Multimedia, AV I generally need a billion words to explain the problems inherit in the current copyright system. Joss Stone needs just one minute. "I don't care how you hear it - as long as you hear it." Can we please appoint Ms Stone as supreme overlord of the universe?

If I play your music on my podcast my listeners might like it and go to your website to buy your stuff.
If I play your music in my store my customers might like it and go to your website to buy your stuff.
The point being that I first have to like your stuff before I want to support you by buying your stuff.

Agreed, but I think it should be up to the artist to realize that. If they want to make it available for free use in podcasts/store ambiance,then they should release it using a CC license or the like. If not, then you should respectfully let them toil in obscurity if that is what they so choose.

The way copyright is used by the music and movie industry is harmful to the people that make/buy music and movies.

Agreed. The concept of copyright has been greatly twisted over the years to the point it is no longer serving it's intended purpose. People should inform themselves on the nature of copyright (again, Lawrence Lessig, Free Culture, Google it).
