Quote:
A major battle over cloud-music services has been resolved, and on balance, it looks like a pretty solid win for the small music-locker service run by MP3tunes. However, the service and its founder Michael Robertson were found liable for infringing copyright on hundreds of songs, because it didnít go far enough in responding to takedown letters sent by the music label EMI.


The battle never ends.

Simple. Anybody has "issues" with Google (Music) I'm sure their SEO mysteriously gets much worse.

Interesting, the whole Google music thing.

I wonder how Itunes feels about it .

Sigh.

As always: "We're sorry. Music Beta is currently only available in the United States"

I'm pretty sure that won't change. Never!
In my country you can't even listen to most music on youtube. With 8 out of 10 songs I get "This music is not available in your country. We're sorry."
All this money-craving companies (no, I don't mean Google, but the major musiclabels and the like) will destroy the interwebbbs one day. I heard a rumor that Canada even put a ban on flatrates and telcos establish metered internet usage.

In Germany they have started to do the same (they still call it flatrate, but if your traffic exceeds 100GB (up- and downstream) your line is cut back to about 700kb/s). An exception are the premium entertainment packages, but they are quite expensive.
Sorry for going offtopic, but any time recently I noticed more and more restrictions concerning this matter. I wish this B.A. guys would keep their hands off our net.

The all mighty ISP trinity (Orange,SFR, Bouygues) think about doing the same in France. Till now everybody has an aDSL connection with unlimited traffic. Other powerful (used to be alternative) ISP Free and Numericable refused to be a part of it.

Howdy,

If you want to watch music videos on youtube use a tor proxy or something of the like.

As for throttling internet in the USA, they tried and got caught.

I get 22Mbps down and a fucking shitty 3.50 up.
And it used to be slower .
