YouTube and the music industry are both wrong on Article 13
<a href="">Julia Reda</a>, eurodiputada pel Partit Pirata d'Alemanya, esciu un nou article sobre els perills de l'infame <a href="">article 13</a> de la directiva europea sobre drets d'autor. Considera dos possibles escenaris, ambdós inacceptables: A) que només les "empreses fiables" puguin penjar vídeos (el web com a "televisió per cable 2.0") i B) que s'acceptin com a mal menor els filtres de càrrega algorítmics (terreny en el qual Google té un avantatge competitiu clar). En tots dos casos, els principals perjudicats seran els usuaris i creadors individuals.

Radiohead’s lawsuit against Lana Del Rey shows how all music is stolen
Hip-hop and rap are eternally riddled with claims of creative theft. The entire genre of jazz is essentially a study in plagiarism […] That pop music tends to overuse the same infamous four-chord progression doesn’t help things, either. To assert that any song is entirely original would be to say it stands apart from thousands of years of musical history […]

One of the net's most important freedom canaries died the day the W3C greenlit web-wide DRM
