UK music industry seeks review of law allowing fans to copy music

UK music industry seeks review of law allowing fans to copy music | Copyright | Scoop.it
Copyright legislation permits people who have legally purchased music to make duplicates, prompting legal action from industry bodies
Sebastian Jimenez's insight:

I think that although for me (a person that wants to sell music in the future) what they are doing is good for them and the artists but bad for the consumer because no one wants to buy an album three times just because you use three different devices, the only thing they are going to achieve is going to be more people switching to apps such as Pandora, Spotify, 8trakcs, e.t.c.

New Book On The History Of Music, Copyright And Piracy Shows How Copyright Tends To Hold Back Music | Techdirt

New Book On The History Of Music, Copyright And Piracy Shows How Copyright Tends To Hold Back Music | Techdirt | Copyright | Scoop.it
Reason is running a very interesting review of a new book by Alex Sayf Cummings, called Democracy of Sound: Music Piracy and the Remaking of American Copyright in the Twentieth Century. It reiterates many of the points that we've made before...
Sebastian Jimenez's insight:

This article touches a very good point about copyright where it surpasses the common use of copyright for people to not steal artists' songs but they restrain people to copy ideas or just to have likely parts in their songs making it more difficult for people to come up with something new because with the amount of music that has been invented up to date we have to admit that almost everything has been invented yet and everything that we can do now is just variations of other pieces.I do not thing that copyright is a bad idea at all; I just think it is getting to extreme with what you can and what you cannot do.

Sebastian Jimenez's insight:

I think this article is credible enough because of the detailed information they describe and for the hyperlinks that would redirect you to a page talking about some of the information given in the article, plus the article does not seem biased.

Music Industry says 'Don't Worry' About Twitch Copyright Changes

Adam Brant reassures gamers about changes to Twitch's copyright policies that mutes videos with copyrighted music. Support the Show :D PATREON: http://www.pa...
Sebastian Jimenez's insight:

I think this is a bad idea because when people are playing video games and streaming them, they are not listening to those songs in order to get money, they are just playing them because they like those songs and they are in some kind of way advertising those songs. I think that there could be an agreement that the streamer just says the name of the song and the artist like giving royalties and there is no problem; but then again looking it from the other side there are some streamers that do get money from their streams, I think they should be the ones getting muted not the others that just stream for fun purposes.

“You could be liable for $150k in penalties—settle instead for $20 per song”

Growing copyright cop Rightscorp hopes to be a profitable alternative to "six strikes."
Sebastian Jimenez's insight:

This article talks about a very good way to stop copyright that ISP probably is going to start that I think internet providers from united states should start doing too; it is a way for us "wanna be' musicians to ensure a good future in the music industry where we do not get to lose money by the illegally downloaded music.
