Notes from the Fight Against Surveillance and Censorship: 2014 in Review

Notes from the Fight Against Surveillance and Censorship: 2014 in Review | Piracy , Privacy , Policy , & Copyright | Scoop.it
In recent years, we’ve seen a dramatic, global surge in attempts to censor and surveil users worldwide. Nevertheless, in the face of such threats, I find myself energized and awed by our growing movement. In the past year, we've seen the whole community become more organized, resourceful, and more creative than ever before. While these are long fights, we're in them for the long run. And right now, I think we’re bringing some of the very best to the protection of digital civil liberties. See all of our 2014 year in review blog articles.

Record Labels Lose Big as Court Declares File-Sharing Tools Legal | TorrentFreak

Record Labels Lose Big as Court Declares File-Sharing Tools Legal | TorrentFreak | Piracy , Privacy , Policy , & Copyright | Scoop.it
An epic battle between the world's largest record companies and the creator of software known as the "Spanish Napster" has concluded with defeat for the labels. Veteran developer Pablo Soto informs TorrentFreak that the decision clears the way for even more development, starting today with a brand new, BitTorrent-powered release of his software.

Brandon Harris's curator insight, January 14, 2016 1:23 AM

As I read this article I had mixed feelings to a certain point. I felt like Mr. Soto knew  in fact that his web site was full of copy right infringements, but at the same time like he stated it was not his intent, and he was not in the industry either so it is not like he created the site maliciously. 

 

Pro: They did not win the case against Mr. Soto which allowed the people who used the site to continue doing what every they used the site for, and he was able to continue to create and innovate the way files are shared.

 

Cons: nothing was resolved as fare as piracy. Everyone who was apart of stealing the music most likely are still doing it and there is nothing anyone can do about it for the most part, but I feel like in this case labels should have the power to take their stuff down at any given time at the least.

Soundcloud Doing a Deal With Record Labels Not to Get Sued | TorrentFreak

Soundcloud Doing a Deal With Record Labels Not to Get Sued | TorrentFreak | Piracy , Privacy , Policy , & Copyright | Scoop.it
Soundcloud caused controversy recently by letting Universal Records delete content and now it's becoming clear why. Soundcloud, Universal, Sony and Warner are said to be on the cusp of a deal, one in which the music hoster gives the labels royalties and up to 15% of its business in exchange for not getting sued.

http://bit.ly/1ngTAnX

Brandon Harris's curator insight, January 14, 2016 12:44 AM

This article is about Soundcloud pretty much partnering up with major record companies in order to prevent getting sued for content that has been uploaded and continue to get uploaded by users that do not own any rights to the music. 

 

Pros: Artist will be able to get royalties for their work and they will be able to have more control to say what is executable and what is not.

 

Cons: now that Soundcloud will be working along with these major labels; creativity and samples used from up coming artist will have to go through the legal process of being cleared verses just pretty much having freedom to have fun with the music and getting it heard on a wide scale. On top of that I am sure that since royalties will get involved; there maybe new features that will have a price tagged on.

MATT, JK's curator insight, April 23, 2014 11:02 PM

Audio quality is everything. I personally think that the analog sound is easily superior to a digital sound because of the small details that remain intact on a pressed vinyl that simply cannot hang onto a music file.

YouTube Hurts Music Album Sales, Research Finds | TorrentFreak | Piracy , Privacy , Policy , & Copyright | Scoop.it
The music industry has often cited piracy as the main reason for the decline in music sales over the past decade, but new research suggests that YouTube may have played a role as well. Based on Warner Music's YouTube blackout, researchers conclude that the video streaming portal cost the label up to $40 million in lost album sales per year.

Brandon Harris's curator insight, January 14, 2016 12:58 AM

I found this article interesting because I too use Youtube as a outlook for new music. Despite the record labels that agree that their sales have dropped dramatically because of Youtube; I feel like it actually helps just as much. A lot of the times when I hear of a new artist the first thing I do is check them out on Youtube. Honestly i feel like as long as the product is good you won't have a problem trying to sell it.

 

Pros: I feel like youtube is a good source when it comes to finding new artist or listening to you favorite artist. I feel like it is a great promotional tool as well because everything is right there and it allows easy access to your favorite bands.

 

Cons: I can see why major labels are sketchy as well though because Youtube gives you a couple ways to download music, videos etc.
