Choruss: Good or Bad?

Filed under: Uncategorized — ctrambler @ 8:43 am

Choruss is a new  initiative, like those pesky one I do not like governing the use of photocopiers, that aims to compensate music writers etc from file sharing. It is generating some debate in the internet right now. EFF thinks it is a good idea. TechDirt do not like it. It makes it interesting.

I haven’t gone through the event recording yet. TechDirt’s point is valid, but perhaps represents the worst-case scenario. There must be steps to ensure that those do not happens, and I think EFF is competent enough to see these through. As for Universities subscribing to the service without any benefit to their students, it is definitely possible. After all, the Universities’ interest are not exactly the same as that of their students. It is like the situation where you should not rely on company lawyers but hire your own, because your interest and that of your company is not always the same.
