Police Shut Down Lyrics Web Site
The Swiss web site known as the International Lyric Server (www.lyrics.ch)
has been shut down by point of law for breach of copyright. This
site makes available lyrics to over 100 000 songs and show themes from
all over the world. Not only is the site being called to be shut
down (if it isn't already) but there is a law suit over the whole matter.
Some people think this is a shame as the owners and managers of the ILS
web site claim the site was intended as some what more a conversational
site rather than anything designed to cause harm to any musician or the
music industry. So all you web masters take note of this no matter
how good intentioned your site is always abide by copyright laws and if
you don't have permission don't use it. Personally I think there
is alot more to this issue than meets the eye and this may merely be the
end of a very long trail.
Intel Takes Sides With Red Hat
Yes that is right Intel is joining sides with Red Hat. Now before
you jump up and down screaming bye bye to freedom Intel is actually doing
some very good work and promoting Linux in a relatively free manner.
There are rumuors that other companies such as IBM may soon join teams
with one or another Linux suppliers to help promote the product and also
to build a good base behind Linux. Some people say they are doing
this only so they may charge for Linux products later down the track.
However I feel it may work the other way around the general community will
never let Linux become a commercial product nor would they tolerate anyone
who tries to take it over. Linux is built up and designed by everyone
who uses it and all the work behind it goes on with little or no return
other than more Linux resources. The free spirit behind Linux is
what makes Linux so popular as the user knows they are also a player in
the evolution of the product. I see a very bright future here especially
now that some very prominant names in the industry are finally agreeing
with what Linux users have known for ages Linux equals freedom of both
developement and use.
