"If I received a dollar every time I get a question along the lines of "how can the content industries compete with FREE?" -- I would be traveling first class everywhere I go. Underneath this question I often find my favorite toxic assumption: "less control over distribution means less money."

This belief is as tired as it is poisonous: enforcing control (when trust is really what's needed) will yield instant disengagement, which swiftly and surely will translate into dwindling revenues -- as the music industry keeps proving again and again. If you believe in control rather than value and trust, the content business of the future is not a good hunting ground for you."

"The fourth extended file system, or ext4, is the next generation of journaling file systems, retaining backward compatibility with the previous file system, ext3. Although ext4 is not currently the standard, it will be the next default file system for most Linux® distributions. Get to know ext4, and discover why it will be your new favorite file system."

"Dans un climat de forte tension, la Nouvelle-Zélande accueille cette semaine à Welligton le huitième round de négociation sur l'Accord de Commerce Anti-Contrefaçon (ACTA), qui prévoit un durcissement de la protection de la propriété intellectuelle. Réclamée de toutes parts, la publication des documents de travail ne devrait toujours pas être à l'ordre du jour."

"End of analysis? Not by the metric of engagement, according Brightcove. The company noted that videos found on artist and label sites are viewed for longer periods, specifically 10 percent longer than aggregators. Brightcove also found that 29 percent of viewers on said sites finish the entire video, compared to 12 percent on aggregators like Vevo.

The plot then thickens a bit. It turns out that the way a fan finds a video can also predict the level of engagement. Those finding videos through Twitter watch for an average period of 2:30, while those coming through mega-engines like Google watch for 1:30. But, 76 percent of videos are found through Google, according to the data."

"SoundExchange paid out $51.7 million in non-interactive, US-based radio royalties during the first quarter, a record for the group. The figure was shared exclusively this morning with Digital Music News and the New York Times, ahead of a broader announcement. The payout represents a record sum for the organization, and traverses online radio, satellite, and cable television sources.

It also represents a 135 percent, year-over-year jump, and a $10 million gain over the previous record. "In addition to our usual distribution amounts, this total includes millions of dollars which were freed up by our commitment to cleaning up the bad data which is often reported to us by services," explained SoundExchange executive director John Simson."

"The advertising-free mflow enables subscribers to discover, recommend and share music by following other users' recommendations to build a network of trusted taste-makers.

Users are incentivized to return to mflow with a full-length stream of tracks that have been recommended - or 'flowed' - them, and they earn 20% of the price paid for every recommended track that gets purchased.

The venture kicks off with a catalog of more than 1 million songs from major labels Universal Music U.K. and Sony Music, and leading independent labels. It is also said to be in talks with EMI Music and Warner Music Group."

"In an apparent attempt to stop piracy from bankrupting the music industry, the UK Government passed the Digital Economy Bill last week. Despite their good intentions, the lawmakers have come up with a legislative equivalent of DRM that will not have the slightest effect on seasoned file-sharers."

"Se é verdade que uma Universidade se faz com alunos e professores, também é verdade que todo estabelecimento de ensino possui hoje um Xerox. Grandes, pequenos, uns menos informatizados, outros mais. Fato é que a maioria esmagadora dos professores disponibiliza material em suas respectivas pastas e os estudantes, fotocopiam! Em grande escala.

Segundo estudo(disponível em http://www.gpopai.usp.br/relatoriolivros.pdf) do Grupo de Pesquisa em Políticas Públicas para o Acesso à Informação (Gpopai–USP), 1/3 da bibliografia básica obrigatória de 10 cursos da Universidade de São Paulo (USP) estão esgotados. Os dados mostram claramente que a compra dos livros utilizados na Universidade (em oposição à cópia reprográfica de capítulos) não está ao alcance dos estudantes. Em todos os cursos, para mais de 3/4 dos estudantes, os custos anuais para a compra de livros está muito próximo da totalidade da renda familiar mensal ou mesmo a ultrapassa."

"This week, a new round of negotiations on the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) is taking place in Wellington, New Zealand. Recent leaks have revealed that the agreement aims at exporting the harshest sanctions related to copyright, patents and trademark infringement, and could turn Internet operators into a private copyright police. In addition, the whole process is an illegitimate circumvention of democracy. ACTA must be stopped."
