Copyright User: online resource for UK content producers

"We aim to provide answers to the most pressing concerns that creators have about copyright. To find out what was most confusing to users, we took two approaches. First, we analysed the 200 most frequently asked questions about copyright posted online by creators and consumers, and we filtered those down to the most important 20 which you can find answered in the 'FAQs' section. Second, we spoke to creators themselves. For each of the main artistic mediums we produced a video which contains interviews with creators about their artistic process, thoughts and questions about copyright."

Spotify: online music jukebox forced to restrict playlists

"Spotify has come to the attention of those forward–thinking folks the work in record publishing, and has now been forced to restrict some of their playlists, and indeed remove many tracks altogether.

Basically, Spotify is a revolutionary web–based streaming service with an awesome collection of tunes and an excellent interface to create and share playlists.

Of course, it's just the sort of thing that makes record companies sweat. Despite the fact that there's no way to download or own any tracks on Spotify, this seems a concept too far–streaming and sharing music for discovery and enjoyment.

In a statement released last week, the Luxembourg company that owns Spotify said that it is removing songs and adding restrictions acording to country. This is because licensing varies from country to country, so something that we can play in the UK for example, may not be legal to broadcast on a playlist you share with someone from Sweden."
