The Complete Works of Chopin, For Everybody, For Free

Frédéric Chopin passed away more than 160 years ago — sufficiently long ago that today all of his compositions belong to the public domain.
Yet, despite this, if you wanted to make a movie with Chopin’s Nocturne in C-Sharp minor playing in the background, chances are you’d have to pay royalties to do so. Why is that?
The reason points to a little wrinkle in the public domain, one that commonly plagues classical works: While the music is technically in the public domain (and you are free to play it, perform it, record it however you like), recordings of these public-domain works tend to be copyrighted. (You can thank this little wrinkle for all the terrible “hold” music you’ve been subjected to over the years.)
A Kickstarter project, “Set Chopin Free,” aims to do exactly what its name suggests: Release Chopin recordings from their copyright cell.

ild animals living in unexplored forests are being captured on hidden cameras for a unique experimental iPhone app and website.
Instant Wild Logo

The Zoological Society of London’s (ZSL) Instant WILD app and website hopes to revolutionise the way conservationists monitor remote wildlife hotspots around the world.

Images triggered by wild animals walking past are sent straight to you in real-time – meaning users can get a rare glimpse into the lives of lions, elephants or wild dogs on their commute home.

Motion sensitive cameras have already been set up by forest clearings, watering holes and plains in Kenya, Sri Lanka and Mongolia.
