News and Gossip
Police Shut Down Lyrics Web Site
The Swiss web site known as the International Lyric Server ( 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.
