Hello all friends,

Accident at home:
there was an accident in my home flat and nearly all electrical stuff like TV, kitchen-clocks and radio receivers (including my whole shack equipment) are damaged by an electric stroke, they do not work. So for a few days I will listen via the web-S.D.R. in Twente, Netherlands by using my notebook, especially tomorrow the Radio 700 and naturally the brand-new Global24_Radio. But please be not surprised if I report also some web-stations which have broadcasted in the past years on shortwave and are back in the meantime via the internet.-

Law change for freedom in the internet:
The European SupremeCourt ("Europ√§ischer Gerichtshof") made public a final decision of himself. Before a few days the judges decided that it is not against the law if someone "frame" a youtube-video and publish a really strange and foreign video inside his own webpage with the open embedded code - which you find easy under every youtube video. For Germany the Lawyer Association made clear that this final sentence or verdict is a big sureness and a progress for the internet freedom ..... and against some persons which want to make a lot of money only with the stupid written warnings (including fee) and admonish innocent people in a bad manner. This was in the past years a problem and is with this verdict finally solved and over. The lawyers made also very clear that this verdict have a naturally validation for other web-content like photos. The whole internet is   o n e    audience, Free, and not to share into parts. Great.-

3rd:   Only in Germany we have a big other problem with the so called "GEMA" and their sister organisation "GFL". These are the society for musical and other performance rights and they claim unfortunately --only in Germany -- that one single and same creation can be invoiced in the same moment "at once" not only twice but three times........
This means --only for citizens of Germany under the responsibility of GEMA/GFL-- the following:
- if you create a website with Linklists of webradio stations - no problem.
- if you create a website which do direct link to webplayers of radiostations - no problem.
- if you create a website and the contained links showing the stream-IP:  problem, money wanted !! 3rd-party Player or other intermediate website missing means > problem - only in Germany!!!!!  
Equal that the radiostation payed for the rights..... you German are the victim ..... your Stream-Link & then the result is ....your payment wanted.....  Please be warned to setup a direct-URL or an own radioplayer which contains stream URL's.... never do this, or a letter of this  'GFL' can incoming.
Break. 
Not a problem for the rest of the world. Germany is always and always "very special" with the authorities. This is well known.--
