Video: Trailer from the Napster Movie, Downloaded | Evolver.fm | Entertainment & copyright | Scoop.it

Why is music too free to be expensive and too expensive to be free? Napster isn’t entirely responsible, but it sure was a lot easier for the average music fan than Usenet.

Yesterday, Metallica’s Lars Ulrich hugged Napster co-founder Sean Parker at a Spotify media event in New York. Over a decade ago, the two had a very different relationship, of course.

An upcoming movie, Downloaded, from filmmaker Alex Winter (a.k.a. “Bill”), features both men as it tells the story of one of the most influential software applications, social networks, and music delivery systems of our time.

Demonoid: Will The Comeback Kid Return? | TorrentFreak | Entertainment & copyright | Scoop.it

Today it’s been one month since Demonoid was driven offline by a massive DDoS attack. In the weeks that followed things went from bad to worse and the site’s Ukrainian hosting provider eventually pulled the plug on the site following a request from Mexican authorities. Despite the legal trouble, many of the site’s former users are refusing to give up hope that Demonoid will live up to its reputation as the comeback kid.

RIAA: Online Music Piracy Pales In Comparison to Offline Swapping | TorrentFreak

A leaked presentation from the RIAA shows that online file-sharing isn’t the biggest source of illegal music acquisition in the U.S. The confidential data reveals that 65% of all music files are “unpaid” but the vast majority of these are obtained through offline swapping.

How Corruption Is Strangling U.S. Innovation

How Corruption Is Strangling U.S. Innovation | Entertainment & copyright | Scoop.it

If there's been one topic that has entirely dominated the post-election landscape, it's the fiscal cliff. Will taxes be raised? Which programs will be cut? Who will blink first in negotiations? For all the talk of the fiscal cliff, however, I believe the US is facing a much more serious problem, one that has simply not been talked about at all: corruption. But this isn't the overt, "bartering of government favors in return for private kickbacks" corruption. Instead, this type of corruption has actually been legalized. And it is strangling both US competitiveness, and the ability for US firms to innovate.
