Whenever I'm attending any kind of music conference there's one thing I'm curious about most: How many musicians are to be found at this event?

I told you, we soon would change the main host for the files - due to GEMA (Germany's collecting society). Hosting the files myself would make my blog a shop - even if the download's for free.

The full programme featuring seven theme tracks can still be found online. We are working on the documentation right now and got some marvellous feedback. Taking place for the second year now, the Berlin music conference has changed its face in many ways.

Know what: I f***ing hate having no web in train. For four hours. Four hours I could have been working. Ok. I give up.

The New York Times’ online archive holds the oldest message in regards to the topic of piracy in music industry.
