After last week’s story about meetingpeopleiseasy.de facing a legal fine for hosting some live mp3s, I emailed Mel from w.a.s.t.e. to let Radiohead and their management know what was happening. Her response was:
“Although Radiohead do not object to MP3’s of their live music on the internet, unfortunately they do not own it.
All recorded music (whether live or not) is the property of EMI, and EMI’s world-wide piracy policy is very different to ours.
We are all concerned that these people face a fine, given many did not receive the initial warning e-mails (for whatever reason that may be).”
