Podcasting news…

Makeaud-1-1It’s been an interesting week for the world of DIY audio -podcasting. A couple new issues have presented themselves, the first- it seems Feedburner gave out the number of subscribers to “This Week in Tech’s” show. Leo, the show’s host, says is against the privacy policy and also wrong Link. The second is PodShow’s policy on music licensing as covered on BoingBoing, it appears to prohibit you from referencing “software piracy (warez, cracking, etc.), hacking, phreaking, emulators, ROM’s, or illegal MP3 activity” in your shows Link. Opinions?

  1. the ceo commented on leo’s blog. basically he said “TWiT’s feed had the “Awareness API” enabled, which actually grants permission to make the circulation stats to be publicly available”. seems like they’re trying to solve the problem with leo.

  2. Freedom of speech…whatever! Politics and politicians ruin technology. But that’s ok, resistance improves our technology. It just sucks that we have to find ways around things that are supposed to help improve and enhance our lives. I feel Leo did the right thing. The podshow policy will create the term “illegal pocast” which may lead to pirate or underground podcasting. If this happens music labels may lose out to people who like to use work-arounds (hacking, cracking, etc.) People like having stuff that they’re not supposed to have. If anything use bit-torrent as a last resort.
