UCLA Will Resume Streaming Video After Legal Dispute

,----[ Quote ]
| The University of California at Los 
| Angeles has restored its streaming video 
| service about two months after temporarily 
| suspending the service amid complaints 
| from an educational-media trade group.
| The Association for Information and Media 
| Equipment told UCLA in the fall that the 
| university had violated copyright laws by 
| letting instructors use the videos, some 
| of which were full-length productions. 
| UCLA decided that beginning this semester 
| it would suspend the password-protected 
| video-streaming service, available only to 
| students in specific classes.

| resources?
| Ronald Bradford can answer that last 
| question. Bradford, an RDBMS expert and a 
| speaker at the upcoming MySQL Conference 
| and Expo, has been guiding DBAs through 
| key aspects of MySQL integration for 
| years. In the following Q&A, he discusses 
| the pros and cons of migrating from Oracle 
| to MySQL (hint: it's not just about cost 
| savings). He also weighs in on the future 
| of MySQL and its community.
