Re: “Zoë Keating Fights YouTube to Control Her Music and Reputation

So discouraging that this new, creative, hipster version of corporate domination and greed looks just like every other dickish and dictatorial corporate manifestation of power-hungry facelessness. Behind that colorful and friendly facade are squads of young MBA hitmen acting just like their grandfathers' generation. Robber barons in fedoras and Hawaiian shirts are still robber barons, just more insidious.

Re: “Zoë Keating Fights YouTube to Control Her Music and Reputation

Wow...this article is an excellent write up that beautifully weaves together a David-v-Goliath tale that is chock full of stuff like business details, talented luminaries, possible corporate heavy handedness, introgue, and a desire to share art via an emerging platform and how that might possibly be quashed. Really fun read!

Re: “Apple Virus U2.0

"this collaboration stings most because it repurposes something Radiohead proved to be a liberating asset of the internet — free distribution — as a service of corporate marketing"

Gosh, what a surprise. Corporations appropriating the culture for their own benefit. What's next, profit-taking?!

It's how the system works. We create, they profit.

Re: “Apple Virus U2.0

I would still be pissed even if a band that i didn't absolutely despise suddenly appeared in my library. bach would be the exception, maybe. or p.j. harvey! ...but that would be even creepier because they'd know what i love deep down. the lesson here? it's hard to forget when you've found a maggot in your Apple.

Re: “Apple Virus U2.0

I don't think Radiohead has repeated that business model so it probably didn't work out for them well. I think whatever is on the album (good or bad)--and what made the Apple deal happen--all comes from insecurity/anxiety. Band, label, Apple--all of it.

Here's my full album review http://t.co/5owI4Di2Pk and breakdown of the deal http://t.co/JtqsD3N45W if interested in full rationale. I'm happy to read any perspective others may have, whether you agree or disagree.

Re: “The Icky Boyfriends: "We Still Suck"

"I actually don't want to make circ. illegal, I just want to end it."
Doctors could simply refuse to do it, as a matter of medical ethics, and more and more do. In most of the developed world it is not offered and not asked for, because it's not seen as a matter for "parental choice". Several senior lawyers have argued that it is already technically illegal, like the non-consented, non-therapeutic removal of every other normal, healthy, functional, non-renewing body part. The law just lacks enforcement.
