Anne Muir filesharing case on BBC radio Scotland

Yesterday Anne Muir was sentenced to three years probation. She’s the first person in Scotland to be convicted of illegal file sharing, and there was a discussion on BBC Radio Scotland about the case, featuring Pirate Party founder Rick Falkvinge and music industry lawyer Murray Buchanan.

Interestingly, Mr Buchanan acknowledges that the music industry’s business model is broken and wants music to be funded by a £1 or £2 fee on people’s monthly broadband bill. This is encouraging, because it is evidence that more and more people are realising that the current copyright and patent systems are broken.

The discussion is 4:12 minutes long and is available in OGG (2.8 MB) and MP3 (3.9 MB) formats.
