UK Recording Industry: Investigate Google For Not Giving Us Money

| Of course, what he really means is that he's finally realizing that Google 
| actually has the leverage in this fight. They have the value that musicians 
| want: a platform to gain tremendous amounts of attention, that many musicians 
| are using to successfully build an audience. That's the value. Google doesn't 
| need those music videos to make money, so it's fine without them. But, 
| musicians sure could use the boost that YouTube gives them.      


London imposes de-facto 9PM curfew on under-16s

,----[ Quote ]
| London cops have been given the power to "disperse" anyone under 16, gathered 
| in groups of two or more, from almost all of central London, after 9PM. The 
| police don't have to see the kids doing anything wrong, they only have to 
| believe "the presence or behaviour of a group of two or more persons in any 
| public place in the relevant locality has resulted, or is likely to result, 
| in any members of the public being intimidated, harassed, alarmed or 
| distressed."       




French Recording Industry Sues SourceForge For Hosting Open Source P2P

| (SPPF), a group that represents French record labels, is now trying to sue a
| bunch of non-French file sharing applications, as well as SourceForge.


Network Civilization: Peer-to-Peer and the Rise of Green Capitalism

| Just as the three quarters of oil engineers now agree that Peak Oil is in
| sight within the next decade (after that, oil production can only decline),
| can we also posit that we may have reached a moment of Peak Hierarchy, a
| moment in history in which it is no longer large centralized organizations
| that are most efficient or productive, but rather those that are organized as
| distributed networks and can draw on peer producting communities?
