Published

on

While mainstream medias are now only covering the actual news and are listed collabors of music major executive, the actual jurisprudence that could result from it could be this century bigget disaster.

The founder of the mixtape streaming/downloading service Spinrilla has found himself in litigation, after major music labels issued a lawsuit against Spinrilla for leaking over 21.000 songs. As for the Megaupload CEO, Kim Dotcom, the verdict of such trial could endanger a lot of internet users who have during the past twenty years exchanged data through different platforms and could be subjected to many lawsuits concerning the matter.

let us explain and put this into perspective our point of view. If one of those trials would end up with a criminal liabilty.

this would then results in creating a jurisprudence any copyright holder could claim during a trial to sue anyone sharing content.

As a result, you could be charged for sharing links to copyrighted contents, or even  for facebooking live stream of a song in your car or a like earlier this week steaming a boxing match which is live on pay-per-view or cable channels.

On Friday (Feb. 3), The Recording Industry Association of America sued the website and its founder Jeffery Dylan Copeland in Georgia federal court, according to Hollywood Reporter. The labels listed on the suit include, UMG, Sony Music Entertainment, Warner Bros. Records, Atlantic Recording Corporation and LaFace Records.

The recording companies are claiming that Spinrilla is giving away their copyrighted works.

“Through the Spinrilla website and apps, users with an artist account can upload content that any other user can then download or stream on demand for free, an unlimited number of times,” writes attorney James Lamberth in court documents. “A substantial amount of content uploaded to the Spinrilla website and apps consists of popular sound recordings whose copyrights are owned by Plaintiffs.”

Over 21,000 copyrighted works have been pointed out in the legal action as being made available for free by the site. In a statement issued by the RIAA, the company chastised the site, writing, “Spinrilla specializes in ripping off music creators by offering thousands of unlicensed sound recordings for free. Fans today have access to millions upon millions of songs from innovative platforms and services that pay creators — this kind of illicit activity has no place in today’s music marketplace.”

As of press time, Spinrilla is still up and operating. A take down notice on the site states: “Spinrilla takes copyright infringement very seriously. In order to provide the best mixtapes and ensure top quality we do not allow infringed upon works to be posted on our website.”

The labels are seeking actual or statutory damages and an injunction.

NFL Fines Antoine Winfield Jr. $7,815 For Taunting Tyreek Hill During Super Bowl

Published

on

The NFL has fined Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive back Antoine Winfield Jr. $7,815 for taunting Kansas City Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill during the Super Bowl, earlier this month. Winefield explained that the taunt was revenge for all the times Hill had done the same move to receivers throughout the season, including against the Bucs during their Week 12 matchup earlier in the year.

”The taunting, it was something I had to do,” Winefield said after the Super Bowl. “When we played them earlier (Tyreek)Hill went off on us. He back-flipped in front of my face and gave me the peace sign. So it was only right I gave him the peace sign right back. It felt amazing to be able to do that”

Hill torched the Bucs for 269 yards and three touchdowns during Week 12, but in the Super Bowl, he was held to just 73 yards. Winfield threw Hill’s taunt back at him with 4:06 remaining after successfully defending a fourth-down pass.

The Bucs dominated the Super Bowl, winning 31-9, and securing Tom Brady’s 7th championship.

The New York Mets have once again invited former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow to join their spring training roster. Tebow, who won the Heisman Trophy in 2007, first returned to professional baseball in 2016. He’s been invited back to join the Mets for spring training each of the last four years.

In 34 games with the Mets, Tebow has batted .151 and hit his first home-run last spring.

In 2019, Tebow said he’s still optimistic regarding his hopes of making it to the major league: “That would obviously be something that would be special, and I think another part of the dream,” Tebow said. “Part of it’s just playing every day and enjoying it and competing, which I love. Obviously, that would be awesome. It would be a lie if I said that wouldn’t be super cool. … But I wouldn’t say it would be a success or failure if that did or did not happen.”

During the rest of the year, Tebow works as a football analyst for SEC Network.

In the NFL, during the 2011 season, Tebow led the Denver Broncos to their first playoff victory since 2005, after beating the Pittsburgh Steelers in overtime.

“Over the past 11 years there were promises made to protect and portray my story, with the authenticity and honesty I gave. I was betrayed, taken advantage of, overworked, and underpaid. I wrote a letter over 2 months ago asking to be freed from what I believed was excessive and unfair. I explained in personal detail the demise I was experiencing. My cry for help went totally ignored,” she says, blaming the executives at WeTV. “However the demands persisted. It was my spirit, and my soul that was tainted the most.”

Her lengthy message explains all that she went through as a member of the entertainment industry and how it took a toll on her as a person. She concludes by saying that what happened on July 16 was her “attempt to end my pain and my life.”



Continue sending prayers, love, and positivity to Tamar Braxton.
