Music Copying Legalized In The UK

(Classic Rock) Copying music for personal use is now legal in the UK - 13 years after Apple's iTunes introduced its CD-ripping function. Until now it's been regarded as piracy to make copies of tracks for backup purposes, or for use on another listening platform. The Intellectual Property Act, which came into force this week, has changed that. Users are now able to keep multiple copies of material they've purchased - but they're not allowed to keep those copies if they sell on the original item they bought. It remains illegal to record streamed music or copy a rented title. Sellers remain able to secure material with DRM software. Minister for Intellectual Property Baroness Neville-Rolfe tells the BBC: "These changes are to bring our laws into the 21st century. They mean that the UK is now responsive to the modern business environment, and more flexible for consumers."

Roger Waters Reacts To New Pink Floyd Album

(hennemusic) Roger Waters has issued a statement regarding the forthcoming album by Pink Floyd, "The Endless River." Due November 10 (Nov. 11 in North America), "The Endless River" is Pink Floyd's first new album in 20 years. "Some people have been asking Laurie, my wife, about a new album I have coming out in November," writes Waters. "Errhh? I don't have an album coming out, they are probably confused. "David Gilmour and Nick Mason have an album coming out. It's called Endless River. David and Nick constitute the group Pink Floyd. I on the other hand, am not part of Pink Floyd." "I left Pink Floyd in 1985, that's 29 years ago," he continues. "I had nothing to do with either of the Pink Floyd studio albums, Momentary Lapse of Reason and The Division Bell, nor the Pink Floyd tours of 1987 and 1994, and I have nothing to do with Endless River. Phew! This is not rocket science people, get a grip."

Black Sabbath Plan Final Album and Farewell Tour

(Classic Rock) Black Sabbath are to record a final album together and will launch their final tour, Ozzy Osbourne has exclusively revealed to Metal Hammer. The heavy metal legends will team up with producer Rick Rubin once again to record the follow-up to 2013's hugely successful 13 album. Speaking to Classic Rock at the end of 2013, Ozzy, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler were hesitant about the possibility of making one final Sabbath album - "I don't know if it would be the right thing to do," Iommi admitted. "But who knows. The history of this band has taught me to never say never" - but frontman Ozzy now says that the band will begin work on the album next year. "The whole Sabbath experience this time around was great," says Ozzy. "We all made friends, we didn't f*** around, we all knew that we had a job to do, and we did it. It was a lot of fun. So we're going to do one more album, and a final tour. Once the dust settled after the last tour we started discussing the idea, because we were getting asked about it all the time. I said to Sharon 'What's going on? Because if there's no more Sabbath I want to get on with my own thing again' and she came back and said 'Let me look into it.' Three weeks later I asked her about it again, and she said 'Oh, I still have to talk to so and so...' and I said 'Sharon, I ain't f*****g 21 any more, if we're going to do it I want to do it before I'm 70!' Time isn't on our side! So she made the call and came back and said 'Yeah, the record company wants another album.' I believe Rick Rubin is going to do it with us again."
