Virgin State of Mind

This is one of my all time favourite songs, from the wonderful Flemish band K's Choice. Dani introduced me to them and I love this song in particular.

There's a chair in my head on which I used to sit
Took a pencil and I wrote the following on it
Now there's a key where my wonderful mouth used to be
Dig it up and throw it at me. Dig it up, throw it at me
Where can I run to, where can I hide?
Who will I turn to now I'm in a virgin state of mind?
Got a knife to disengage the voids that I can't bear
To cut out words I've got written on my chair
Like "do you think I'm sexy,
do you think I really care?"
Can I burn the mazes I grow?
Can I? I don't think so
Where can I run to, where can I hide?
Who will I turn to now I'm in a virgin state of mind?

Just to clear my name here I so do not have the Buffy Soundtrack (not that there's anything wrong with that).

Exister, I have to say that I don't know which of K's Choice's albums this is on. They are difficult to find here in Canada so I downloaded this and some other of their songs.

Of course that would be very bad if I didn't delete it after 24 hours. Music piracy is very, very naughty. To all the kids out there: "just say no" to evil p2p. (reply to this comment

File sharing legal - Canada

John Borland

Both downloading music and making it available for sharing are legal in Canada, a judge has ruled

Sharing copyrighted works on peer-to-peer networks is legal in Canada, a federal judge ruled on Wednesday, handing the record industry a sharp setback in its international fight against file swappers.

Canadian record labels had asked the court for authorisation to identify 29 alleged file swappers in that country, in preparation for suing them for copyright infringement, much as the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) has sued more than 1500 people in America.

But the judge denied that request. In a far-ranging decision, the court further found that both downloading music and putting it in a shared folder available to other people online appeared to be legal in Canada.

"This has certainly stalled [the record industry's] current round of litigation, and... thrown into doubt whether there is infringement at all," said Michael Geist, a University of Ottawa law professor who closely follows Canadian copyright issues.

The Canadian Recording Industry Association (CRIA), which brought the case, said it did not agree with the judge's ruling.

"We are reviewing the decision received today from the trial court and expect to appeal it," CRIA General Counsel Richard Pfohl said in a statement. "In our view, the copyright law in Canada does not allow people to put hundreds or thousands of music files on the Internet for copying, transmission and distribution to millions of strangers."

The ruling affects only Canada, but it could have wider repercussions if it stands. The US-based RIAA has filed hundreds of lawsuits against file swappers in hopes of lessening the amount of copyrighted material available for download through peer-to-peer networks such as Kazaa or Morpheus.

But many studies, including one this week from professors at Harvard and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, have noted that computer users on peer-to-peer networks often download material across national borders.

Canada's debate over file swapping flared last December, when the country's Copyright Board, which regulates intellectual property issues, ruled that downloading songs from a peer-to-peer network for personal use -- but not necessarily uploading -- appeared to be legal.

The regulators cited a long-standing rule in Canada, in which most copying for personal use was allowed. To repay artists and record labels for revenue lost by this activity, the government imposes a fee on blank tapes, CDs and even hard disk-based MP3 players such as Apple Computer's iPod, and distributes that revenue to copyright holders.

At the time, CRIA attorneys said they did not agree with the Copyright Board's decision, and that they expected courts to rule differently. Last month, they launched the first step in filing lawsuit against alleged music sharers, seeking authorisation from the courts to identify 29 Net users at various Internet service providers (ISPs) around the country.

In his ruling Wednesday, Judge Konrad von Finckenstein rejected that request on several grounds. In part, he said the recording industry had not presented evidence linking the alleged file swapping to the ISP subscribers that was strong enough to warrant breaking through critical privacy protections.

But he also questioned whether CRIA had a copyright case at all.

With respect to downloading, the judge accepted the Copyright Board's early decision almost without comment. But he went further, citing a recent Supreme Court decision to say that making music available online also appeared to be legal.

In that recent case, the Supreme Court ruled that libraries were not "authorising" copyright infringement simply by putting photocopy machines near books. The libraries were justified in assuming that their customers were using the copiers in a legal manner, the high court ruled.

Finckenstein said the same rationale should apply to peer-to-peer users.

"The mere fact of placing a copy on a shared directory in a computer where that copy can be accessed via a P2P service does not amount to distribution," Finckenstein wrote. "Before it constitutes distribution, there must be a positive act by the owner of the shared directory, such as sending out the copies or advertising that they are available for copying."

Ottawa's Geist said this appeared to make uploading itself legal as well, since a peer-to-peer user -- such as a library -- would be entitled to assume that the person on the other side of the connection was acting legally, since downloading was also legal in Canada.

The decision was hailed by Net activists on both sides of the border.

"I think it is a big victory for technology and the Internet and all the people who use technology and the Internet in Canada," said Howard Knopf, an attorney who works with the Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic at the University of Ottawa. "The court accepted that copyright legislation has to be read as it is, not as CRIA would like it to be."

The decision is likely to spur more legislative action in Canada, however. The country has not yet ratified World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) treaties that contain more specific language saying that only copyright holders or their licensees have the ability to make copyrighted works available to others.

In the United States, the provisions of that treaty were implemented in the controversial Digital Millennium Copyright Act. CRIA has lobbied hard to have a similar bill introduced in Canada, but without success yet. However, the Canadian government has recently indicated that a WIPO implementation bill could be introduced and passed by the end of this year.

On Tuesday, the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry said it was filing 247 lawsuits against alleged file sharers in Denmark, Germany, Italy and Canada.(reply to this comment

I was wondering because I couldn't seem to find it on any of their studio releases. One can be forgiven for owning the soundtrack to a cheeseball movie if it has cool tunes on it.

Of course you deleted it and all subsequent copies, didn't you? You wouldn't want the RIAA hopping over into Canada and taking you to court like they did with all of those 12 year olds in the US. :-)(reply to this comment
