The RIAA wants to "fix" music licensing. Glenn Peoples, writing for Billboard, explains:
The RIAA believes any fix to the music licensing system should include a simplified, blanket license that pays a fair market value to creators and copyright owners. In its 52-page filing to the Copyright Office, the RIAA argues that a market-derived royalty system would benefit rights holders and creators, product greater consumer choice, cost savings for digital services due to simpler licensing procedures, improved transparency and accuracy of royalty payments, and help spur new business models and services by providing greater transparency of the costs and eliminating the delays caused by litigation.

Billboard and Twitter have teamed up to present the "real-time charts" to track the most popular music being shared on the social network.
The first is Billboard Trending 140, which compares the frequency a song is shared over the past hour with the hourly average of shares in the last day. The second is Billboard Twitter Emerging Artists, which ranks songs from artists with less than 50,000 Twitter followers by the volume of shares in a 24-hour period. There will also be weekly summaries showing the most popular tracks on Twitter during that time span.

Linkin Narc, I mean Park, have disputed the claim by Sublime with Rome that they ratted the band out to the cops. Mile Shinoda posted on Twitter:
LP didn’t “call the cops” on @RomeMusica smoking pot. Not sure where the rumor came from. Definitely not my style, bummer it happened. We were at a meet & greet when Sublime was on stage, not dressing room. Wouldn’t even know if there was smoke. If someone was “representing the band” to the cops in the venue about weed smoke, they were out of line.

Baseball is a proud sport, one with almost unlimited tradition and the sport that, perhaps, is most dear to America's heart. 50 Cent's ceremonial first pitch at last night's New York Mets vs. Pittsburgh Pirates game was neither proud nor traditional, but the Internet will hold it dear to its heart for many moons to come. Put blankly, you couldn't throw a baseball this poorly if you tried your hardest. It's in the replies, of course, where these sorts of things belong.

Read my review and check out my photos of Day 2 of the Boston Calling Music Festival, which featured performances from Death Cab For Cutie, The Decemberists, Frank Turner and more.
Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls may have put on the best performance of Boston Calling. The pace was set immediately as they opened with "Photosynthesis," in which Turner wailed on his trusty acoustic and guitarist Ben Lloyd ripped a solo on the electric mandolin. It was Turner's 1,568th show, as he proudly told the audience, but his boundless energy (perhaps owed to his hardcore roots) made it feel one-of-a-kind.

Danah Boyd wrote a thought provoking piece on how the idea of "selling out" is now practically dead to teens. And to think, just a few years ago that was the biggest slam thrown at bands.
These teens are not going to critique their friends for being sell-outs because they’ve already been sold out by the adults in their world. These teens want freedom and it’s our fault that they don’t have it except in commercial spaces. These teens want opportunities and we do everything possible to restrict those that they have access to. Why should we expect them to stand up to commercial surveillance when every adult in their world surveils their every move “for their own good”? Why should these...

In this week's edition of The Sunday Times, ex-Lostprophets guitarists Lee Gaze and Mike Lewis have broken their silence over the Ian Watkins scandal. If you're not registered for The Sunday Times, some excerpts can be found on The PRP.
"Obviously what's gone on with these children far supersedes what's happened to us," concludes Gaze. "We're strong enough to get back on our feet and carry on doing whatever we want to do, but there are children who are going to grow up without parents and that makes us incredibly sad."

The Bravery will not be returning "for the foreseeable future" due to various other projects and passions.
To answer your many queries, the band has not "broken up," nothing so dramatic as that. We just aren't doing anything together and don't have any plans to for the foreseeable future. There's been no "falling out," no bad blood, we all just have different interests now and are involved in our own projects.

Definitely. The biggest challenge was making sure that I was basing the story around the real emotions of loss and the understanding and journey back from those kids of things; the toll it takes on you when you lose somebody in your life, whether it be from death or them deciding that they don't want to be a part of your life anymore, and you having to fill that hole in your heart. As a whole, it's a...
