Universal music hijacks Youtube videos of Bjørn Lynne
The musician Bjørn Lynne, well-known from the demo scene, is in trouble with the Universal Music Group (UMG): The company claimed to Youtube to possess the rights to two songs of Lynne - actually UMG has the rights to an audiobook that uses Lynne's music track "Kingdom of the Persians" as background music.

Universal forced Youtube monetizing the songs: They've hijacked the ads on the original video. In the linked article on TorrentFreak, Lynne desribed how he managed to get back the rights to his music. (cg) (Translation: dr)

"Guide to Amiga Compatible Programming" as Markdown-/HTML-document
The "Amiga Compatible Programming Guide" written by Gianfranco "ShInKurO" Gignina (e.g. NoWinEd) is an introduction to the development of cross-platform Amiga applications focused on the development of graphical user-interfaces with MUI.

So far the guide has been available as text files without special formatting and was now converted to Markdown. Therefore it is now possible to read the guide with a Markdown Reader or to convert it to different format, e.g. HTML and PDF. A HTML-version already has been created for free download.
