BBC Click is currently reporting that Time Warner has abandoned DRM so there is only one major still holding out. They're wrong - Sony has thrown in the towel too!

John Kennedy, chairman and chief executive of IFPI

"Illegal downloads still outnumber legal by 20 to one. I am relieved that the proportion hasn't grown since last year, but I am horrified at a ratio of 5:95 for legal sales"

Somehow I think they are flogging a dead horse. If you look at what a DVD costs to produce compared to the selling cost, then make the same comparisons on an audio CD, it's apparent what a huge rip-off CDs have always been. This is particularly true here in the UK where we've been exploited for so long.

The days of the big record company are over, and their "money for old rope" back-catalogue profits too. I don't buy the nonsense that this will kill the music industry. Technology always opens more doors than it closes.

      A caring and much-loved great-great-grandmother has enjoyed birthday greetings from over 3,000 people as she turns 100.
      Former care assistant Rosie Cochrane entered her second century on January 21 this year.
      Although lockdown means the celebration, from her assisted living home in Bedlington, wasn't quite what she might have planned before the pandemic, granddaughter Christine Logan was determined to ensure 'Granny Rosie' was showered with love on her special day.
      Northumberland County Council fostering team manager Christine said: “Growing up I would watch her and my mam care for others, and just knew I wanted to do the same.
      "She has always put others first and cared for others where she can, be it family, friends or through her work. She is a real inspiration and it is because of her I chose my career path and have also fostered to help others in any way I can.
      "It has been a really difficult time not being able to see her. She loves to get her nails and hair done, go shopping and travel. But we know we must do all we can to keep her safe and ourselves right now.
