Netflix has released the first trailer for its fictional Spotify series titled “The Playlist”.

The series seems to be inspired by The social network with a fictional account by Spotify founder Daniel Ek. The story follows Ek’s journey to transform music piracy into music streaming, helping to reshape the entire music industry.

“The Playlist” is a six-episode miniseries that will debut October 13 on Netflix. Netflix director Per-Olav Sørensen helmed the project, while Christian Spurrier wrote the series. What the trailer doesn’t really explore are the consequences of Spotify and their impact on artists’ bottom lines.

There is very little talk of unpaid royalties or artists who are unhappy with their piece of the pie. He also takes some liberties with the reality of music streaming at the time. He describes Spotify as the service that revolutionized music streaming, but RealPlayer’s Rhapsody existed long before Spotify.

The two-minute trailer is set to the tune of Swedish DJ Avicii’s “Levels” and shows off Spotify’s early startup culture. According to Netflix, “it’s a story about how hard beliefs, relentless willpower, access, and big dreams can help little players challenge the status quo by changing the way we can all listen to music. music”.

‘The Playlist’ is inspired by the book Spotify Unspeakables by Swedish business journalists Sven Carlsson and Johnas Leijohnhufvud. Edvin Endre stars as Daniel Ek, who invented Spotify in 2002 to compete with peer-to-peer music sharing platforms like KaZaa and torrent sites like The Pirate Bay.

Endre is joined by Ulf Stenberg as Per Sundin, Gizem Erdogan as Petra Hansson, Joel Lützow as Andreas Ehn, Christian Hillborg as Martin Lorentzon and Swedish artist Janice Kamya Kavander as Bobbie T.

“‘The Playlist’ is above all a story of music”, explains director Per-Olav Sørensen. “Representing in fiction how Spotify changed the music industry is impossible without the artists’ perspective, and our character Bobbie T represents their voices in this story.”

Ministers must advance legislative efforts to crack down on online hate, argued Angela Rayner and Sadiq Khan, as they said abuse and prejudice had become “monetised”.

Speaking at a Labor conference side event in Liverpool, Khan, the Mayor of London, said the analysis revealed 230,000 racist tweets about him sent since he took office in 2016, and that almost none had been removed.

Rayner, the party’s deputy leader, said the torrent of abuse deterred people from running for office or, in some cases, even speaking out online.

The two said the government needed to move forward with the Online Harms Bill, which has been delayed from the summer and could be heavily overhauled under Liz Truss.

“They tried to self-regulate. They couldn’t do it. It’s time for us to legislate,” Rayner said. “We have to find a way for these organizations to accept responsibility for this space…It’s your blunder – fix it.”

Rayner told the public that the abuse she faced was such that she almost never read comments or tweets online, usually only doing so if her staff found one that was potentially criminal and she needed to. to read it to give the police a victim impact statement.

Much of that often came from damaged people, Rayner explained. She said: “It acts as a catalyst for people who have experienced trauma themselves and are revisiting that trauma.”

Khan said his office flagged 100 of the most offensive tweets about him on Twitter, only four of which were removed.

“In their absence, the government needs to regulate companies like Facebook and Twitter,” he said. “That’s why online damage invoices are so important. Hatred has been monetized.

“What Twitter and others need to do is invest in algorithms or personnel to remove these items as soon as they are in place, and especially once they are flagged. If I violated copyright with a song someone else had written, it would be taken down immediately.

Both politicians condemned some political opponents and parts of the mainstream media for spreading dangerous myths in the first place.

Khan noted that media coverage of the 2016 mayoral election linked him, as a Muslim, to Islamist terrorism, and that his conservative opponent, Zac Goldsmith, sought to scare Londoners of Hindu descent.

“What he’s done is he’s internalized and normalized the biases that exist against people of my faith,” Khan said, adding that some news organizations have followed suit.

“What we’ve realized now is that when you use my name, it’s a good traffic clickbait,” he said. “It’s a run-off tone set by the mainstream media. The reality is that there are reporters who say the wrong things about me and Angela, because they know it attracts readers. It’s good for business.

House > Prosecutions > repeat offender >

Internet service provider Earthlink has reached an interim settlement with several filmmakers, to end an ongoing piracy liability lawsuit. Rights holders accused the company of turning a blind eye to piracy and demanded far-reaching action, including disclosing the identities of suspected hackers. The terms of the settlement remain private but may include a damages component.

A litigious group of filmmakers, led by Voltage Pictures, is working hard to hold internet providers accountable for hacking customers.

