UK Police accused of Copyright infringement

June 13, 2008 Leave a comment

While the obscene behaviour of the US copyright enforcement agencies hasn’t yet reached the UK, it appears one group who really should know better have been caught. The Lancashire Police force has been accused of copyright infringement by the Performing Rights Society. It appears the bobbies have been playing music in their police stations and to telephone callers on hold, without the necessary licenses.

Perhaps the most shocking part is that Lancashire police are one of eleven county forces that have refused to pay licensing fees to the PRS. Does this mean British police are refusing to obey the law?

Evil Overlord Howto

Now this is funny. Sff.net have a list of do’s and don’ts for Evil Overlord wanabe’s, Heroes, Starfleet Captains and several other traditional fantasy roles. With some great advice like ‘My ventilation ducts will be too small to crawl through’ and ‘I will install seatbelts in my space vessels’ this is something all writers should read. Especially Star Trek writers.
