No one is forcing him to do this just as no one is forcing you to read techdirt and post a response. With your logic you must also realize that you are 'stupid' in 'wasting' your time in responding to an article about 'stupid' time 'wasting'. If you didn't care I doubt you would be here commenting.
I also create music in addition to DJing and adore the idea of copyleft. Even as I could apply it to you. If you can find my music I encourage you to copy it, give it to everyone and tell them how much I suck. Sell the music if you like and I wouldn't want any of the profit. Matheny seems to be making music for the same reason I do. This reason is (brace yourself) I LIKE DOING IT.
For this to truly be open I see it as something that must be done with thick intrinsic viscosity and in doing so would take far to long for those thinking in extrinsic avenues (money, advertising, etc.) to back it. Also coming into play are infinite capyright issues which I will not go into as you are already here at techdirt reading and would be in sad shape not to know about. Instead of writing a page on the subject of an open national library (God bless those that would get to the bottom of it) I say that I would gladly scan and submit books I own as well as my magazines (which are mostly of the nature of music creation and thoery) due to me being a (sic) musician and DJ as well as an advocate of copyleft and creative commons.