Film companies own the rights to well-known films such as “Ava”, “I Feel Pretty”, and “The Cobbler”, which are shared publicly via BitTorrent. The lawsuits are aimed at deterring this activity.

This month, the filmmakers sued AT&T, Comcast and Verizon, accusing the companies of turning a blind eye to the piracy. These cases were dismissed “without prejudice” last week for unknown reasons, but may be refiled at a later date.

Earth Link

While these major cases were in the spotlight, a lawsuit against the smaller ISP Earthlink went largely unnoticed. That case was filed in June by many of the same filmmakers who accuse the provider of failing to act against repeat offenders.

The legal documents include many of the same allegations. Rightsholders sent numerous piracy notices to the ISP, which allegedly failed to take action against repeat infringers to preserve its revenue.

“Defendant knew that if it terminated or prevented repeat subscribers from using its service to infringe, or made it less attractive for such use, defendant would enroll fewer new subscribers, lose existing subscribers, and ultimately lose business. income,” the complaint reads.

Warning letter 2020

The lawsuit didn’t totally come out of nowhere for Earthlink. In 2020, the filmmakers have already contacted the internet service provider, complaining of widespread copyright infringement. They instead offered an agreement to settle the matter out of court.

The letter in question identified the IP addresses of more than 1,100 alleged offenders, including many repeat offenders. In some cases, more than 100 notifications were sent for a single IP address, with no meaningful response from Earthlink.

letter

The filmmakers have concluded that the ISP is liable for these breaches which could result in millions of dollars in damages. However, they offered Earthlink the chance to avoid a lawsuit, provided it agrees to the following terms.

– Immediately terminate accounts that have received more than six hack warnings
– Take appropriate action against repeat offenders in the future.
– Pay a portion of the alleged hacking damages
– Forward subscriber details of suspected hackers

Requires going to court

Earthlink never responded to this letter which prompted the filmmakers to take the matter to court. In a lawsuit filed in federal court in Georgia in June, many of the previous claims reappeared.

The complaint seeks an order that imposes a three-step termination policy for alleged pirates, for example. Additionally, Earthlink should block access to known pirate sites and disclose the identity of pirate subscribers.

Coupled with millions of dollars in potential damages, the stakes are obviously high. This was also evident for Earthlink, which joined the negotiating table this time around.

Settlement reached

Last week, both sides informed the court that a “provisional” settlement had been reached.

No details of the settlement negotiations have been released and it is unclear if there are any damages involved. It is clear, however, that the lawsuit will be thrown out if all the details are finalized.

regulation

In conclusion, it should be noted that the developments in the Earthlink case are different from the AT&T, Comcast and Verizon lawsuit. The latter were dismissed without prejudice, without any mention of arrangement.

It’s unclear if the filmmakers have other ISPs in their sights, but that certainly wouldn’t be a surprise.

CNA – Typhoon Nanmadol brought fierce winds and record rainfall to western Japan yesterday as one of the biggest storms to hit the country in years killed at least two people, disrupted transportation and forced manufacturers to suspend their operations.

Prime Minister Fumio Kishida delayed his departure for New York, where he was due to deliver a speech at the United Nations General Assembly.

The 14th Japanese typhoon of the season made landfall near the city of Kagoshima on Sunday evening before hitting the western island of Kyushu and roaring over the main island of Honshu yesterday morning.

A river in Kyushu’s Miyazaki prefecture overflowed, flooding fields and roads, footage from state broadcaster NHK showed. Other videos showed a riverside house half-hanging over a torrent, the ripped off tin roof of a gas station and a toppled billboard leaning over a street from the top of a building.

“We need to stay very alert for heavy rain, gale force winds, high waves and storm surge,” a Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) official told a news conference.

NHK said a man was found dead inside his car, which was submerged on its roof in the middle of a field, while another man died after being caught in a landslide. Another person is still missing and at least 87 people have been injured, NHK said.

About 340,000 homes, most of them in Kyushu, were without power yesterday, the Commerce Ministry said, while Kyushu Railway said it halted operations on Kyushu and Japan Airlines and ANA Holdings canceled about 800 flights, reported public broadcaster NHK.

The storm made landfall again in Shimane prefecture, western Honshu, after tracking the coastline earlier yesterday, and was heading east at around 35 kilometers per hour, the JMA said.

The storm will veer into the Sea of ​​Japan for the second time and follow the coast north of Honshu until today before crossing overland and moving northeast into the Pacific, the agency predicted. .

