Attn: Troll

March 22nd, 2008 at 03:53 am

Savings log - $2 tip box
Spending log - $1.19 coffee + $12 lunch

Very quiet day at work - several people were out sick or on PTO. Not only that, it was restful - the phone didn't ring once today. I attribute it to both: the non-pious concentrating on "March madness", and the pious concentrating on Good Friday.

DJ friend was looking for someone to do his taxes, his normal guy got sick. I gave him a recommendation for the place I used two weeks ago. However, I tossed my coupons. (I saved them for a few days, trying to figure out who I could give them to but in the end my hatred of crap lying around the house won out). I stopped by the CPA on the way home and the office gave me new ones, so perhaps I get $20 off.

My subject line doesn't refer to anyone here, or anyone I interact with online. DJ friend is wrestling with a guy from another Internet radio station stealing the content of his radio stream. For a monthly fee, DJ friend had a lawyer write the guy. The guy has no name (not a surprise) but calls himself troll. So the letter is addressed Attn: Troll, and the salutation is Dear Troll. Its a serious letter, but the "Attn: Troll" made me smile.

    "DJ friend is wrestling with a guy from another Internet radio station stealing the content of his radio stream."
    For the unenlightened (me) can you explain what this means?

    Nic - DJ friend commissions original works and remixes from other DJs to broadcast on his Internet radio station for shows - just like a regular radio station. If the music is a remix, it means that DJ friend pays royalties (to ASCAP/BMI?) for the use of the music. As a US radio station, he is very seriously monitored ... it created the hitch that delayed launching his radio station for about 4 months.

    What the another US Internet radio station is doing is rebroadcasting DJ friend's broadcasts w/o attribution to DJ friend's radio station and w/o paying full royalties.

    Thanks for the lesson. I hope your friend can get it straightened out w/the troll.
