A gente pensa que a música na Internet é “livre” e que o autor não ganha. Dando alguns números, dentro da conjuntura atual, de Internet com abundância de conteúdo gratuito: O Teatro Mágico já vendeu mais de 200 mil CD’s e cerca de 40 mil DVD’s – entretanto, nenhuma rádio toca nossas músicas. Disponibilizamos gratuitamente todas nossas músicas na Internet. Se a pessoa não tem como comprar, ela pode baixar – ela tem acesso. Lutamos pelo acesso livre aos meios culturais. Isso não faz com que o autor ou compositor deixe de ganhar. Temos que pensar em outras relações econômicas como artistas, enquanto existe este esquema do jabá. E temos que, além de divulgar ao público em geral como funciona essa máquina engessada, temos que pensar a flexibilização dos direitos autorais. Utilizamos o Creative Commons para licenciar as músicas d’O Teatro Mágico – aberto para baixar, repassar, remixar, desde que se cite a fonte.
We’re going into week three since the fans heard that Green Lantern: The Animated Series and Young Justice: Invasion were not being renewed for additional seasons.
We’re taking things up another level in our peaceful protest of the decision this week.
Here’s what to do. Remember, our previous DO/DON’T about staying civil still applies.
Watch the remaining episodes of the shows when they air on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Or, watch them on DVR or on Demand. Or buy them via iTunes or Amazon Instant Video.
Do not badmouth other shows or threaten anyone in the course of your tweets or other interactions directed at the network. This should be a movement of love, not hate.
Sign the petition to Bring Back YJ and GLTAS. Due to the inablity to vet the signatures as individuals, it’s not as effective as sending an email, a letter, or helping create a trend on social media, but every little bit helps. Please use THIS petition. Don’t spread the petition that only calls for helping YJ. We’re in this together, DC Nation.
If you can, do these things every day:
E-mail Cartoon Network. Use this form: “Programming” > “Other Shows”. Be brief (2 or 3 lines is sufficient). Be positive in how you word everything. Fill out every box on the form. Mention if you bought merchandise or watched the show on TV. They do read these emails.
Post encouraging messages about how much you love the shows and want additional seasons on the official Facebook accounts Cartoon Network and DC Nation. (If you’re not being rude/negative or copy-pasting, they won’t delete you.) The fan-run FB pages are for organizing efforts and trading info. When you want CN to hear you, post to their official pages.
Live Tweet the episodes and about GLTAS and YJ in general from 10am EST Saturday throughout the weekend with the rest of the fans on the designated hashtag. The hashtag changes each week to work aroundTwitter’s trending algorithms. We’ve been trending in the US for two weeks on a row now. The new hashtag starting February 16th is #LoveLanternJustice. Before Saturday, the tag is still #AntiReach.
Call 1-877-827-2671 and leave a polite and upbeat message about renewing GLTAS and YJ. If you’re comfortable attaching your name to the message, do so. Make CN remember each of these voices is a person who really cares.
Step it up. In honor of Valentine’s Day week we are starting the movement to send CN tokens of our affection for these shows via the postal mail to Cartoon Network’s Atlanta headquarters. Include a letter if you can think of something to write. No need to be lengthy, just write to them. Keep it polite, do not threaten, word things as positively as you can, mention it if you bought any form of merchandise, and ask them to renew both Green Lantern and Young Justice. If you can’t think of what to write, a default note has been drafted up that you can print out and include (see the image).
Keep doing this throughout the month of February. The week of Valentine’s is just the start.
The GLTAS Fanterns are encouraged to send green “lantern” rings —either the freebie plastic GL rings that are around or green-colored Ring Pops— and/or Blue (Hope) Flowers —make one using oneofthesetutorials (or others), or buy a fake blue flower to send.
The YJers are encouraged to print out The Reach logo and affix if to plastic sports drink bottles or to buy or make domino masks and decorate the to resemble your favorite character.
Please, do NOT send anything that can rot (like vegetables or live flowers) or that may break or is sharp (like glass), we don’t want to punish or accidentally injure whomever ends up opening the mail.
Mail your packages to: Cartoon Network Inc. 1050 Techwood Drive Northwest Atlanta, GA 30318 c/o DC Nation
