    my troubled mind | now | me
    My old computer died; my new computer came without any extras (I thought I would install them from my backups). Problem is, my Office 2013 came with my old computer and I bought the product key to activate it. So now I have the product key and no Office to activate. Where can I go to download it? Funny replies like "put it in the trash and go to the Apple store for a real computer" will get an appreciative chuckle, but not much more :)
  • Supreme Court: No royalties with Internet music downloads

    MSN ^ | 10/03/11 | Reuters
    The Supreme Court let stand on Monday a ruling that a traditional Internet download of sound recording does not constitute a public performance of the recorded musical work under federal copyright law. The justices refused to review a ruling by an appeals court in New York that the download itself of a musical work does not fall within the law's definition of a public performance of that work. The not-for-profit American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) appealed to the Supreme Court. It said the ruling has profound implications for the nation's music industry, costing its members tens of...

  • 3 Strikes: Music Industry, ISPs May Cut Internet Access for File-Sharers (Ooooh, scary--sarc/)

    fox news ^ | March 23, 2009 | Liza Porteus Viana
    Under pressure from the big record labels, several countries around the world are cracking down hard on illegal file-sharers with a "three strikes, you're out" policy — and the United States may be next. The basics are simple: Get caught three times sharing files illegally, and your Internet access gets cut off. But in a day and age when Internet access is almost as essential as a cell phone or electricity, should the music industry or Internet service providers [ISPs] have the power to determine who can and can't get online, particularly without criminal charges being filed? And what if...

    Reuters India ^ | 10/14/2008
    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President George W. Bush signed into law on Monday a controversial bill that would stiffen penalties for movie and music piracy at the federal level. The law creates an intellectual property czar who will report directly to the president on how to better protect copyrights both domestically and internationally. The Justice Department had argued that the creation of this position would undermine its authority. The law also toughens criminal laws against piracy and counterfeiting. The Recording Industry Association of America and Motion Picture Association of America backed the bill, as did the U.S. Chamber of Commerce....

    British Pop Stars Form Group to Demand More Power Saturday, October 4, 2008 1:30 PM LONDON -- Some of Britain's biggest music stars announced Saturday they are banding together to demand greater control over their music in the digital age. Radiohead, Robbie Williams and Kaiser Chiefs are among more than 60 founding members of the Featured Artists' Coalition. The group says it wants musicians rather than record labels to retain control over the rights to their music. It says new technology is rapidly changing the music industry, and artists are often left out when their songs are distributed over the...

    I keep getting asked how I download and convert youtube and other videos, so I offer you this tutorial. You will need Ubuntu 6.06 or higher (this was done on 7.10), as I haven't attempted this with anything lower. I refer to Mozilla, but any Mozilla derivative, such as FireFox, will work. All Terminal COMMANDS will be in red. You will need to have ffmpeg installed. Open up your Synaptic Package Manager... Type in your password to access the Manager... Type in ffmpeg... Click on the box, and mark it for installation... Click Accept, to confirm installation... Good. Now close...

    After a decade fighting to stop illegal file-sharing, the music industry will give fans today what they have always wanted: an unlimited supply of free and legal songs. With CD sales in free fall and legal downloads yet to fill the gap, the music industry has reluctantly embraced the file-sharing technology that threatened to destroy it. Qtrax, a digital service announced today, promises a catalogue of more than 25 million songs that users can download to keep, free and with no limit on the number of tracks. The service has been endorsed by the very same record companies - including...

    Canadians may soon pay a small tax on every legal music store download, says a new measure sanctioned by the Copyright Board of Canada. Requested by the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada (SOCAN), the tax would apply at least 2.1 cents to every individual song download and 1.5 cents per track for complete albums. Subscription download and streaming services would themselves be charged between 5.7 and 6.8 percent of a user's monthly fees. Minimum fees would also apply for every larger download or subscription. The surcharge would help compensate artists for piracy, according to SOCAN's reasoning....

    DULUTH, Minn. (AP) - The case against Jammie Thomas is expected to go to jurors today. Six major record companies accuse Thomas, 30, of sharing 1,702 songs online in violation of the companies' copyrights. The record companies claim they found the songs on a Kazaa file-sharing account they later linked to her. After two days of testimony from 11 witnesses, the defense rested without calling anyone to the stand, and closing arguments in the civil trial are scheduled for this morning. U.S. District Judge Michael Davis said he would decide then whether the record companies would have to prove the...

    With the Fourth of July just around the corner, we thought we'd round up some patriotic, Independence Day-themed podcasts. The Fourth is filled with picnics, fireworks and beach parties, but if we're not careful, we'll forget the real meaning of the holiday -- so before you head off to the water park or airport, you might want to load up your iPod with a few of these recordings. And as always, all of the MP3s listed here are free -- and legal!

    Digital singles thriving where 45s once ruled Music industry pays price for expecting fans to buy $15 CDs......... NEW YORK — It sounds like a horror movie: a beloved friend is callously exterminated, then reincarnated in a different form to wreak havoc on the killer. That's the nightmare currently facing the music industry. Almost a decade after virtually eliminating 45s and cassette singles, thereby forcing fans to spend more money on whole albums, the digital single is largely responsible for the industry's woes.

    Excerpt - A recent out-of-court settlement between Apple Computer and a Vermont-based inventor has landed Apple the rights to a prestigious software design patent that may allow the company to seek royalties on a broad spectrum of digital downloads. Michael Starkweather, a lawyer and author of the 10-year old patent, issued a statement on Thursday calling it a "billion dollar patent" that will have affects on the future of the "cell phone, iPod and PDA" industries. "I believe that, with this patent in hand, Apple will eventually be after every phone company, film maker, computer maker and video producer to...
