  1. Twitch apologizes to streamers for its mishandling of music copyright In a blog post, the platform explained why it sent that weird email last month Twitch published a blog post today with the relatively anodyne title “Music-Related Copyright Claims and Twitch.” What was in it, however, was anything but. The post explained exactly why streamers received that strange email notifying them that Twitch had deleted some of their clips and VODs, and it gave creators an update on what tools they can expect to see from the company in the future.
  2. People sometimes ask how the artists will get paid if - no, when - the copyright monopoly is abolished. This question is not based on facts. Every time somebody questions the copyright monopoly, and in particular, whether it’s reasonable to dismantle freedom of the press, freedom of assembly, freedom of speech, freedom of information, and the privacy of correspondence just to maintain a distribution monopoly for an entertainment industry, the same question pops up out of nowhere: “How will the artists get paid?”. The copyright industry has been absolutely phenomenal in misleading the
  3. A pair of award-winning writers decorated by the Queen have told a House of Commons debate that only education can solve the piracy problem . Assemblies on copyright should take place in every school, one suggested, while the other favors letting kids know that it's only J.K Rowling that gets Hollywood money "for writing a little story about wizards." The idea that the copyright wars can be won through education is nothing new, but it’s a notion that’s likely to gain more traction in the coming years. Suing the hell out of file-sharers might currently be popular with trolls, but the mainstr
  4. Music Labels Forgot Their ‘Secret’ Article 13 Weapon, So Dan Bull Used it Against Them Music is widely acknowledged as one of the most potent and emotive ways to tell a story and send a message. Yet, inexplicably, no major artists in favor of Article 13 have used their talent to tell the world why it should pass. In that silence, UK rapper Dan Bull (with support from Grandayy and PewDiePie) has now seized the day - to explain why it shouldn't. After being proposed by the European Commission two years ago, tomorrow the European Parli
  5. A new bill introduced in the U.S. House and Senate this week, proposes to establish a copyright board to address "small claims." Various copyright holders applaud the proposal, stating that this will allow smaller creators to protect their rights without the need for expensive lawsuits. However, digital rights activists and attorneys fear that the CASE Act will benefit so-called copyright trolls as well. This week, new legislation was tabled in the U.S. House and Senate that introduces the creation of a “small claims” process for copyright offenses. The CA
  6. Glenn Fricker didn’t run into any issues when he uploaded a video about digital music editing to YouTube in 2014. But in April, nearly five years and 600,000 views later, he received an email from YouTube notifying him that Warner Music Group had claimed copyright over a 15-second video clip he included of Iron Maiden. As a result, the entire video would now be blocked. Fricker was pissed, and he didn’t know what to do. “YouTube is not very forthcoming with their information or communication,” Fricker told The Verge. “I did have a contact there, but I haven’t heard fr
  7. When a copyright holder says that people have infringed their rights online, delicate issues hang in the balance. Should courts absolutely protect the privacy of alleged infringers and help them stay anonymous, or do the legitimate rights of entertainment companies need to come first. These are just some of the questions just answered by the Federal Court in Ontario that will shape future 'trolling' cases in Canada. Do individuals using BitTorrent to download copyright material from the Internet via their ISP have a right to remain anonymous so that they remain out of reach to rightsholders?
  8. German music collecting society and anti-piracy group GEMA is reporting a legal victory over a popular Usenet service provider. GEMA says it has obtained a "ground breaking" court injunction which compels UseNeXT to prevent copyright infringement on a selection of songs in GEMA's repertoire or face being held liable for their misuse. While the music and movie industries are still developing strategies to deal with illegal file-sharing at the end-user level, tackling Internet companies remains a key component of their anti-piracy arsenals. While pressure is maintained against search engines an
  9. Following legal action initiated by a subsidiary of Warner Music, a Russian court has not only ordered an unauthorized music site's owner to pay damages for copyright infringement, but has handed down a first-of-its-kind ruling to terminate the site's domain name. As the owner of the Spotify-like operation signals his intention to fight back, similar sites in the file-sharing arena will be watching very closely indeed. In order to combat the many hundreds of file-sharing and streaming sites located in Russia, last year local authorities introduced new anti-piracy legislation. The new law, du
  10. With copyright holders seriously getting into their web-blocking stride in the UK, it is now impossible to access any of the most well known torrent sites from a regular web browser without tweaks. TorrentFreak took a look at some of the world’s most popular torrent and streaming sites in order to figure out which ones remain uncensored in the UK and along the way we discovered a few other items of interest. While Hollywood and the music industry are currently working hard to have dozens of millions of infringing links removed from Google, they are increasingly trying to cut off users’ access
  11. There is an increasing trend of companies using the DMCA to censor legitimate content, simply because they find it an embarrassment. In a sorry incident this weekend a self-confessed “little guy” with few resources was targeted with a strike on his channel, even though be broke no laws and made no money. Standing up for people like this in the face of company bullying must be a priority. There can be no doubt that copyright holders have a huge task ahead of them if they are to make even the slightest dent in the availability of unauthorized online content. Google has received more than 2
  12. A problem with the copyright industry is that they are frequently sending out fraudulent copyright monopoly takedown notices to silence criticism, competition, or just political speech. This needs to be as criminal as violating the copyright monopoly from the other end. One recurring problem with the copyright industry is that it gets away scot-free with every glaring and egregious abuse of copyright monopoly law to silence other people, despite breaking the social contract. We have seen examples of the copyright monopoly law being abused into outright censorship again and again and again and
  13. Instagram just threw users of its embedding API under the bus People may need to get permission before embedding someone else's Instagram photo. Enlarge Aurich Lawson 36 with 29 posters participating, including story author Instagram does not provide users of its embedding API a copyright license to display embedded images on other websites, the company said in a Thursday email to Ars Technica. The announcement could come as an unwelcome surprise to users who believed that embedding images, rather than hosting th
