BitTorrent Sites May Be Censored in Italy

,----[ Quote ]
| The Italian Supreme Court has ruled that ISPs 
| can be forced to block BitTorrent sites, even 
| if they are not hosted in Italy or operated by 
| Italian citizens. According to the decision by 
| the Supreme Court, sites offering torrent files 
| that link to copyrighted material are engaging 
| in criminal activity.
| [...]
| The fact that a site is not hosted in Italy or 
| operated by Italians is irrelevant according to 
| the court. The site is visited by many Italians 
| who (in part) use it to share copyrighted 
| material, the Supreme Court argued.

| distribution of copyrighted songs.


Artists To National Gallery Of Canada: 'Pay Us Again And Again And Again!'

,----[ Quote ]
| Rose M. Welch writes in to point to the
| latest example of entitlement culture gone
| wrong. Apparently, two groups representing
| artists in Canada, The Canadian Artists'
| Representation, known as CARFAC, and the
| Regroupement des artistes en arts visuels
| du Quebec (RAAV), have filed a complaint
| against the National Gallery in Canada. The
| National Gallery already pays artists an
| exhibition fee to display their art. But,
| CARFAC and RAAV think that the National
| Gallery needs to pay them multiple times
| for the same artworks, because the Gallery
| also uses some of the artwork it displays
| in brochures, catalogs and other offerings.
