Content is going to become even more open in 2008… With the change in the media climate and distribution experiments such as Radiohead’s In Rainbows (in music), and Four Eyed Monsters (in film) which have open qualities (temporarily available to watch or listen/download for free, for example) but are not necessarily truly open content, it is getting harder to tell what you can and cannot officially do with your media.

These are three proposed states and accompanying rules over at the A Swarm of Angels blog, as a potential framework for checking at a glance how open the media you are consuming is.

So how open are you going to make your media this year?
