Had to crank out a story on tight deadline about digital music rights in Europe: 2 states in EU ease sales of songs over Internet
Selling music online in Europe could currently require an online music operater to get up to 25 licenses (one from each country) in order to operate, a situation Brussels seems strongly bent on changing: Collecting agencies in other European Union member states could face fines of up to 10 percent of their total revenue if they fail to open up in a similar manner, the official said.
Interesting to see the EU is tackling hurdles to running a digital business. Are they doing enough?
