The battle between the creator of software for free music downloads and a couple of record labels has ended with a staggering defeat for the labels. The creator of the software, better known as the Spanish Napster, informed Torrentfreak with that news.
He also told the torrent-website that he will put more effort in developing the software now that the record labels are of his back. He also instantly released a new version of his download software for music that is driven by Bittorrent-technology.
The Battle between the Napster-like software and a couple of major labels started in 2008. In that year EMI, Sony, Warner, Universal and other labels sued MP2P Technologies. That company, founded by Pablo Soto, developed Blubster. With the Blubster software it was, and still is, possible to easily share and download free music files.

Consumers in the UK will face a big change in copyright laws. And this time things might changing for the better: The UK government will legalise the rippping of CD and DVD for personal use. Next to the legislation of ripping music cd and dvd the new law also broadens other forms of fair use. The new law means at least one thing for people who download music now: you can legally rip your cd to make mp3 files for use on your smartphone, tablet or mp3-player or as a backup in case you lose the original cd.
Currently the use of software to make mp3 files for cd’s you own is illegal in the UK. This means it is currently not legal to make backup copies for cd’s, dvd’s and other media. For most consumers this doesn’t make any sense. And because of that the UK government decided to change the law and legalise the use of software to make mp3 files and to rip dvd.
