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?

Fortunately there is quite some Free work available. If you use Creative Commons content, there's nothing Buma/Stemra nor BREINloos can do!

Here is a collection of Creative Commons music from various Dutch artist, for starters:

Not here in Sweden if you add creative commons music in a movie listen to it on radio in your company +more then you'll have to pay for it to STIM (the Swedish Performing Rights Society)

That's shocking news. There goes my illusion that the Scandinavian countries are much more sensible then the rest.

I wonder what gives those greedy bastards the right to earn money for Creative Commons work. They do not represent the artist who license their work under Creative Commons.

So in fact it is nothing but ordinary theft.

Scandalous ;-)
