BRICKiPhone is a completely functional iPhone 4/4s upgrade case.

BRICKiPhone old school iphone case

See, we know you carry the most ubiquitous device of the yuppie class. You probably also have some really fugly ‘protection cover’ on it, when all you ever wanted in life was to go back to the day anyway, right? Solved.

BRICKiPhone is built from four 3d printed pieces. Insert iPhone earplugs, an iPhone 4/4s and go. It snaps together to transforms your iPhone into the hottest thing since the last time people rocked bricks (including the coveted belt clip). Since it prints in four pieces it can be printed with the at home 3d printer of your choice.

Whaaa? You say money for nothin’ and chicks for free? We feel for you assholes (sort of) so STFU and make it gold already.

I was helping out recently with the final touches of the spanish version of a very cool research (really!) that focus on copyright enforcement, piracy and copy cultures: Media Piracy in Emerging Economies:

“By locating piracy within histories of non-elite media practices, we have tried to avoid definitions of piracy as theft or crime and focus instead on how pirate practices weave into existing social relations while at the same time transforming them.”

So language is power and when it comes to naming phenomena related to culture, internet and copying, the struggle over language has resulted in interesting misuses that has led to labels like pirates, whom i salute!

Those who want to control the way our culture propagate started a very vicious trend years ago by referring to the very normalized practice of copyright infringement as “theft”. There have been many attempts to explain why this is not the case. Many. At this point most people know (even supreme courts!) that infringement does not equal theft — yet there is lot of stuff that makes your eyes bleed and end up distorting the debate.

ENFORCE! is a corrective bookmarklet that force your webpage to refer to copyright infringement, copying, monopoly and culture by its proper names.

*Drag the bookmarklet to your browser toolbar and enforce at all times needed!

ENFORCE!
Test ENFORCE! on this classic Lorem Ipsum:

You wouldn’t steal a car.
You wouldn’t steal a handbag.
You wouldn’t steal a mobile phone.
You wouldn’t steal a DVD.
Downloading pirated films is stealing.
Stealing is against the law.
Piracy: It’s a crime.

Steal the disciplinary code.

Greed powers our economy through restrictive licensing deals and claims of copyright. What enables this demand is the ability to control access or demand incentives as compensation for their work. The Internet, built without these restrictions, is being threatened to include protections for licensed and copyrighted content.

G.R.E.E.D. (Glom & Restrict Entities on Existing Domains) demonstrates how a web user’s browsing experience and anonymity can be threatened through restrictions, take-downs, censorship, and monetary blackmail if such license and copyright restrictions are imposed on the Internet.