ISP hopes to defeat record labels’ piracy liability claims in trial *TorrentFreak https://www.tittorrents.com/isp-hopes-to-defeat-record-labels-piracy-liability-claims-in-trial-torrentfreak/ Sat, 17 Sep 2022 18:01:47 +0000 https://www.tittorrents.com/isp-hopes-to-defeat-record-labels-piracy-liability-claims-in-trial-torrentfreak/ Three years ago, several of the biggest music companies in the world, including Warner Bros. and Sony Music, sued internet provider Grande Communications.

Three years ago, several of the biggest music companies in the world, including Warner Bros. and Sony Music, sued internet provider Grande Communications.

Record labels have accused the ISP, which is owned by Astound, of not doing enough to stop the hacking of subscribers. Specifically, they alleged that the company failed to terminate repeat offenders.

Since the lawsuit was filed, both sides have been back and forth in court with various arguments and accusations. The legal battle will soon go to trial and both sides filed preparatory documents in court this week.

As part of the jury selection process, the record labels and ISP submitted their statement, which provides a clear and concise overview of the issues at stake.

Grande denies any responsibility

Grande Communications believes that it should not be held liable for alleged copyright infringements committed by its subscribers. The company presents itself as a neutral service provider that has never encouraged any kind of hacking.

“Grande disputes the plaintiffs’ assertion that Grande is liable for acts of copyright infringement allegedly committed by its subscribers. Grande claims that it is simply an internet service provider and has never instigated or encouraged anyone to infringe the plaintiffs’ copyrights. »

big claim

The ISP calls the record company’s piracy monitoring service Rightscorp, which Grande says cannot accurately or reliably identify copyright violations. Additionally, the hack tracking company allegedly destroyed or failed to preserve key evidence.

As a result, copyright infringement notices sent by Rightcorp via email were insufficient to warrant drastic action, Grande suggests. Therefore, the company firmly believes that it should not be held liable.

“The emails from Rightscorp to Grande were flawed and unreliable, due to flaws in Rightscorp’s system and because the emails lacked supporting or verifiable evidence,” the ISP notes.

Record labels are looking for millions

The record companies’ statement supports the polar opposite. According to the music companies, it is clear that the ISP is responsible, alleging that Grande willfully profited from the hacking of subscribers.

With 1,422 sound recordings at stake, the amount of potential damages the jury can award exceeds $213 million.

At trial, the labels plan to show the jury that Grande had known about this piracy problem since the early 2000s. Initially, he responded by shutting down subscribers’ accounts, but over time the ISP changed his cap.

“[B]Beginning in 2010, in an effort to increase profits, Grande eliminated its termination policy and instead opted to allow its subscribers to freely infringe copyright without any consequences,” the labels write.

After that decision, the music companies sent out over a million piracy notices and they allege Grande didn’t terminate even a single account in response.

“Yet, despite knowing or deliberately avoiding knowledge of repeat violations specifically identified by its customers, Grande continued to provide these customers with the internet service essential to the prosecution of their unlawful conduct,” write -they.

The absence of termination would have allowed the Internet service provider to increase its profits while causing significant damage to the labels and their artists.

Do you read TorrentFreak?

In addition to statements, both sides will also ask potential jury members to answer a series of questions. These can help detect biases and other issues that might make a person unfit to sit on the bench.

Label questions are similar to those we’ve reported in the past. They want to know how familiar the candidates are with file sharing and whether they have ever downloaded anything from The Pirate Bay or other torrent sites.

There are also questions about using stream extraction services and EFF support. Additionally, TorrentFreak also gets a mention, along with Ars Technica, another news site.

“Have you ever read or visited Ars Technica or TorrentFreak? If so, for what type of material? the labels consider soliciting potential jury members.

tf

These questions could theoretically point potential jurors in a certain direction. Even those who have never heard of TorrentFreak may be intrigued by the question and start reading it in the future. But that’s probably not the point here.

Record companies aren’t the only ones asking questions of course. Grande Communications has also prepared a list, hoping to point out bias or other disqualifying factors.

The ISP asks, for example, if the applicants are musicians or if they have ever worked in a record company, and if they think it is the responsibility of an ISP to monitor and control online piracy .

To advance

Once the members of the jury have been selected, the case will go to trial in a few weeks. Both parties expect to need a total of 10 days to present evidence and argue their case.

This is not the first case between record labels and an ISP to be tried this year. Charter Communications and Bright House were in the same position, but the two companies signed a settlement agreement instead.

