Were you ever talking to a friend about how copyright restrictions really affect us all, and wished you could just hand them one little booklet that explains everything? In full-color comics? With QuestionCopyright.org Artist-in-Residence Nina Paley's increasingly ubiquitous Mimi & Eunice
Yeah, that happens to us all the time too. Fortunately, now there is such a booklet. Don't buy just one — that would be economically foolish. Buy them in bulk and hand them out at parties, or at work (that would be economically smart, especially if you work at the RIAA). If you order 20 they're only $0.60 each, and our super-seeder-bulk pack of 100 is just $50, a mere 50 cents each. (You can also get a signed one
Originally funded by a Kickstarter campaign
, these booklets are "Free-as-in-freedom
" — you can copy, translate, and edit them, and even print out your own if you really want to spread the word (though purchasing them from us at eminently reasonable prices is a fine option too, of course).
The master files are available at the Internet Archive
: the covers are PNG files, the interior is a PDF containing image files. Everything has light blue registration marks, which you may want to remove. The back cover has a blank voice balloon where the ISBN barcode is on the American version. Put anything you want in there.
If you want to include the Creator Endorsed Mark, please contact Nina Paley. Otherwise, go crazy! Go crazy anyway! Free Culture!Update 2013-12-30:
Thanks to Andrew Quemere, we now have the booklet in .cbr format
too, created from the Internet Archive files mentioned above. The Comic Book Reader format is readable by a large number programs (e.g., CDisplayEx on MS-Windows, Perfect Viewer on Android tablets, etc); you can learn more about the format at this Wikipedia page
