the grass is greener on the internet

It’s all in the music

A quick observation that tonight 7’s current affairs stories were using lotto music in the background (um, but the jackpot was yesterday?) and 9’s current affairs cooking competition feature was using the same music as 10’s Masterchef.

Both complete coincidences, of course.

I find this interesting having just studied copyright, passing off and ‘misleading and deceptive conduct’… I don’t think either are quite close enough to attract legal action but it would be interesting to see if they could…

[In a related key, check out Hype Machine – it compiles music which is blogged then allows you to rate and see which is the most popular. Presents some nice alternatives to the mainstream so you can discover more songs riding the long tail.]
