Music Industry Shaking Down Coffee Shops

Somebody please tell me this is a joke.

from floridatoday.com:

Music licensing companies come calling for royalties

A restaurant owner who doesn't even offer live music was approached for payment for having the TV on while the Monday Night Football theme played. And if the owners pay up to one licensing company, all of the others start harassing them, calling four times a day, demanding payment too. It sounds like they don't even check whether any copyright violations occurred, they're just sending bills to any business that may or may not have live music.

This is getting a little out of hand now. Downloading mp3's without paying anyone - fine. But playing TV in your bar?? Are you kidding me?!

Who is Jonathan Hoenig?

I'm not sure, but he is a Fox News contributor, which by itself usually means I'm not going to like him. And now I have reason not to like him.

Fox Guest Smokes On-Air, Says Taxing Tobacco To Fund Children’s Health Is Like Racial Discrimination

Fox News contributor Jonathan Hoenig called the proposal “discrimination,” analogizing it to “all blacks” or “all Christians” having “to pay a surcharge for kids health care.” He also argued that smoking “harms nobody but the smoker,” proceeding to light up a cigarette on-air to prove his point.

Comic-Con: Futurama panel report

Futurama is back, and now we know in what form. The show will return on November 27th as a full-length high-def film sold on DVD. It will be followed by three additional films, and each film will be divided into four episodes each to be aired on Comedy Central. So, that's 4 DVD movies or 16 new episodes depending on how you look at it.
