Tukholma. Ruotsissa on leimahtanut kiivas väittely siitä, pitäisikö erilaisten tiedostojen lataaminen internetistä olla vapaata vai tulisiko se luokitella rikolliseksi toiminnaksi. Keskusteluun ovat löylyä heittäneet myös Ruotsin akatemia ja tekijänoikeuksiaan vaalivat luovat taiteilijat. Expressen ja Svenska Dagbladet -lehdissä käydyn kiistelyn käynnisti artikkeli, jossa seitsemän kokoomuslaista kansanedustajaa julisti, että tiedostojen kuten musiikin ja elokuvien vapaan lataamisen internetistä pitäisi olla jokamiehen oikeus.

One of the world's largest hard disk manufacturers has blocked its customers from sharing online their media files that are stored on networked drives. Western Digital says the decision to block sharing of music and audio files is an anti-piracy effort.

Digital activists say it is the latest step in a so-called war on copyright theft that is damaging consumer rights. The shift to a digital world in which all forms of content, from books, music, and TV programmes to films, can be shared effortlessly around the world between people with an internet connection has produced an unprecedented upheaval in attitudes to media, copyright and consumer rights.
[qi:005] It was sort of a good-news-bad-news kind of email. Toby Padilla, founder of MusicMobs , wrote in to let me know that he was joining Last.fm as VP of desktop & client software , and will be working on developing cool products for the social music company based in London. The bad news: MusicMobs, well-known for their Mobster recommendation software, was shutting down.
Keeping with the theme of Mike’s Online Photo Editing Overview , I wanted to cover some of the entrants into social music. Music was probably the first type of rich media to really go “Web 2.0″ and it’s become a pretty popular place for startups. As a result, there are some great Rich Internet Applications built around social music.
