After a testing few months for Spotify with criticism from artists, the streaming music service has a new foe: dance brand Ministry of Sound. 

 

The company is suing Spotify for copyright infringement, claiming that the service has refused to remove user playlists that mirror Ministry of Sound compilation albums, including some that use the brand’s name in their titles.

Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, September 4, 2013 12:34 PM


I'm not a lawyer and I don't know how British law will rule that. But the mere existence of a lawsuit shows some believe enough in the value of content curation - what the Ministry of Sound effectively provides when producing their famous compilation albums - to think it should be protected by copyright or trademark law.


Seems a bit meta? Probably. And it also shows the limits of copyright law growingly challenged by the remix culture.

This is timely, discussing copyright with students this week. Thank you!

A. Brian Dengler's comment, September 5, 2013 3:14 PM
This is a fascinating issue. The names of songs listed in alphabetical order would be mere facts, and facts are not protected by copyright law, at least in the US. However, compilations that include editorial judgment in its selection of songs (the songs may fit a certain genre, reached a certain point of sales and appeal to a specific market), just may be protected by copyright. However, then you get into other analysis: did the postings on Spotify "copy" the Ministry of Sound's compilations, and how much originality did Ministry of Sound use to create the compilation? The outcome will be fascinating.

Pinterest allows its users to create virtual bulletin boards by pinning content from across the web, including photos and recipes.

 

There’s no doubt that Pinterest has exploded in popularity in recent months.

 

But with that boom has come concerns for some users about copyright law.
