Rok One Music Archive was conceived in 1999 to address a growing problem in liberal access to valued American music art heritage.
Internet activity showed the demand for on-line services allowing people to explore their wide-ranging musical tastes by downloading to be an explosive innovation. However, the ability to download music for free offered little incentive to guardians of archived music to make their properties accessible on-line. Rapid advancement in technology had not yet developed a rationale supporting an ethical, equitable currency system.
Rok One Enterprises is dedicated to restoring, or creating, liberal access to those musical works for the enjoyment of the music consumer and creative public, and the development of increased incentives for their preservation and circulation.
We believe in forging equitable partnerships between the music industry and consumer public to support and preserve liberal access to "dormant" (wholly or in part) archived music properties;
We believe this will bring about much needed change in how the industry"serves and protects" important American music heritage;
We believe an environment dedicated to liberal access to valued music art for a valuable, equitable exchange using new technologies benefits all;
We believe an alliance grounded in principal, to "participation for the commonwealth", will achieve the popular support of the industry, patrons, and fans alike.
Be a patron of the arts; develop a relationship with important American heritage;
Get involved in protecting our common legacy.
"Come up to my house I'll show you what I mean,
I just got wise and built me a lovin' machine!"
