Podcast Notes: Detained Doctors, Radiohead and Pro-Gamers
Back after a short absence, this will be the last Pods and Blogs for around six weeks as we make way for races of the Olympic and US political kind.
This week the programme featured:
- The plight of detained Iranian doctors, and the campaign do free them discussed with Frank Donaghue of Physicians for Human Rights who spoke to us from Mexico
- A lawsuit against Google Streetview in the US prompted one US ethics organisation to turn the tables on a top figure at the company Kenneth Bohm of the NLPC explained what they did.
- Consultants BigChampagne discover that users prefered to get Radioheads "In Rainbows" pay-what-you-think-it's-worth download from unofficial sources. Even though the research was carried out with the MCPS-PRS, a music collection/rights body, Eric Garland of BigChampagne thought it pointed to the need for a different approach to dealing with file sharing.
- The BBC's Jamillah Knowles spoke with Britain's Champion Gamers: Birmingham Salvo
