Originally this episode was to feature an ASCAP representative, but the timing didn’t quite work out for this show. so the discussion turned to an overview what issues were facing on the Internet with music and content in general.
Topics discussed are:
- ASCAP’s take with the Songwriter’s Bill of Rights using rickrolling as an example.
- Music leads the Internet charge in content and how it delivery is being monetized and even moving toward regulation
- Why does the same free content on the web suddenly become worth charging for and being paid for in a different format?
- Content on the web isn’t really free? Someone’s making money on content.
- Protection versus Statements of rights by a subset of people
- The different factions involved in the music on the Internet trying to stake their claims
- Limited past delivery systems versus the Internet’s near limitless capabilities
- Protections versus Control
- Net Neutrality
- Selling your Privacy for convenience
- The double-edged sword of easy access
- Comments from the Podcast Gallery
- What’s Freedom without responsibility?
