    The greatest fun is first doing a home test, then a PCR test at a medical center, then a second PCR one in the ER ward in the hospital on the same day. I did this yesterday, all came negative: I have a severe infection, but not corona. =D

    My review of Omicron after 7 days: son, I am disappoint. This is like the minimum technical requirements to be sick. No fever, a bit of a runny nose (less than when having a cold), a bit of coughing (less than when having a cold).
    I was somewhere around Old Man Star, on the edge of Essence, when drugs began to take hold.

    “Very upset” Neil Young demands his music be pulled off Spotify over Joe Rogan’s vaccine misinformation on the platform
    Note that the troll brigade in the comments goes rambling about ""opinions/views", whereas Neil refers to facts. Reading comprehension really is at an all time low.

    That is an interesting question, and I think you phrased it wrong, which points out the subtile difference.

    At least in Germany, you can't sell your copyright. You can however sell the rights to the (exclusive) usage of your works. So it is still his music. I.e. ownership isn't transferred.

    The question I have and don't know the answer to, is: is there any jurisdiction which one trumps the other? Or must that be negotiated when someone sell the usage rights?

    I'm sure a couple of lawyers are going to make a heap of money arguing this either way.
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    Has it not been a bunch of artist who sold their records/recordings for large amounts and after the sale went into the studio to produce new versions which they themselves then owned.

    Taylor Shift's back catalogue was sold to someone she hated but because she had the writing credits she simply began re-recording them systematically. This works because she wrote them so she can essentially cover her own songs by giving herself permission whilst the other party is stuck owning rights for only the earlier recordings they bought, it's amusing.

    I'd like to know how much all that has ended up costing the prick who bought the rights to the original recordings.

    Neil Young sold 50% of the publish rights to his songs (also know as mechanical recording rights, as they tend to refer to specific recordings and not he actual conceptual song), which have nothing to do with copyright. From my reading on it, it sounds like he still has full control, and input, so, nope. He can do what he wants. I support it. I think we should stop listening to Spotify until they get rid of anti-human Rogan.
    meh

    I am scheduled for my booster shot today. Most likely will be Moderna, as my first two were BionTec and a mixture seems to have a better effect. Had nada side-effects from the first two, so fingers-crossed that I'll handle the 3rd equally well.

    Nah, not really relevant unless your first shot(s) were a non-mRNA vaccine(J&J, AZ, lolsputnik)

    Not sure if Neil had hoped for this outcome, but at least Spotify followed suit.
