Nine Inch Nails Fans Create Incredible Live DVD From Footage: Encourage Everyone To Share Widely

| But Bittorrent can't be used for any 
| legitimate purpose, right? And musicians 
| can't possibly embrace what the technology 
| allows? Once again, we're seeing why those 
| who embrace what technology allows will do 
| just fine moving forward. It's only those 
| who think that the answer is to bring out 
| the lawyers and try to hold back progress 
| who will find themselves struggling to 
| create business models that work.


5 Legal Cases That Defined Music in 2009

| Almost a decade after the major labels

| courts are still writing the rules of the 
| road for the music businessâs digital 
| future.


Barry the Inaccurate

,----[ Quote ]
| Barry Sookmanâs most recent post titled 
| Toying with funny math to downplay Canadaâs 
| role as a piracy haven is, at best, 
| inaccurate. Since Iâm suffering from a nasty 
| head cold Iâm only going to cover the most 
| noticeable errors - and then go back to 
| suffering.
| In paragraph three, Barry claims that 
| Mininova is down. A quick visit to the site 
| shows that he is in error, that Mininova is 
| still in operation. He also claims that the 
| court ordered it shut down. This is 
| incorrect. The court ordered that certain 
| torrents be removed. Nothing more. Nothing 
| less.
| In paragraph four, Barry claims that a court 
| ordered that the The Pirate Bay be shut 
| down. He does not mention that an appeal has 
| been filed. In a later paragraph he claims 
| that The Pirate Bay will be shut down 
| shortly, however the shut down order is on 
| hold until the appeal is complete. To the 
| best of my knowledge a court date has not 
| been picked as yet, and since the shut down 
| cannot take effect until after the appeal, 
| his claim that it will be shut down shortly 
| is specious at best.


Where Do My Music Rights Start and Stop?

| In an effort to be subversive, I forwarded 
| the email to Fred with a note that said 
| âWild how the music licensing stuff is 
| stupid.â  He responded immediately with 
| âYup.  Rights holders fuck everything up.â  
| I wonder what the machines think of that?



SuperGamer Live DVD

,----[ Quote ]
| A while back I took at a Linux distribution geared solely toward playing
| games called Live Linux Gaming. Well thereâs another remastered distribution
| for gamers called SuperGamer. SuperGamer is based on VectorLinux and requires
| a dual layer DVD. It weighs in at roughly 8GB so itâs a bit on the chunky
| side as a download. But, given the number of games it comes with (more on
| that below), you can understand why itâs such a large download. SuperGamer is
| based on the kernel and can run on 32 or 64 bit computers.
| [...]
| SuperGamer is a great addition to the remastered distro collection of any
| intermediate or advanced Linux user. Itâs well worth a download even given
| itâs large file size. Linux gamers in particular should probably consider
| this a must-have given the level of convenience in having all of its games
| right at their fingertips in a Live CD.
