I don't think they even lose anything in the DVD sales - or a very negligible amount.

People who want something on DVD want the whole package - liner notes, extras, professional packaging, pre-recorded disc with graphics . . .

Practically everyone will pay $10 or $12 or whatever if they want it on DVD, instead of messing with downloading.

I would like to see the BBC take a much more positive stance on trying to be innovative and supporting the artists who provide them with the content. There is too much nonsense on the channel at present. All their energies should be going into being creative instead of worrying about making more money. Get rid of the bland so that if a person videos a programme at least it is something that will make the world a more intelligent place rather than a cilla wet dream

I've not seen anything yet about how they will be dealing with the fact that contractually all the actors taking part in BBC shows get repeat fees on each subsequent viewing. Those payments mean a lot to those who aren't on the top tier of the acting profession.

I like Cory's idea of Wuffie. How can we translate that to the 'net? Suppose a file has a header that tracks to an author, artist. That file is free to load from anyone, sites can promote that file. The File also has a 'wuffie point'. Users that purchase wuffie can push money to artists they enjoy. So If wanted all my points to go to Cory, they would. A clearing house would translate those points to bucks and cut Cory a check. (I might also get a t-shirt or a signed hardcopy too!).

In this transitional time, wuffie has to be money. I'll buy wuffie bucks..and feel free to download any wuffie enabled file. At the end of the year, I push my points to artist I actually liked--and sites I used. Bucks go to the artist, and the promotion site. A Wuffie clearing house just handles checks and doesn't promote or produce. Everyone has the ability to be a promoter, the file becomes free to flow, hard items like signed books and t-shirts become fashionable and desirable. Freeloaders are free to distrubute the files because the file isn't the point anymore, it's clicks on promotion sites and users pay for hard items like shoes, signed books and shirts.

The BBC Creative Archive seems to have grown out from them being remarkably in touch with the internet -- it's surprising they all don't have weblogs yet.

In addition to a presentation by Larry Lessig that might have helped encourage the Creative Archive, I hear that the BBC staff also were given a presentation by Clay Shirky awhile back as well. Not bad advice at all, really...

At the very least it gives the P2P networks a place to point
and say 'Substantial Non-Infringing Use'.
