And The Waltz Goes On


Many years ago, before he became a very famous Hollywood movie star, Anthony Hopkins was a musician. He wrote a waltz that he has never heard himself, because he was so afraid to make it public. Finally after so many years, he finally mustered the courage to ask a world-famous conductor to play it. Watch this video as Anthony Hopkins listens to his own music for the first time. The lesson? Never be afraid to follow your own passion, because that is how you were made, and that is how to glorify it.

      How dirty are Patent Trolls? Very dirty

      k

      Personal Audio is a patent troll that is shaking down all kinds of indie podcasters for protection money using a new, cheaper, streamlined process. EFF is fighting back with a lawsuit. So how dirty is this troll? Very dirty..
      (..) They’ve filed an expensive lawsuit outside of the patent proceeding, and subpoenaed the names and personal details of everyone who donated to the campaign against their patent, purely to raise the price of adjudicating their patent, scandalizing donor privacy for the wrong reasons, and to intimidate podcasters who gave to the litigation fund rather than paying off Personal Audio. EFF is now fighting this too. More at BoingBoing.

                            Postonline interview Tim Kuik

                            Tim Kuik is te gast in de allereerste ThePostOnline-tv Talkshow. Gepresenteerd door: Theodor Holman en Bert Brussen. Kuik lijkt te begrijpen dat zonder legaal alternatief voor sommige producten, piraterij veel begrijpelijker is. Ook lijkt hij te zien dat EIGEN werk niet alsnog belast kan worden of idiote download verboden (Godzijdank!). Helaas Helemaal niets over zijn Embed-belasting, de eeuwigdurende en brede interpretatie bij inning van rechten (ergo: het failliet achter het hele idee van ip rechten/patenten). Maar beter een eerste gesprek als een start. Dialoog is beter dan maar rechtzaken voeren in de media (huidige trend).
                            Tijd dat Kuik eens dit videootje ziet van Andy Baio’s (Waxy) “The New Prohibition” speech:
