Will Adele, Radiohead and all other Indies be blocked by YouTube?
Google is preparing a paid music service where you can listen video clips ad-free and download them to your mobile. All commercial labels have signed an agreement but the Indie labels refuse.

They say the offered conditions are not fair and that Google refuses to negotiate with their representing agency Merlin  At heart seems to be the difference in treatment. While the big three, Universal, Warner Music and Sony have been invited to talk precise terms of an agreement, the Indie representative Merlin was ignored.

Instead Google tries to force non negotiable agreements onto the small individual artist labels, effectively bypassing their agency and weakening their position. A complaint about abuse of monopoly has been filed with the European Commission.  

Speaking to the Financial Times, Robert Kyncl, YouTube's head of content and business operations, said videos from independents could be blocked "in a matter of days".

The main threat Google is using is a complete boycott from Youtube for every label that doesn't sign a agreement for the future commercial service. So Adele, Radiohead, Arctic Monkeys, Arcade Fire, etc will all disappear, even from the ad-sponsored free Youtube.

Whatsup Google? Youtube made it possible to have a music career without a contract with the big three. Now you want to kill the Indie movement?

APIs should not be copyrightable so that programmers can reimplement interfaces to support testing, interoperability, and to encourage competition.

Unfortunately iPhone 5/5C only... for now.
For $349, you too can see in the dark like an intergalactic big game hunter.

Basing law on stories (instead of logical risk assesment) is a horrible way to make a law... though unfortunately is seen as increasing chance of being reelected.

A study gives number to the cost of patent trolls (patent asserting entities) and it is huge.

Heavy patent litigation scared off about $22 billion in VC funding over 5 years.
