PROPIEDAD SUCKS! (el copyright llega incluso donde menos lo esperas…)

minipimer

con el colectivo minipimer.tv solemos trabajar sobre cuestiones absurdas e imposibles. es como un constante proceso de aprendizaje intuitivo y comunitario, en el que de pronto y sólo a veces te das cuenta de que algo has aprendido. habitualmente utilizamos una metodología del error (creativo) y del DIT (do it together). no hay cosas demasiado establecidas, aunque hagamos lo posible por organizarnos. son intentos fallidos que se van acumulando hasta construir un muro inestable y deforme que a la vez llega a ser duro. no me atrevería a usar la palabra identidad para referirme al carácter que se va conformando en la práctica que junta tecnología, investigación, experimentación, creatividad, burocracia en gestación y células muertas. llevamos así creo que unos 3 ó 4 años. olvidamos el aniversario del colectivo, porque algo que es mutante nunca nace como algo que no sea una masa informe. lo inefable, lo procesual, comienza a adquirir estructuras que no responden a lo lineal, y un cumpleaños es de las linealidades más grandes de nuestra vida.
…2008. ante el facto de tener que comprar un dominio web nos vemos en la necesidad (el derecho y finalmente el deber) de tener un nombre. no nos conocemos, no tenemos ganas, hay propuestas pero ninguna genera euforia. una de las que habla más fuerte insiste en los alcances metafóricos y lúdicos del nombre. minipimer, como una minipimer, la batidora. recuerdo su gesto y su adorable expresión (que sólo puedo situar en andalucía), una sonrisa. nadie se entusiasma demasiado, nadie se opone. pedro saca una tarjeta plástica rosada, paga. ya está. si existimos en la red, existimos, aunque nadie se lo piense.
… en el intertanto comenzamos a hacer streaming (siempre con software libre), experimentamos con las herramientas, se bajan del barco algunxs (la primera andaluza, los catalanes), hacemos emisiones como si fuera un apostolado, nos conocemos lentamente, nos aburrimos de streamear pero no bajamos la guardia, abrimos dos grupos de trabajo (uno de estudio y el otro de desarrollo de herramientas), algunxs se tecnologizan, llega gente nueva, viajamos un poco, nos compramos una canopus (nuestro mayor patrimonio), seguimos en hangar, leemos textos, encendemos leds con un arduino (y algo más), discutimos sobre nosotrxs mismxs, discutimos, intentamos organizarnos, buscamos vías alternativas, buscamos la reflexión profunda que hasta ahora es como un fantasma al que no podemos fijar en un papel ni un documento, pero que tenemos la sensación de que nos visita a veces. trabajamos con algo libre, a veces las herramientas, otras veces la cultura, las prácticas o las metodologías. nunca nadie es completamente libre, así que trabajar con «algo» libre es trabajar también con lo que le impide llegar a ese punto imposible del absoluto. a veces se siente como estar constantemente dando golpes con la cabeza contra un muro.
…2011. ante la precariedad, nuestra condición eternamente parasitaria y la dificultad para comprar materiales (después de 4 años streameando no tenemos ni siquiera una cámara propia), el carácter absolutamente marginal de nuestro trabajo se nos aparece como la propia imagen en un espejo. decidimos constituirnos como asociación. con ilusión y tembleque escribimos unos estatutos, nos perdemos en la burocracia, definitivamente no es lo nuestro. copy paste copy paste minipimer.tv copy paste.
un par de meses más tarde se nos notifica la imposiblidad de dar continuidad a la tramitación de la asociación debido a que el nombre está registrado. se nos sugiere pedir autorización a braun spain s.a. para utilizar SU nombre. en todos estos años es el primer contacto que tenemos de este tipo con lo privativo. nunca nadie nos ha impedido hacer algo, menos aun definirnos con un nombre. lo absurdo y el imposible se erigen como la eventualidad que en un momento traga de tu contingencia, te roba planes, te roba tiempo.
las alternativas sugeridas por la administración son: pedirle autorización a la empresa (posibilidad desechada), o cambiar el nombre.
el 2010 en el programa de la noche en blanco de madrid, para la colaboración que hicimos con d. g. andújar, escribieron nuestro nombre como «turmix». alguien, no sabemos quién ni nos interesa, pensó en nosotras no como un título ni como una web, sino como un concepto, el de la batidora de mano, un artefacto que permite moler y mezclar elementos sin necesidad de cambiar el recipiente, un electrodoméstico portátil y manual. al parecer hemos sido un poco outsiders y no nos hemos dado cuenta de que estamos «robando» un nombre. tampoco nos habíamos dado cuenta de que, como dijo tere, podíamos ir a pedirle a la braun que nos esponsorizara (cuestión que definitivamente no nos entusiasmó ni en lo más mínimo y que quedó relegado para otro momento, como para los niñxs, ubicado en el «mundo real»).
decidimos cambiar el nombre, pero la administración volvió a vetarlo aludiendo a que se prestaba para confusiones.
la verdad es que el contacto con la burocracia se hace harto desagradable, pero si está coludida con la cultura de lo privativo y del copyright resulta aún peor. al principio la situación me dio bastante risa. aunque en la medida en que se está volviendo kafkiano a ratos llega a desmoralizar (no lo suficiente como para indigestarme). sobre el asunto, tampoco reflexiono demasiado, sólo es la constatación de lo propietario, y un impulso para seguir en la disidencia.

  1. Vuestro dilema es el de miles de bandas de música buscando algo con gancho que no esté pillado.

    ‘batidora’ es un excelente término.
    ‘Minipimer’ hace risa, como todas las marcas viejas, pero sí: es una marca comercial y no creo que sea posible ni que a Braun le haga gracia ceder su nombre.

    Lo importante es que hacéis. Poneos un nombre que no esté cogido y ¡adelante con todo!

  2. sí, para efectos administrativos nos llamamos casi igual (pero aún no existimos burocráticamente…). tampoco ningunx de lxs que estamos eligió ese nombre. para mí viniendo de fuera, pues no significaba nada.
    salut!
