The Null Device
Last year, the US recording industry snuck in a law (as a rider on a satellite
TV bill), giving recording companies perpetual copyright of artists'
recordings as "works for hire". The lobbyist who did the dirty deed was later
hired by the RIAA, presumably as a reward for his loyalty. Now, the RIAA
and artists have agreed that the work-for-hire law must go
. I wonder how much of this is
due to Internet-borne revelations of the corruption of the recording industry,
as recounted by Courtney Love, Steve Albini and the like.
