$Pirate = ( 'free publicity')

Hmm, looks like Sweden is cracking down on piracy.


Sweden's new policy - the Local IPRED law - allows copyright holders to force internet service providers (ISP) to reveal details of users sharing files.

It's never a good day when you adhere to the copyright police.

I buy the works I appreciate and don't download music etc. but it does offend me when folks criminalize users.

Ye, in a few years when they find out marketing costs way more money now that free publicity via users is not available, come back then.

In other news, apparently Google is trying to buy Twitter. Or something along those lines.

Maybe one search engine is going to hook up and feed off the other, I don't know.

I'm still thinking about poor Sweden.

Een horn?

I read somewhere in the newsletter (that I get from the Conlan Press site) that there might be talk about a Last Unicorn live action movie.

I would be wary but then P.S. Beagle seems quite particular about the story and adaptation so I think it will turn out alright.

Unless they sign on Zac Efron. *gag* That would be a deal breaker.

By the way, if you are a fan, do support his work by buying from Conlan Press. Read more about it at their website.
