Submission + - PRS Wants ISPs To Pay For Pirating Customers (ft.com)

Idbar writes: A group representing British songwriters and composers will on Wednesday call for the introduction of a levy on broadband providers based on the amount of pirated music they allow to pass through their networks.

Will Page, chief economist at PRS for Music, will argue at a Westminster conference that a piracy fee would better align the financial interests of internet service providers (ISPs) with rights holders at a time when the two industries are at odds over who should bear the costs of online song swapping.


Submission + - Will Lightning Strike?

Idbar writes: I ran into a document today unveiling a new car company in the UK. They are presenting an electric car capable of producing 700bhp. The lightning car company in their website, compare their achievement with the Prius and a Jaguar (Not to the Tesla, though). The main core of the design appears to be what they call NanoSafe(r) batteries and motors on each wheel. Can 700bhp on batteries be a real claim? If you believe so, you can reserve yours already.

Your good nature will bring you unbounded happiness.
