  • #Teddy Afro Victim of Digital Piracy


    Irrespective of your field of work how would you feel if someone steals your work and profiting from it? You will be so mad not only to the person who steal your work but also to the person who bought it or used that work. Well that is what is actually happening to our artists and creative industry on a daily basis.

    When the most talked about album of Teddy Afro, Ethiopia released today 500,000 CD copies were printed, to reach his diaspora fans the artist shared on his official page a link to buy his album, his fans calls for a campaign to respect the works of the artist by buying original copies.


    But 6 years of waiting, fans commitment to buy original CD, online buying option didn’t stop someone from somewhere in uploading a masterpiece on YouTube. For the person who will probably be Teddy Afro die hard fun it doesn’t matter if the album sold for 200,000 dollar what it matters is that he shared the music. Already YouTube user accounts from abdroid, Bini ጨርቆስ ልጅ and Sami Aki.

    Then why should one complain about the quality of works artists put out and why do we expect artist to release album as frequent as Rhianna which is mainly once a year.

    I also blame the artists in not paying attention to the trends in their industry. Teddy Afro could have easily put up his album on youtube on paid version and this would have given him automatic copyright notice and strike whenever someone upload his account. Also the artist did a poor job in maintaining his website and preserving his domain in which such domains are used by other persons who are known to the public.

  • Indian brides given bats to keep abusive husbands in check


    Hundreds of brides at an Indian mass wedding have been given wooden bats and urged to use them as weapons if their husbands turn abusive.

    Messages such as "for use against drunkards" are written on the paddles, which measure about 40cm (15in) and are more traditionally used for laundry.

    Gopal Bhargava, a state minister in Madhya Pradesh, said he wanted to highlight the issue of domestic abuse.

    He told the women to try to reason with their husbands before using them.

    But if their spouses refuse to listen, they should let the paddles - known as mogri and usually used to beat dirt out of clothes - "do the talking", he said.


    Savings 'spent on liquor'

    Mr Bhargava posted pictures of the brides with the bats on his Facebook page.

    He told AFP news agency that he had become concerned about the numbers of rural women who faced abuse from alcoholic husbands.

    "Women say whenever their husbands get drunk they become violent. Their savings are taken away and splurged on liquor," he said.
