Spotify has updated its privacy policy, and users should be careful about what they agree to. The music streaming giant now wants phone sensor information to determine if users are moving or standing still, GPS location, photos, contacts and much more.

"Assuming, for the sake of argument, that the RIAA gets its way here and BitTorrent is forced to somehow insert a special "YER A PIRATE!" filter into uTorrent, two things would happen almost immediately: 1. People would quickly create slightly modified versions of works to get around the hashes and 2. people would move to other BitTorrent clients -- coming from companies that aren't willing to work with the entertainment industry and aren't helping more artists learn how to embrace the technology to make more money and reach more fans. 

"It's the same move repeated over and over again by the industry: rather than figure out how to make use of the technology that fans like in order to do more, they attack the technology and then don't understand why people get pissed off and no longer want to give them any money any more."

The music biz is definitely going through some changes, this article has some information. One quote:

"record labels took home 73 cents out of every dollar paid out by Spotify and competitor Deezer, while songwriters got 16 cents and artists got 11"

That ain't good.

It doesn't take a big-shot music executive or a statistician to see that the music industry is in a major period of upheaval.

Part I. Bug Problems. 1. Apple Music doesn't work with Home Sharing. So, that means you can't play songs from your collection over Wifi to your iPhone or iPad (unless you keep the older iOS version, which doesn't support Apple Music). 2. Which also means that Apple Music doesn't work on Apple TV ...

For my musician friends, this is worth a read. We're going through enormous changes in the music business, and we've just started:

The recording is old news. Last century. Dead. The Access versus Ownership debate should have finished 10 years ago, but we're still bickering. Access models (eg. streaming) are not supposed to replace Ownership models. They're supposed to...

+David Pakman posted a link to this on Facebook. If you care about patent reform, read it- we are letting way too much go to patent trolls.

Patent trolls cost the economy over $61 billion a year, but the real policy solution needs to address junk patents too which are stifling innovation.

+David Andrew Wiebe has written a great ebook about the new music industry:

As with any project of this scale, it’s hard to recall the exact sequence of events and timeline for each, but I will do my best to re-tell how this eBook came about, why it took so long to complete, and what I learned from working on it. Conception Many years ago (I don’t remember …

In 1999 Sun's CEO Scott McNealy famously declared "You have zero privacy anyway, get over it". Microsoft is obeying his instructions.

For quite some time now, we've been pointing out that the hatred directed at Spotify and other music streaming services in some circles is misplaced. Spotify is paying out a ton of money to the copyright holders (approximately 70% of its...

Gave at the office so many times and of course the kettle fund. Unlike other philantrophic charites, at least most of the $ isn't going for the staff.

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.
