It may have taken them about fifteen years, but MTV has finally released its entire catalogue of music videos to the public for free streaming on MTVMusic.com. They’re embeddable. They go back almost 50 years, and there are millions of them.
Exact Mobile has been issued a multi-million Rand summons by the National Organisation for Reproduction Rights in Music in Southern Africa (NORM).
According to the summons [full release], NORM has asked for an order in terms of which Exact Mobile must cease infringing the copyright of NORM’s members and pay a royalty of 7,5% which it regards as reasonable, backdated to January 1st 2006.
