Boing Boing-Posting von letzter Woche, das zeigt, was für ein Wahnsinn nach der Pro-Upload-Filter-Abstimmung von heute absofort noch viel häufiger auf uns zukommen wird:

James Rhodes, a pianist, performed a Bach composition for his Facebook account, but it didn’t go up — Facebook’s copyright filtering system pulled it down and accused him of copyright infringement because Sony Music Global had claimed that they owned 47 seconds‘ worth of his personal performance of a song whose composer has been dead for 300 years.
