DMCA Penalizes Classical Net Radio

Because classical net radio must play many works from the same CD (usually in a row, snicker) many classical net radio stations, including Kyle Gann's Postclassic Radio are having their service disrupted or delisted. Kyle's Blog Entry

It's difficult to imagine a copyright policy that would be so clueless about music and music history. It indicates to me, a mindset where the arts serve only to promote business interests, not the interests of the listener or the work (yes a work of art can have an interest, definitely with regards to it being presented appropriately).

On a side note, Kyle's blog entries continue not to be Reblogged because as I've reminded him, his Microsoft chars violate good XML!
