Seems Linus Torvalds' vision is finally coming true. Now we need Microsoft to deliver on Bill Gates' promise to make Office and other apps available...

A helpful SEO spammer used text from this paper in a comment on my blog and drew my attention to it. Very interesting explanation of why control detracts from community. Remember, trade control for influence!

While all industry consortium figures need to be treated with scepticism, it's good to see the technology industry fighting back against the well-funded astroturfing of statistics by the media lobby. This report from CCIA is of course funded by vested interests too but it puts on the table the idea that it's not "music & movie professionals versus pirate thief scum kids" as the media lobby has been framing it, but rather "niche media market vs much larger and more diverse 'fair use economy'".

The Berlusconi regime in Italy has achieved a longevity that many thought was impossible in Italian politics, but it seems one of the mechanisms it has used rests at a convergence of politics and media power that is of questionable morality. It's bad enough having Murdock and Fox as potential kingmakers across the world, but in Italy the connection is right in hands of the head of state.

It had to happen eventually. Maybe it was the insulting performance from the European Commission's negotiator that finally provoked someone to break the ring of silence. The draft reveals just how much negotiation is left to do, as well as plenty of horrors about the starting assumptions of the negotiators.

All the arguments about "protecting rights" come to nothing when you realise that a ripped copy of a movie is far better to watch than the spam-laden version you can buy in a store. I have the same gripe about satellite TV in the UK - why should it be stuffed with advertising if I am paying to watch it?

At first sight, this seems bad (that's certainly how Gawker Media want you to think). But as long as the truth is actually being told, this strategy seems a great way to avoid being hounded to death by the media so that they can profit from your misfortune/bravery/whatever. It's not like he tried to charge the police or something; this was ambulance-chasing commercial writers he was dealing with. Treating the media as if they are present purely for the good of humanity is ridiculous, and Gawker are pretty hypocritical to suggest it.

These are great questions which deserve (but won't receive) honest answers. By the way, I hate the name of this party and will not join or support it until it chooses a name which does not demean the victims of crimes at sea and give the pro-big-media lobby a perfect talking point with which to discredit these great arguments.

The work done by legal firm Carter-Ruck on behalf of their client Trafigura will (hopefully) go down in the annals of viral marketing history. Great analysis.
