Excellent legal result that narrows the ability of the music industry to tax new technology. People will pay for value, so it's time for these folk to create value instead of clinging to their outdated concept of their market.

My own conversations of late suggest that wiser minds (or rather, minds that can make the reptile see the difference between food and fear) are starting to prevail in the various publishing industries, and the tone is softening as business models that leverage the realities of the 21st century instead of fighting them start to succeed.

Just found the motherlode of UK Amazon MP3 free downloads - seems there are a large number of large sampler albums for "TuneCore" on there. Busy downloading them, there has to be something good in there somewhere :-)

As well as being a fellow digital rights activist, Cory Doctorow is one of my favourite authors and an entrepreneur too. His latest book, "With A Little Help", is self-published and he's trying every approach possible to make it succeed in the ways we're both advocating for the new meshed society. This link will let you download - for free - the entire audio book. I am really looking forward to his experience report of this whole venture.

Not content with attempting blanket litigation against its fans, the movie industry also wants to chill the efforts of any lawyers who might help them defend themselves. If they put half as much effort into satisfying the demand expressed by downloaders they would earn much more money without also exhibiting sociopathy.

JP has written here a long article about the potential unintended consequences of the Digital Economy Bill for the music industry. I disagree slightly with his continued focus on the downloads aspect. The biggest problems with the bill are that, in the name of protecting Cliff Richard's pension, it will remove photographers' rights, eliminate open wifi, enable easy censorship for unethical corporations and introduce other abuses the way the DMCA did)

His analysis is still worth reading to bring home the fact that the Bill dabbles inexpertly in an incredibly complex area of interlocking ecosystems and will upset them just as surely as introducing cane toads did in Australia.

Great source of free downloads of music by emerging artists. Worth bookmarking as the selection changes every eight weeks.

yet another illustration why the proposed three-strikes laws are unbalanced and unjust. The onus continues to be on the accused to prove innocence, usually at great cost and after summary judgment. This cannot be allowed to stand; we need to educate the general population about why it's their freedoms at risk and not those of anonymous abusers.

Seems Amazon US has started providing a URL for the list of free tracks posted for the week. Very handy. I like all but one of these, well worth a visit.

"While the government and the music industry posture about illegal filesharing, smaller, smarter companies are simply out-competing it" -- Copyright abuse of most kinds is just a message to the market saying "business model available". We don't need new laws to protect the incumbents, we need entrepreneurs to outpace them.