Meanwhile, a group of independent filmmakers recently filed new piracy liability lawsuits against Verizon, AT&T, and Comcast so the US federal courts aren’t done with those repeat infringer lawsuits yet.

Copies of the record companies statement and voir dire questions are available here (1.2) and Grande’s versions can be found here (1.2)

North Dakota’s oil production unexpectedly fell 2.5% in July due to a shortage of new wells coming on stream.

“It was a surprise to me and my staff,” Lynn Helms, director of mineral resources for North Dakota, told reporters Thursday. “We expected a slight increase.”

North Dakota, the nation’s third-largest oil-producing state, pumped 1.07 million barrels a day in July, up from 1.1 million the previous month. However, natural gas production increased by 1.3% to reach 3.1 million Mcf. (One MCF is 1,000 cubic feet of natural gas.)

Helms said the drop in oil resulted from “very low well completions” in June. The number of completed wells jumped in late July, but not enough to bring production back to expected levels, he said.

North Dakota’s rig count — a harbinger of future production — currently stands at 45, down one from August and even July.

“The number of rigs basically stopped in the mid-1940s,” Helms said. “We just can’t attract the skilled labor we need to drill more wells and deploy more frac crews.”

Fracking involves blasting a torrent of water, sand and chemicals underground to release oil into shale rock.

North Dakota’s gas production has increased – even as oil has fallen – as the gas-to-oil ratio from wells continues to rise. As oil fields age, this ratio increases.

The state set a volume record in July for natural gas that was “captured” and sold. Gas that is not captured is flared, a process that wastes resources and emits carbon dioxide.

North Dakota oilfield operators captured 94% of all gas produced in July; only 6% was flared. The state has had a historically high gas capture rate of 93% to 94% over the past 10 months.

P2P streaming tool “Ace Stream” exposes unwarranted allegations of site blocking and piracy *TorrentFreak https://www.tittorrents.com/p2p-streaming-tool-ace-stream-exposes-unwarranted-allegations-of-site-blocking-and-piracy-torrentfreak/ Mon, 12 Sep 2022 06:36:25 +0000 https://www.tittorrents.com/p2p-streaming-tool-ace-stream-exposes-unwarranted-allegations-of-site-blocking-and-piracy-torrentfreak/ With millions of regular users, Ace Stream is one of the most popular streaming apps.

With millions of regular users, Ace Stream is one of the most popular streaming apps.

The software was first released in 2010 as “Torrent Stream”. Three years later, he renamed his service to Ace Stream, after which it took off.

The original name reveals that the streaming app relies on a torrent engine built into the hugely popular VLC media player. This combination results in a peer-to-peer streaming mechanism that does not rely on central servers.

This concept allows audiences to use an open tool to deliver content to the masses, without relying on third-party streaming platforms. It turned out to be a great idea that received wide support.

In 2013, Ace Stream received financial support from Google to showcase the technology at Techweek Chicago. Around the same time, he also received a grant from the European Union. This has allowed the company, which is incorporated in Ukraine as Innovative Digital Technologies LLC, to improve and optimize its streaming tool.

Third Party Hacking

Today, millions of people regularly use Ace Stream. This includes a subset of pirates, who use the software to rebroadcast copyrighted live streams, including many sports matches.

Rights holders are obviously not satisfied with this activity. However, Ace Stream is content-neutral software, similar to regular web browsers, media players or torrent clients.

Where normal torrent clients use .torrent files and magnet links, Ace Stream relies on Ace Stream content identifiers and transports files to search and play streams instead. These are similar to .torrent files and information hashes that normal torrent clients use.

ace flow

IDs are not hosted, hosted or maintained by Ace Stream. Instead, the software users generate the links which can then be shared anywhere on the web. This is similar to how .torrent files are distributed.

“We do not publish or host any content”

Speaking to TorrentFreak, Ace Stream’s Roman Morozyuk points out that the company and its software are simply a content-neutral tool.

“Ace Stream is not a content provider or hosting service. We do not publish or store any video or audio content. This automatically excludes the possibility that we violate the copyrights of the video or audio content,” says Morozyuk.

The decentralized nature of the streaming platform also means that setting up filters or blacklisting, as rights holders often insist, is not a viable option. Ace Stream sees this decentralized nature as its biggest selling point, but rights holders disagree.

ISPs have been ordered to block Ace Stream

A few weeks ago, these tensions escalated when Ace Stream was added to Spain’s piracy blacklist following a complaint from LaLiga. This means that local Internet Service Providers must block access to the streaming player.

