In Rainbows Remixed by Amplive & VR Implications

The album is remixed using talents like Del the Funky Homosapien. It's decent, but not earth shattering (I thought the same about the "Gray Album").

Anyway, in this brave new world of licensing vs. copyright, I wonder how events like this will affect the visual resources universe (ARTstor recently increased the image size for images used outside of its proprietary viewer). Of course, a enormous example would be the Library of Congress on Flickr. And how about harnessing the copyright free images provided by amateur and professional photographers on sites like Flickr? What will the birth of the amateur do to art and those who critique it? To the WebPAC?

In regard to the WebPAC, I believe that it can only enhance it IF it has already been properly cataloged.
