The IPKat notes another instance of European isolationism at work (naturally enough, involving the French language). Given that France and Benelux are the European exponents of strong droit moraleso much stronger that it causes an immense amount of difficulty when dealing with, say, photographs originating thereit seems to me that there's little excuse for publishing a finding that one of those nations is not complying with EU copyright law in French only. But I can't say I'm entirely surprised.
Americans, though, are much more famous for our linguistic isolationism than are them durned furriners. Today's Frankfurter Rundschau includes a fascinating and educational piece on as Islamic demonstration against terrorism in Köln involving 30,000 people. Many of the people who most need to read the piece won't, though, as it's in Germanand particularly colloquial German at that.
Finally, though, some hard numbers are starting to come in on record-company profits in the age of digital musicand they're not nearly as gloomy as the RIAA (for one) would have you believe. Of course, that's in Europe; but then, there are more people in Europe than in the US, and the size of the market shouldn't really matter, should it?
