[DROPPED] Repeal "Museums of Musical Heritage"

Postby Debussy » Mon Apr 19, 2021 2:04 am

The World Assembly,

Recognizing that music is an integral part of a nation’s culture,

Believing that resolution #86 does not account for the evolving nature of music and the means in which it is provided to the public,

Understanding that physical museums are not the best place to host recordings, sheet music, lyrics, and musical instruments, as outlined by resolution #86, as they are not institutions dedicated to modern preservation or adaptation,

Noting that Resolution #86 does not allow for any means of musical preservation if museums are not a popular or profitable institution within a member nation,

Believing that a network of voluntary museums does not account for each nation’s copyright laws, potentially allowing for conflict,

Suggests that Resolution #86 allows for circumvention of a nation’s copyright laws through enthusiastic researchers or scientists of the Museums of Musical Heritage, or [MoMH],

Hereby Repeals GA #86 “Museums of Musical Heritage.”

North Supreria wonders what the differences are between this proposal and the adopted GA # 86 "Museums Of Musical Heritage".

Debussy did not see this resolution during drafting and will adjust their proposal accordingly. Thank you.

Alexander Smith, Tinhamptonian Delegate-Ambassador to the World Assembly: I have on request the following copy of the proposal you presented before you decided to turn it into a fully-blown repeal. Firstly, what will it achieve that Museums of Musical Heritage will not? Secondly, are you aware of Resolution Eighty-Six's provisions for a MoMH Database "where musical recordings, sheet music, and documents regarding music can be easily accessed... via the internet"? And possibly thirdly, how does the target resolution "not account for the evolving nature of music?"

Debussy wrote:The World Assembly,

Recognizing that the progression of technology has allowed for the preservation of a multiverse of music to be a task well within the means of all nations, and more importantly, this assembly,

Seeking to foster unity, corporation, and expression of identity by means well within this assembly’s capabilities,

Noting that music is a universal cultural aspect of all sentient beings and is one of the best representations of a nation’s culture,

Believing that nations have the right to preserve and protect a fundamental product of their culture in a longstanding institution designed to protect them,

The World Assembly hereby,

  1. Defines “music” as any organization of sounds designed to produce a pleasing or expressive combination of tones,

  2. Creates the World Assembly Music Preservation Library [WAMPL] to preserve and project any music submitted by its members, so long as the music:

    1. adheres to the submitting members’ copyright laws.
  3. Ensures that the WAMPL will provide successfully submitted music through any communicative means available to the assembly to other member.

North Supreria wants to add a fourth question. GA#86 has established that countries, musicians, composers, recording studios and music publishers can donate, loan, share or otherwise make available their materials. Makers can even receive compensation for this. The artist is in control of what they make available. North Supreria therefore wonders how this goes against copyright laws of member nations.