This is a controversial move, as BandaAncha noted, because the software does not link to or host any copyrighted content. Worse still, Ace Stream says he wasn’t notified of the blocking request, so he couldn’t defend himself.

“We have not received any notification from LaLiga or any of its agents regarding such a blocking of the site, and we learned about it by chance, from our users,” Morozyuk says.

LaLiga should have had no problem contacting Ace Stream and the two companies have discussed copyright infringement issues in the past. This was triggered by a complaint filed by the Spanish football league with Google.

Removal from the Play Store

The organization previously asked Google to remove the Ace Stream software from the Play Store, which it did. However, Ace Stream appealed arguing that it had been falsely accused of copyright infringement.

It turns out that LaLiga backed up their claims with a screenshot showing how the software was used to stream copyrighted football matches. However, he did not specify that LaLiga uploaded these streams themselves using links from illegal sources.

ace android

For Ace Stream, this accusation is tantamount to requesting the removal of a web browser because it may be loading an illegal streaming site. Google eventually accepted the streaming app, which was allowed back into the Play Store, but the problems didn’t end there.

From EU funding to the EU blacklist?

Earlier this year, Ace Stream was shocked to learn that the Audiovisual Anti Piracy Alliance (AAPA) had nominated the software for a spot on the bi-annual EU Anti-Counterfeiting and Piracy Watchlist.

The AAPA submission put the streaming tool in a bucket with other “core content offenders,” including flagrant violating IPTV services. Needless to say, Ace Stream wasn’t happy and so tried to set the record straight.

“We have sent our justified complaints and demands to immediately stop illegal actions against our company that discredit our legal project and legal products, and also violate consumer rights,” Morozyuk notes.

Unfortunately, Ace Stream has yet to hear from AAPA or the EU. If things get out of control, the company can potentially take legal action, but for now they prefer to resolve the issue through dialogue.

“We haven’t filed any lawsuits yet, as we hope to resolve this whole situation through mutual and amicable understanding,” Morozyuk tells us.

Talk to Rights Holders

So far, direct discussions with copyright owners have been difficult. Ace Stream has had repeated contact with LaLiga, for example, and has offered its services to the sports league to generate revenue.

LaLiga seem unwilling to use Ace Stream, perhaps because it can only fetch a fraction of the money offered by centralized streaming platforms.

This means that tensions between Ace Stream and rights holders are likely to continue. According to the streaming app, resisting decentralized technology is futile, so rights holders should look for ways to take advantage of it.

“We have effective solutions that will allow copyright owners to embrace the new reality, where decentralization is gradually becoming the basis of a normal entire Internet, and not waste their efforts in a futile fight against networks Fully decentralized P2P,” says Morozyuk.

More details on this solution will follow in the near future. Meanwhile, Ace Stream hopes that the blocking issue and other piracy allegations will be resolved.

Brahmastra leaked online hours after release

Brahmastra Part 1: Shiva starring Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt leaked online in HD quality within hours of being released on torrent sites

Brahmastra Part 1: Shiva has been one of the most anticipated films. The Ayan Mukerji-directed film had been in the works for almost 8 years, and today the Ranbir Kapoor-Alia Bhatt star is finally out. But, as soon as it was released in theaters, the entire movie was leaked on various torrent sites. Brahmastra Full Movie HD Version is now available for free on various websites like TamilRockers and Filmyzilla and it would most definitely affect the movie business.

Several films released earlier in theaters including Aamir Khan star Laal Singh Chaddha, Akshay Kumar’s Rakshabandhan, Liger, Jugjugg Jeeyo, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 among others have also suffered the consequences of piracy. However, what should be noted is that Brahmastra was released despite Star India’s appeal to the court to block all piracy sites. The court had even blocked 18 of these rogue websites.

Brahmastra came out today to great fanfare. Fans were waiting to see how the film, which promised to be a visual extravaganza, would turn out. This is also the first time that Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt have shared the screen together. Ayan Mukerji presents his concept of “Astraverse”, or the world of various “astras” which give power to those who wear it.

News18’s review of Brahmastra reads, “Brahmastra isn’t a perfect movie, but few movies are. It’s too long at 2 hours and 46 minutes, and it’s both plain and simplistic in places. But it’s a solid, satisfying watch, a well-crafted look, and a filmmaker’s vision—something to be applauded and appreciated. The film is a visual feast that must be seen on the big screen. As for the second part, go for it!
