Legal Here on OSNews I've already talked about various copyright related issues here in The Netherlands - obviously because I'm Dutch and live there. As a small nation, the copyright issues we face here serve as nice, comprehensible discussion starters that we can all grok. Well, we've got another one. Our own RIAA equivalent has caused quite the stir by announcing that they will start charging bloggers and social website users for embedding YouTube videos with copyrighted content. Say what?

Actually that blank CD levy in Canada is an interesting thing.

We have the same thing in the Netherlands, where there's another organisation controlling the levy. They want it on MP3 players as well, which would double their cost. Luckily up till now this has been barred by the government, pointing to a lack of European legislation on the point.
