+ - RIAA Threatens ICANN with lawsuit->

Submitted by think_nix
think_nix (1467471) writes "A letter from Victoria Sheckler, Deputy General Counsel the RIAA to ICANN threatens to sue ICANN over the future implementation of the .music gTLD if certain "measures" are not met by ICANN in compliance with the RIAA. The letter states and points out such concerns as 'Community Objections', 'Lack of Transparency' , and 'Malicious Conduct' the reasons of concern from the RIAA.

As noted above, we are concerned that a music themed gTLD will be used to enable wide scale copyright and trademark infringment

+ - Australia to Nintendo: Knock if off!->

The Great Pulgoso writes "Super Paper Mario delay: 7 months. Metroid Prime 3? 2 months! Galaxy and Smash Brothers? who knows!! A report written by New Zealander Aaron Rex Davies on the delays of Australian / NZ Nintendo's Wii software releases, shows how the South PAcific Region is getting screwed over by Nintendo. They consistently pay much more (20 extra dollars), and get the software much later. NTSC vs PAL isn't much of an issue here in Australia, as most modern televisions can take both formats. So, why the heck does Nintendo do this?"
