Last week, the amount of money spent on vinyl music in the UK overtook digital downloads for the first time. Records are now firmly in the mainstream, but are they back for good, or is this just a stay of execution? (more on vinyl records…)
Marianne Grant is from the ‘Get it Right from a Genuine Site’ campaign, which is taking a whole new approach to reducing online copyright infringement and ensuring safe downloads. (more on legally downloading content…)
Tech products are now central to our lives, yet many of us aren’t aware of the rights we have when things go wrong with downloads. Are you missing out on refunds or repairs you’re legally entitled to?
Sometimes I look round my home and wonder how it got so cluttered – books I’ve read, CDs played to death, gadgets. The idea of getting rid of them and earning money sounds appealing, but is it too good to be true?
