Pandora’s (copyright) box

It’s no secret that copyright law is ridiculously complicated and in bad need of reform.  In case anyone needed reminding, paidContent covered Pandora’s CEO Joe Kennedy’s recent speech at the NARM music conference in San Francisco.  The article’s headings say it all:

  • “The complexity of international copyright limits Pandora’s business.”
  • “How huge damages in copyright law have skewed business relationships.”
  • “Our definition of ‘copies’ might need to change for the digital age.”

That’s a pretty good summary of precisely where copyright law has gone wrong.  Be sure to check out the full article.
