News:RIAA, newspapers ask Trump to limit fair use, toughen copyright | Ars Technica

RIAA, newspapers ask Trump to limit fair use, toughen copyright | Ars Technica: "President-elect Donald Trump is meeting today with some of Silicon Valley's top business leaders. Ahead of that meeting, content companies sent letters letting Trump know that they're hoping to see some changes to copyright laws in the near future—changes that technology companies, large and small, are likely to object to."

It's appalling how much copyrighted music is on YouTube gathering ad revenue for random uploaders. Especially when the audio fingerprinting tech is available to prevent it.

News:Jimmy Iovine talks past, future of Apple Music in new interview

Jimmy Iovine talks past, future of Apple Music in new interview: "Iovine sat down with Billboard to clear the air over recent reports — one from Rolling Stone in particular — that forward a narrative in which tech companies bring on record execs to foster partnerships with music industry elite. This so-called "liaison narrative" is an oversimplification of Iovine's work, which started when the former music executive co-founded Beats with Dr. Dre. "

I disagree that it's the future of music. I think it is the rebirth of radio, which was ripe for disruption. Not a days goes by when I regret ripping my CD collection. Luckily, used CDs are now so cheap it's easy to recover from those crappy bitstreams by re-ripping to Apple Lossless or some other audiophile format.

News:New data shows Apple Music contributing to rebirth of music industry, but it’s not winning over Spotify users | 9to5Mac

New data shows Apple Music contributing to rebirth of music industry, but it’s not winning over Spotify users | 9to5Mac: "Sherman notes that while a song streamed from YouTube is no different for the fan, it’s dramatically different for the artists and labels. Sherman also put Spotify’s free streaming tier in the same boat, noting that the payout differences between free music streaming and paid is “jarring and indefensible.”"

I get all the convenience of streaming from iTunes sync with my devices. I use streaming on borrowed devices. That's my jam.

News:An OS 9 odyssey: Why these Mac users won’t abandon 16-year-old software | Ars Technica

An OS 9 odyssey: Why these Mac users won’t abandon 16-year-old software | Ars TechnicaHe has constructed his home studio around a Digidesign ProControl mixing and recording console and a Power Mac G4 running ProTools 5.1.3. Connected to that Mac via its four PCI expansion slots, he has an array of mixer cards and "other 'obsolete' items." The setup would have cost tens of thousands of dollars 15 years ago, but he scrounged it together for far less off sites like eBay and Craigslist over the last few years.
ProTools circa 2000 is more than enough to record a hit album.
