An algorithm produced every possible melody. Now its creators want to destroy songwriter copyrights.

A computer coder calculated all of the possible 8-measure, 12-beat melodies possible from Western music's 12 notes.The coder and a lawyer decided to claim ownership of every song melody ever.The two of them submitted all of these songs into the public domain so no one could ever be found in court to be plagiarizing a song. If we learned anything at all from Jurassic Park, it's that just because you can do something doesn't mean you should do it. Even so, coder Noah Rubin and lawyer Damien Riehl...

Copyrights and patents are two well known forms...

Copyrights and patents are two well known forms of intellectual property protection. But why do we have them?

Content companies (seeking stronger protections and arguably additional profit) and digital rights groups (vouching for access) haven’t been able to find common ground on copyright law for the past decade. Current law protects older songs—in some instances—for up to 140 years. Century-long protections for these songs, in the minds of many, is too long. And, currently a quilted-system of laws covers song copyright from state-to-state. …

So to finish the series I am sharing what I have noticed is the 5 biggest mistakes computer users make. Find out what IT people do wrong, and what management does wrong. Not asking for help appropriately. This not only includes not asking late, but asking too soon, and not asking in a way that can help themselves. When people ask too soon for IT help they often find that they know the answer, or when the IT person gets back to them it has become a non-issue. This wastes time for everyone. When...
