Links for the week

Good readin’ at the moment:

Woebot great on Italian Prog.

SohoTheDog has 8 sentences none of us ever want to hear about classical music again (particularly no.3 – ugh).

K-Punk’s interview with Kode9 for FACT is excellent.

Limewire is suing the RIAA, alleging that the RIAA’s

goal was simple: to destroy any online music distribution service they did not own or control, or force such services to do business with them on exclusive and/or other anticompetitive terms so as to limit and ultimately control the distribution and pricing of digital music, all to the detriment of consumers.

Meanwhile, in Britain, the dinosaurs flail open a new front – this time demanding tax breaks for A&R comparable to what pharma corps get for R&D…

Hey, guess what – consumers don’t like DRM.

Nor do libraries.

And Hungarians – when they’re not protesting against their lying ex-Communist tycoon prime minister, anyway – are well organised on protesting against the RIAA too. Gotta love ’em.
