Großbritannien: Kulturflatrate bis Ende des Jahres?

Die Regierung in Großbritannien hat es geschafft, die Musikindustrie und die Internet Service Provider an einen Tisch zu holen um über die Machbarkeit einer Kulturflatrate zu verhandeln. Und offensichtlich tut sich da was.

“Legal broadband subscription services that permit file sharing may appear on the market by the year’s end, according to music industry sources – after government intervention brought both music suppliers and ISPs to the table. […] As envisaged, the new music services track exchanges of songs within a network using non-intrusive technology, and reward rights holders by their popularity. The new services provides advantages for subscribers, networks and rights holders. […] And for both networks and music companies, music services that for the first time match consumers’ online activity may end the eternal arms race between enforcement and unlicensed music outlets.”

Ich behaupte mal: es wird passieren, und es wird ein Erfolg.
