    Netflix and Amazon users sue to stop Chicago’s 9% streaming tax

    'All About That Bass' writer decries streaming revenue

    Producer and songwriter Kevin Kadish, one of the first speakers, zeroed in on financial challenges songwriters face with music streaming services. "I've never heard a songwriter complain about radio royalties as much as streaming royalties," Kadish said. "That was the real issue for us, like 1 million streams equals $90. For a song like 'All About That Bass,' that I wrote, which had 178 million streams. I mean $5,679? That's my share.

    T-Mobile: We're Not Throttling YouTube, We're 'Optimizing' It!

    Last week, YouTube complained about T-Mobile's new "Binge On" service, which exempts many of the bigger video services from user wireless user usage caps. The service, enabled by default, means video won't count against your cap, but all streaming video services get throttled back to 480p. YouTube's complaint is this: for T-Mobile users, all video services are throttled by default, even services that haven't struck any deals with T-Mobile.

    T-Mobile Is Flat Out Lying: It's Throttling Video Even Though It Says It's Not

    Big companies often have a way of tap dancing around the truth. It's rarely lying, because they will choose their words carefully, in a manner that clearly misleads or distorts, but is not necessarily outright lying. T-Mobile, however, appears to be flat out lying. We recently wrote about the charges from YouTube that T-Mobile was throttling YouTube videos as part of its Binge On program that zero rates video on mobile phones so it doesn't count against data caps.

    Verizon just blatantly betrayed net neutrality by excluding its video app from data caps

    The FCC's net neutrality rules, passed last year, explicitly ban internet providers from a number of discriminatory measures like throttling and blocking, but there's evidently a huge loophole that every major wireless carrier in the US has rushed to exploit. T-Mobile's Binge On program, which throttles video content, is troublesome — but AT&T and Verizon's programs are much worse, especially the one Verizon just announced today in the fine print...

    Pirate Bay Founder: Streaming Model Could Ignite New Piracy War

    After signing up to Spotify several years ago one of my first tasks was to begin hand-crafting playlists of the thousands of 1980s and 1990s dance tracks I had previously bought on vinyl. Once lovingly stacked and indexed in a spare room, these much-loved relics of a bygone era are now gathering dust in the attic, probably never to be played again. Or at least that’s what I thought.

    After Netflix crackdown on border-hopping, Canadians ready to return to piracy

    Many Canadians are enraged by Netflix's declared war on cross-border watchers, who skirt the company's rules by sneaking across virtual borders to stream Netflix shows and movies restricted to other countries. Sometimes it's hard to be satisfied with Netflix Canada's library when our American neighbours have, it's estimated, access to almost double the content. Since mid-January, the streaming service giant is cracking down on border hoppers by blocking access to foreign content.

    Cramer shocked that so many Netflix users bailing over a couple extra bucks

    Netflix's price increases scared people away from the streaming service, and the volume of unsubscribes surprised Jim Cramer. "Something happened here where people decided that content wasn't worth paying for," Cramer said Tuesday on "Squawk on the Street" , a day after the company reported that it missed its subscriber goal in the second quarter. "I would never in a million years say I'm not paying the additional couple [of dollars]." The entertainment-streaming service missed its subscriber goal of 2.5 million in the second quarter.
