Current Climate

As I travel in Europe, it’s been astonishing to see the various content which can and cannot be accessed abroad. My Netflix account doesn’t work, and neither does Hulu. A number of videos have been disabled on YouTube. The content availability also changes as I move from Barcelona to Paris to London. In short, as a consumer, it’s frustrating. Shouldn’t we make sure that quality material can be accessed anywhere? As an attorney, I know there are complications, and things aren’t that easy. International treaties and legislative action may be needed. But it’s one reason we’re continuing to rethink music, and the business models and policy surrounding it. It’s time for the world to wake up to an ecosystem of global content. We are a global economy, and global solutions are required. Let’s rethink that.
