SOPA Initiative

CreativeCOW presents SOPA Initiative --  COW: The Community Speaks Editorial

YOUR LEGISLATORS NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU NOW.

Please pardon the "net shout" but one day in the not too distant future, the internet in the United States could be much different than the net that much of the world has used and loved for the last couple of decades or more.

If you are a USA citizen, help us protect the internet from the control and regulation that legislators are trying to implement under two ill-conceived bills that would effectively destroy the internet as we have known it. These bills are being referred to as SOPA and PIPA.

We are joining with sites like Wikipedia and thousands of other sites who want to send our Congress and Senate a clear message that these bills are designed to protect the interests of mega-business and will effectively destroy the independent nature of the internet.

To learn more, please visit our friends at Wikipedia at

Help us keep the internet open to even the small voices.

Thank you,

Creative COW

Don't get me wrong but didn't we complain about China for doing soothing similar?
Politicians I tell y'all .

Maybe we all should do a video for or against the SOPA and PIPA and post it on a site?

We should all have a conscience about who owns what works because they created, or salvaged and restored, or own them as sensible business or pride. And we shold act accordingly. Archiving is not against the rules, and can help return what`s stolen. I have a really beautiful book that I keep and show in museum condition. It is a German- French lessons book made by a regular company that is really funny because the Germans saw how humorous they could be in 1930. I`m sure that Mr. Hitler must`ve banned this book and would be upset to see it in prize appreciation and use long after he`s gone to the grave. (-even though I have to force myself to understand German, a language I didn`t study in school). Fred Jodry

The Other Side of GoPro's November 30, 2016 Announcement

The Other Side of GoPro's November 30, 2016 Announcement

When GoPro announced on November 30, 2016 that they would be cutting 200 full-time jobs, closing the entertainment division, and that their president would be leaving the company, the internet came alive with those who were predicting the company's demise. But there really is another side to the story and as is often the case, the loudest voices are not always the ones with the real story. In this article, Creative COW's co-founder, Ronald Lindeboom, looks at GoPro's announcement and gives his thoughts from his point of view. As Lindeboom concludes at the end of the story, "That GoPro stumbled is not surprising to me, what is surprising is that they had such a remarkable unbroken string of success until 2016."

More Than One Path to Success: Senior Editor Mae Manning

More Than One Path to Success: Senior Editor Mae Manning

We talk a lot about things like “accessible tools” and the “democratization of video production” -- what has this meant for the emerging talent whose creative development has taken place largely, or even entirely, within this democratized landscape? Mae Manning is one such editor, who taught herself to edit music videos, and caught the eye of a local production company. Several years later and now their Senior Editor, she cuts corporate and industrial training videos, promotional videos, sketch comedy, short films, and everything else that gets thrown her way. Mae’s story is an inspiration for anyone that thinks there is only one path to success in the industry.
