My new neighborhood Graefekiez in Kreuzberg, Berlin always yields pleasant serendipity. Last night taz Twitter-er & Socialbar planner Jan Michael Ihl and I bumped into Philip, Andreas, and Cindy from the Berliner quatsch-clique Küchenradio.

We chatted for nearly an hour half hour about Creative Commons, Twitter, hindering BMW drivers, and how to make nutellachinos

You can listen to the conversation starting at minute 20:50. The podcast (German) is CC BY-NC-ND. Not the most liberal licensing choice, but I was happy to learn that they were using a CC license in the first place. Maybe they’d consider opening up and experimenting at least without the No Derivatives element? Only allowing verbatim copies limits the fun of whipping up a good remix.

Update: Küchenradio now licenses their podcasts under CC BY-SA. d(^_^)b

From the the Küchenradio blog:

Die Admiralbrücke hat sich zum Rauchabzug der Kreuzberger Kiffer-Szene entwickelt – obwohl eine Frau, die auf der Flucht vor dem Kuss in den Landwehrkanal gefallen ist und diese Website als Referenz angibt, behauptet, es handele sich um eine Kokser-Brücke.

Über die Brücke, mit einem Bier in der Hand, schlenderte Intensiv-Blogger und Multi-Twitterer Jan Michael Ihl begleitet von Creative Commons Aktivisten Michelle Thorne (eigener Wikipedia-Eintrag!).

Next Tuesday, Sept. 16 On Sept. 23 at 21:00 CET I’ll again join the Küchenradio crew and show them how to make nutellachinos. Come listen in at Lecker!

  1. Btw, in the show they said that the podcast was under CC BY-SA. What happens when you agree to an interview under certain licensing conditions, and they turned out to be different when the work is released?

  2. Michelle, I guess you might easily convince Küchenradio Chief Licensing Officer Philip of using a more open CC license. Otherwise we might legally enforce BY-SA as we gave the interview under the promise of that licensing form, and furthermore one might argue that a (radio) interview as the published result of an oral conversation is mostly a derivative work of the interviewee’s expressions. And of course we spoke under CC BY-SA ;-)

    Sorry, I thought we had switched to SA-BY already. Promise to do so soon. No legal enforcement necessary.

  5. eigener wikipedia eintrag! yay, haha.

  6. @Chief Licensing Officer Cool, that’s great! I’d be curious to see if more remixes and derivative works of Kuechenradio cropped up because of the license change.

    Re: legal enforcement, maybe sometimes coming from a country with a notorious suing culture is a good negotiation tool? Don’t worry, though. We won’t have sued. Just asked nicely. ^_^

  7. Aktiviesten Thorn!

    KûchenRadio means RadioPastelitos, right?

  8. I forgot to mention WE NEED VISITORS FOR GV LINGUA IN GERMAN!!!
