EMI Tries To Hide Kids Education Anti-Piracy Objective

,----[ Quote ]
| A music industry consultant has changed her Linkedin 
| profile when it was revealed that the music lessons sheâs 
| giving in schools arenât quite as they seem. Ruth Katz, who 
| worked in anti-piracy enforcement for EMI and still works 
| for the company as a consultant, is lecturing kids as young 
| as five on anti-piracy issues.

EMI To Mom & Pops: Eat Cake Bitch

,----[ Quote ]
| So let me get this straight. EMI intends to save money by not selling their 
| CDâs to independent retailers. Instead they want these retailers to go to one

Back to school with RIAA-funded copyright curriculum

,----[ Quote ]
| School kids in American could certainly stand to learn
| about copyright in the classroomâit's a fascinating
| topic that increasingly impacts the life of every
| "digital native" and intersects with law, history, art,
| and technology. But should they be exposed to industry-
| funded materials meant to teach kids:
|
| That taking music without paying for it ("songlifting")
| is illegal and unfair to others (RIAA)
| Why illegally downloading music hurts more people than
| they think (ASCAP)
| How the DVD-sniffing dogs, Lucky and Flo, help uncover
| film piracy (MPAA)
| To use problem-solving approaches to investigate and
| understand film piracy (The Film Foundation)
| The importance of using legal software as well as the
| meaning of copyright laws and why it's essential to
| protect copyrighted works such as software (Business
| Software Alliance)

Michael Robertson Wants To Crowdsource Proof Of EMI's Lies: You Lie EMI Bookmarklet Available

,----[ Quote ]
| EMI has been involved in a lawsuit with MP3Tunes for a
| while now. The whole lawsuit seems weird, since
| MP3Tunes is about creating a storage locker for the
| songs you already have. But one of the points that
| MP3Tunes made in response to EMI's claims is that EMI
| was lying in saying that it has never authorized MP3s
| to be available online.

Canadian Copyright Levy Group Wants New iPod Tax... But It's Not Really For The Artists

,----[ Quote ]
| But they're back at it again. And it's really no wonder.
| Already the cost of a blank CD in Canada has an astounding
| 90% of the price go to this levy. But what happens to all
| that money? Well, the CPCC claims that it needs this levy to
| sustain the livelihood of artists. That's also its reasoning
| for extending it to iPods. But, Howard Knopf dug into the
| numbers a bit and notes how laughable that claim is. First,
| CPCC claims that its brought in over $150 million from the
| blank CD levy, and handed it out to 97,000 rights holders
| "most of whom would not be able to continue their careers
| without this revenue."

MPAA: We Don't Need No Stinking Evidence!

,----[ Quote ]
| You get some positive news, such as the Amicus brief filed by the EFF and
| others in the Jammie Thomas case, which could net her a new trial.
|
| But also on Friday, the MPAA filed its own brief, one which basically says it
| feels evidence isn't necessary in the case of one of its copyright
| infringement trials.
