If I hadn’t been preparing my defence I would currently be legally downloading Norwegian, copyrighted music for free from musikkonline.no. Dagbladet reminds me which bands and songs I might want, and kindly provides direct links.

It is, truly, a strange way of celebrating the 75th anniversary of TONO, the Norwegian institution that collects royalties for musicians and doles them out in the form of stipends and so on. Earlier this year TONO sued a band for making their own songs free online – no, I don’t understand the details, sorry, but Trond posted some explanatory links. Now TONO is making everything free for a week. But only through a particular shop.
