Unbelievable! All I had to do was check into things while waiting for a late night telephone call, and all sorts of links appeared! On the other hand, I’m still getting the hang of using this weblog, so I lost my first pass at the list. But, I think I have put everything back.
(7 items listed below)
- An update to a Wired.com article about putting images into digital music. Slashdot discusses the article as an application of steganography in digital music.
- More irony from the realm of the DMCA. Sony has served Blizzard with a DMCA cease and desist upon the discovery that there was a major in-house P2P system sharing MP3s. Now maybe they know what the bnetd guys are going through. Slashdot has a discussion, too.
- Those pesky CD copy protection technologies are getting more press. The Celine Dion CD has demonstrably caused problems, as well as those of her sisters Shakira and J-Lo. The Slashdot discussion has links to other topics, including how to beat some the systems, and it is itself a followup to earlier discussions.
- An article in MacUser UK talks about the problem, as well as the Apple posting on the tech support boards.
- The Register has an article examining the likelihood that pending EU legislation will match (or exceed) the DMCA anti-circumvention provisions for digital media.
- Finally, Time Magazine has an article about Fairtunes.com and how they take the record companies out of music distribution.
