Universal Music Says Just 22 ‘Original Masters’ Were Destroyed In the 2008 Fire — Affecting Just 5 Artists – Digital Music News
The claims coincide with Universal Music Group’s efforts to toss a class action lawsuit carrying damages of $100 million. Perhaps the 2008 Universal Studios fire was just a bunch of billowing smoke?

Disney Wins ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’ Copyright Suit As Court Declares You Cannot Copyright Pirate Life – TechDirt
It's no secret that Disney is almost solely responsible for the wild expansion of copyright law that has occurred over the course of decades. In addition to the near constant lobbying for longer copyright term lengths and a heavy-handed approach to enforcement, Disney has also found itself attempting to assert copyright in areas of broad ideas rather than literal copying. Perhaps to some, then, it was a shot of schadenfreude to watch Disney face its own lawsuit brought by screenwriters over its Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. Way back in 2000, two writers and a producer pitched a script about pirate Davy Jones to Disney, which the company ultimate rejected. In 2004, Disney released the first of its own Pirates movies starring Johnny Depp.
But no amount of just desserts ought to change the legal principles in copyright law, so it's still a good thing to see that the court has struck down the copyright suit on the grounds that the scripts aren't actually similar, aside from some ...

Copyright Enforcement Service Claims $600 Billion-Worth Of Images Are ‘Stolen’ Every Day – TechDirt
A new "report" has been released by Copytrack, supposedly detailing the insane amount of "stealing" that goes on every day. "Report" is in quotes for reason. First, the "report" [PDF] opens up with a literally unbelievable statistic conjecture.
[I]t is estimated that more than 2.5 billion images are stolen daily. These license violations have the potential to result in up to €532.5 billion in damages daily.
Not even in the most fevered dream of the most overwrought copyright maximalist could this number be considered plausible. As attorney/law professor Jeff Pearlman points out, this hilarious extrapolation from facts not in evidence conjectures that copyright infringement of images alone results in a number that swallows the entirety of the world's economy.
Let's do some math! GWP (combined global GDPs) is ~$87 trillion. That's ~$240 billion/day. Copytrack says $600 billion/day in "stolen" images.
So: they say the value of "stolen" images is more than twice what the en ...

Hommage de Franck Riester, ministre de la Culture, à Agnès Varda – Culture et Communication
Sa fantaisie, son humour, sa poésie, sa tendresse, son goût de l’improvisation laissent le cinéma français orphelin.
Avec un talent insolent, Agnès Varda s’exprimait avec autant de bonheur dans le long ou le court métrage, dans le documentaire ou la fiction, mais aussi, on le sait moins, dans l'art contemporain, avec d'étonnantes installations poétiques, ou dans la photographie, à travers sa collaboration avec l'artiste JR.
La cinéaste de « Cléo de 5 à 7 », du « Bonheur », de « Sans toit ni loi », des « Glaneuses », savait filmer, avec autant de force et d'empathie, le bonheur et le malheur, faire partager sa joie de vivre comme elle savait partager la souffrance de ses prochains...
