The first 100 Episodes of Digital Music Trends

DMT 3 – Three Strikes Laws

Ok, this week’s podcast is a bit odd – i recorded it in the middle of the night and I was trying to be quiet so many apologies if I sound like a cross between a late night call-line and a tired bear. Hope you enjoy the stories though!!

Topics covered: three Strikes around the globe, the Pirate Bay sentence could be declared a mistrial, some Comes With Music statistics, the Loi Hadopi (three strikes law) in France finds an enemy in the European Union, Hulu and Music videos, the fall of music sales around the globe.
