Punks Vs Microsoft
punkbands reports: Our friends at punknews.org reports - Former Ink & Dagger drummer Ryan McLaughlin has filed suit against software and gaming behemoth Microsoft. According to court papers filed by McLaughlin's lawyer last month, the suit calls for unspecified damages in a jury trial. 

The problem stems from what McLaughlin claims as the unlicensed use of three tracks from the influential goth-hardcore act and their 1998 album The Fine Art of Original Sin. The tracks in question, "The Fine Art of Original Sin (GFS Resonant Mix)," "The History in Ecstasy" and "VampireFastCode ver. 1.5." were used by the company in their 2001 snowboarding game Amped for their XBOX game console.

Boy George Homophobe?
Contact Music reports: [couldn't resist this one]Pop star GEORGE MICHAEL has blasted singer/DJ BOY GEORGE for acting "homophobic" towards fellow gay men.

"He acts in a homophobic way to other gay men by being such a bitch. It's an aggression that he can't get rid off."

Earlier this year (05), Boy George said, "People saw me as the benchmark queer while George was passing himself off as a straight stud. In fact, he was loitering in public loos (toilets) like some pre-war homosexual. It's one thing to keep quiet. It's another to pretend you're someone you're not."

Sonygate?
tinfoil.music reports: BusinessWeek: Sony BMG is in a catfight with a well-known computer-security outfit that became aware of the software problem on Sept. 30 and notified the music company on Oct. 4 -- nearly a month before the issue blew up. F-Secure, a Finland-based antivirus company that prides itself on being the first to spot new malware outbreaks, says Sony BMG didn't understand the software it was introducing to people's computers and was slow to react. 

"If [Sony] had woken up and smelled the coffee when we told them there was a problem, they could have avoided this trouble," says Mikko H. Hypponen, F-Secure's director of antivirus research. [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Deadheads Boycott Dead
tinfoil.music reports: RollingStone: Grateful Dead fans, perhaps rock's most dedicated bunch, are taking a stand against the band they love. Until recently, Deadheads could download countless live recordings of the band for free from third-party sites, including the popular Live Music Archive (archive.org), which once hosted nearly 3,000 Grateful Dead shows. All of the downloads were pulled last week at the request of Grateful Dead Merchandising (GDM), the group that handles official products for the band and is overseen by its surviving members. 

Deadheads have answered in protest. In an online petition, fans have pledged to boycott GDM -- including CDs and concert tickets -- until the decision is reversed. [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
