLOSS on digital art practices,  
the use of free software to produce art and  
the art of producing free software,  
FLOSS as an embedded political message in digital art,  
paradoxes and limitations of open licenses for digital art,  
FLOSS as a way to quote and embed other artworks in  
the making of new works, definitions and manifestos  
for a free software art…
