| Radiohead, the band that made millions of dollars by giving away their music 
| for free, has very little to complain about when it comes to piracy. On the 
| contrary, in a landmark file-sharing case, Radiohead has responded positively 
| to a request to testify against the RIAA.

,----[ Quote ]
| Thanks to the magic of the class action mechanism, the settlement will confer 
| on Google a kind of legal immunity that cannot be obtained at any price 
| through a purely private negotiation. It confers on Google immunity not only 
| against suits brought by the actual members of the organizations that sued 
| Google, but also against suits brought by anyone who doesn’t explicitly opt 
| out. That means that Google will be free to mine the vast body of orphan 
| works without fear of liability.      



SXSW 2009 on BitTorrent: 6 GB of Free Music

,----[ Quote ]

| popular in the United States. For the fifth year in a row, SXSW has released
| a DRM-free, RIAA-safe collection of songs totaling 6 GB, which can all be
| downloaded for free, thanks to BitTorrent.


EU Invests $22 Million in Next-Generation BitTorrent Client

,----[ Quote ]
| A few weeks ago we reported that the EU Greens launched a pro-filesharing
| campaign named “I Wouldn’t Steal”. In a continued effort to support the
| development of P2P technology, the European Union has now invested $22
| million in the development of an open-source BitTorrent client.
