Aerosmith Issues Cease-and-Desist Against Donald TrumpDigital Music News - 0 views

    " ... Unfortunately for Aerosmith, Trump can probably ignore the legal threat, or even worse, make the band look stupid with it. Just recently, Survivor protested the use of 'Eye of the Tiger' at an anti-gay marriage rally, with little result. The reason is that as long as the even coordinators have secured proper public performance licenses from PROs ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, and GMR, they're in the clear."

Music Piracy Not That Bad, Industry Says | TorrentFreak (2009) - 0 views

  •  
    "The Internet has been a blessing for the music industry. Although the RIAA and IFPI frequently complain about piracy, their own research shows that only 10% of all illegal downloads are considered to be a loss in sales. Meanwhile, piracy has shown them how to monetize music online, and turn it into profit. Every year, RIAA's global partner IFPI publishes a digital music report, which can be best described as a one sided view of the state of digital music consumption. For several years in a row the report has shown that the sales figures of digital music have gone up, but still, the industry continues to blame piracy for a loss in overall revenue. One of the key statistics that is hyped every year, is the piracy ratio of downloaded music. Just as last year, IFPI estimates that 95% of all downloads are illegal, without giving a proper source for this figure. Interestingly, those who take a closer look at the full report (pdf), will see that only 10% of the claimed illegal downloads are seen as a loss in sales."
