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?

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 ;-)

STIM collects royalties for all artists (even those that are not members because they can always get a membership later)
