A Free Culture Archive

Hey folks. I'm thinking of creating a digital and perhaps even a regular archive for free culture works. I don't want to duplicate any existing work, and I'd like the archive to be of high quality over high quantity due to limited space. That being said, I cannot decide precisely how to determine what belongs in a free culture archive and what does not.

I'm thinking, perhaps only articles that fit the free cultural works definition, which means excluding quite a few licenses that may otherwise allow free distribution. I don't really want to distribute articles unless they carry significance, importance, and perhaps rarity. This means that archiving software hardly makes sense, but then who is to decide whether keeping a copy of, say, The Great Gatsby is more important than an original copy of Linux 1.0? How can I possibly decide what to allow and what must be left out? In a sense, I guess I'm creating a time capsule to preserve libre culture for as long as possible, as an attempt at enriching libre culture.

How can I narrow my scope? How can I decide what can stay and what must go?

Research

Hi! I’m a college student who is researching the free culture movement for an assignment, and I’ve noticed that the page freeculture.org is down right now. I wanted to step by here to see if there’s a new official page available to consult, or maybe something for my research. I'm specially interested in knowing the whereabouts of the movement in the latest years, because everything that I find seems to be about its origins, but I want to know the repercusions it has had.

Anyways the more I find out about free culture, the more I like it, so if anyone wants to help me out be very welcome. You seem to have created a really cool community and I will definetly step by here often.

Thanks in advance (and sorry for my English, it is not my first language) :)

Any lyrics website (like Genius) with free licensing?

Genius has proprietary license to lyrics on their site. I don't like that. Do you know any alternative site with free licensing?
