Taiwan Beer makes FREE BEER

Monday, September 20, 2010 by freebeer Comments (2)

For the 2008 Taipei Biennial (TB08), Superflex collaborated with North Taiwan Brewing to produce FREE BEER TAIWAN. For TB10, the Taipei Biennial has collaborated with Taiwan Beer to continue producing the well known open source beer FREE BEER. And as usual the recipe and branding elements are published under a Creative Commons license (Attribution-ShareAlike 2.5), which means anyone can use the recipe to brew their own or create a derivative. A prime objective is to create an open business and question the prevailing system of copyright and trade. You can make money on FREE BEER.

LA_FREE BEER

FREE BEER is based on classic ale brewing traditions. The recipe and branding elements of FREE BEER are published under a Creative Commons (Attribution – ShareAlike 2.5) license, which means that anyone can use the recipe to brew their own FREE BEER or create a derivative of the recipe. Anyone is free to earn money from FREE BEER, but they must publish the recipe under the same license and credit our work. All design and branding elements are available to beer brewers, and can be modified to suit, provided changes are published under the same license (“Attribution and ShareAlike”).

FREE BEER is a beer which is free in the sense of freedom, not in the sense of free beer. The project, originally conceived by Copenhagen-based artist collective Superflex and students at the Copenhagen IT University, applies modern free software/open source methods to a traditional real-world product – namely the alcoholic beverage loved and enjoyed globally, and commonly known as beer.

Please be alert not to break the law

Extra Taiwan øl info:

“It was a pleasure to be invited by SUPERFLEX and Taipei Fine Arts Museum to produce FREE BEER TAIWAN version. I personally strongly support the concept of Creative Commons and am more then happy to participate in this project. It’s difficult to brew beer in Taiwan; the ingredients are difficult to get and regulation are rather strict. Therefore, to those friends who are willing to start making beer; please be alert not to break the law.”
- Mr.Wen, Owner of North Taiwan Brewing company

In collaboration with 2008 Taipei Biennial, FREE BEER TAIWAN will be exhibited and distributed during the exhibition periods. You can find at the following stores at http://www.wretch.cc/blog/usadvd/3001561

Lessig: How much RMS has won

Tuesday, September 2, 2008 by freebeer Comments (1)

Lawrence Lessig:
“Just returning from the iCommons Summit in Sapporo, Japan. The Free Beer project made a showing, with a locally brewed version. But this ad caught my eye: “Free Beer” for “500 yen.”

We’re now at the stage where (at least some) the RMS conception of “free” is clear enough so that even “free beer” is “free as in free speech” such that a price running with the free beer seems (again, to a select set no doubt) perfectly natural.”
