My Year Living Without Copyrights

From and

There is one common thread that binds most products we use on a daily basis: they are copyrighted. But on August 1, filmmaker Sam Muirhead announced that he would attempt to live without all these products, in an effort to immerse himself in the open source movement. This means he will have to find alternatives from everything to the beer he drinks to the socks he wears.

Muirhead is calling the experiment the “Year of Open Source,” and he will be documenting his experience on his website.
