The pirate organization is a multidisciplinary project connecting the social sciences, musical experimentation, and the broader civil society. It started in 2010 with a book published in French, accompanied by a musical composition by rock band CHEVREUIL. The band released a song entitled ‘L’organisation pirate’, co-produced by the book’s readers through redistribution of authors’ royalties.
The song is published under a creative commons license which eases creative diffusion of the original work.
An augmented translation of the book will be published in the US in Spring 2012. It will include new sections and chapters developed by the authors based on reader suggestions. Authors' royalties will again be used to fund piracy-related, creative projects released under a flexible intellectual property regime (that is, public goods with a high diffusion and change potential). As usual, all ideas are welcome [organisationpirate_at_g_mail_dot_com]
