Kane Robinson and Richard Graham imprisoned for illegally distributing music which, in total, could have cost industry £240m
Justin Avant's insight:

Governments try to shut down sites and arrest their makers of people who illegally upload or provide illegal music but it is impossible to stop everyone when sites are so spread out over cyberspace and have multiple people who will run them or run themselves.

Justin Avant's insight:

Davey B's curator insight, December 3, 2014 5:36 PM

This article seems to be credible for the most part except for the domain.

Albert Lochard's curator insight, December 7, 2014 4:57 PM

This article is about BMG and Round Hill suing Cox Communications for copyright infringement. I can agree with BMG and Round Hill Music with the fact this Internet service provider doesn't do enough to punish those who download music illegally. By downloading music illegally you are stealing from the artist and the publisher and it s something that shouldn't be done at all.

Daniel Ek set out to save the music industry. Could his streaming service wreck it instead? John Seabrook reports.

Via Chuck Sherwood, Senior Associate, TeleDimensions, Inc
Justin Avant's insight:

Spotify is good for users but is not for the artist themselves. It gives artist a fraction of what they would make for album sales, but it also gives them more money compared to pirated sources and or youtube streams.
