"As a working, successful musician and producer, he knew as well as anyone that unlimited copyright protection could hinder creation"

So the movie industry is in a panic about piracy, and they keep making more money? Something is wrong here...

"There have been countless ‘anti-piracy’ laws passed, over decades, and yet none of them have had more than a minor, temporary effect on piracy at best."

"It’s not that they’re paying so much in royalties for music, their only product as far as we can tell.  It’s because they’re spending too damn much money running the company."

Pandora isn't my choice for streaming whatsoever. They are inconsequential in anything that has to do with me. It's there, but so what?

Ah- so Pandora wants to cut royalties because their SG&A (“Selling General & Administrative”) costs are going up, despite the fact that their total revenue is growing by leaps and bounds? Shell game it is...

https://musictechpolicy.wordpress.com/2015/12/15/pandoras-shell-game-with-royalty-and-revenue/
Remember when Pandora used to complain about how royalty costs were over half their revenue? Let's take a look at their income statement for the last 12 months ("trailing twelve months" or "ttm") ...

What Pandora pays is really small. Safe-Xchange, PBC is going to help change that.

Great article from +Rick Falkvinge:

"sickening existential defense from an industry that makes sure that 99.99% of music authors never see a single cent in royalty. (A more proper question would be how a music author or composer can possibly earn a living with the copyright industry still in existence.)"

Simple answer to the question on how we can earn a living? We can't, unless your a Glass or Adams, the rest of us are tutoring for cigarettes and coffee money.

This is what we've been talking about- "Muzit uses DMCA notices as a means to connect artists and fans."

https://torrentfreak.com/startup-leverages-dmca-notices-as-artist-marketing-too-160106l/
Every day millions of pirates are being tracked by companies working for the entertainment industries. This data is often used to warn or even sue alleged offenders, but a new startup is taking a different route. Instead of punishing pirates they treat them as fans, allowing artists to use DMCA notices as a marketing tool.

"It counters the totally false narrative by certain legacy copyright system supporters that copyright is necessary to get books published and also that without copyright, no one would bother to sell the works, because they could just be copied by others."

A few years ago, we first wrote about the supposed missing black hole of culture due to copyright, based on some excellent research by Paul Heald, looking at the availability of new books on Amazon based on the years they were published. It produced...

I love this place. If you go into a Radio Shack the prices are through the roof, the selection is weak, and the people working at the store know very little. At Al Lasher's you get exactly the opposite.

I have been nearsighted for many years and have seen many optometrists. Recently I saw Dr. Michael G. Kiyomoto, and, in my opinion, he is absolutely excellent. Very detailed, very careful, lots of explanation, was not trying to sell me glasses. I strongly recommend Dr. Kiyomoto.
