VintagePC writes "Cory Deitz on About.Com's Radio subsection writes to tell us that the RIAA plans to sue car owners for illegally sharing the music from their radios with other passengers in the car. The RIAA claims that the music played by these radios is not meant to be used by anyone other than the original purchaser of the car, and as such, it is considered copyright infringement. Does this bode ill for the owners of restaurants that play relaxing music at mealtimes?"

Since Slashdot has always striven to be perceived as a legitimate news source, we have had an internal discussion, and decided to immediately end all our articles which are not fully verified for today. This site was never about just personal amusement. The point has always been to provide absolutely articulate, well edited articles to inform the IT community about new events which could effect their jobs. Because the April Fools jokes make this site look like some sort of personal blog for CmdrTaco, I am happy to announce that we declare that we will never violate the trust that you have in us ever again. For the rest of the day, you will be able to enjoy the carfully edited, duplicate-pruned, always relevant articles which you have come to know and explectr."

+ - Microsoft Outlaws 3rd Party IM Clients

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "With the latest update to the MSN Instant Messenger client, now called Windows Live Messenger, Microsoft has required all users to sign a new contract which among other things forbids the use of 3rd party instant messenger clients to connect to the MSN messenger service, such as the AJAX Meebo client, Gaim, and Trillian among others. Worth noting, they do provide a list of authorized 3rd party clients, such as Yahoo Messenger, that are allowed access to the service.

Excerpt: "In using the service, you may not use any unauthorized third party software or service to access the Microsoft instant messaging network currently known as the .NET Messenger service." "
