The Music Industry's Crisis Writ Large

RincewindTVD Re:Let it die. (554 comments)

I think he/she is trying to say that they don't charge for the game.
They charge for the service that the game connects to, and this is an on-going charge.

Not the best example, but I think I can see where he/she was coming from.

The Music Industry's Crisis Writ Large

RincewindTVD Re:Let it die. (554 comments)

So for "poor equipment that won't go as loud as I want" your recommended solution is to crank the volume anyway and have it sound like crap?

How much repeat band mixing work have you had?

97 of Top 100 Classified Sites Are Craigslist

RincewindTVD Re:Craigslist has a HUGE amount of scams. (193 comments)

I thought cashier's cheques were guaranteed by the originating bank?
Last time I made one they took the money out of my account, then handed me the cheque. I no longer had the money, I had a note guaranteed by the bank. I could hand this to someone else and they would get the money from the bank, not from me.

Does anyone know if NZ banks have this issue?

Judge Rules WoW Bot Violates DMCA

RincewindTVD Re:Doesn't matter. (498 comments)

I wonder if it could go the other way.

Glider worked, then they updated Warden to circumvent the Glider IP, disabling glider and interfering with its work.

Serious question, does the DMCA only apply to the bigger software? or is Glider not copyrighted?

EMI music forces NZ National Party to recall DVDs

RincewindTVD RincewindTVD writes  |  more than 6 years ago

RincewindTVD (1011435) writes "Music 'similar' to Coldplay's Clocks has forced promotional material from NZ's National political party to be recalled, including DVDs sent out and online media.

Musicologist Dr Graeme Downes notes that the song Clocks and hte music in the promotional material are very similar and that he would not be willing to help defend the copyright infringement claims.

It looks like the Auckland artist and the production company that made this for the National party might be in a bit of hot water over this.

Forced recall details here: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/section/story.cfm?c_id=280&objectid=10480032&ref=rss
