4ZZZ launched its glorious tradition of counting down listeners' 100 favourite songs on New Year's Day 1977. More than 10 years later, 2JJJ in Sydney (which employed many ex-Zed staff) began conducting its own Hot 100. Because 4ZZZ held the rights to the name Hot 100, there was a little bit of legal biffo when TripleJ became a national broadcaster, so they changed the name of their survey to the "Hottest 100".
Cat engages in copyright dispute with EMI
Following a video being posted online of Phantom engaged in an act of purring, YouTube flagged the video as potentially stolen, the video was locked, and no money paid to its owner.
The automatic system which flagged Phantom’s video is said to be similar to that used by YouTube to spot pornographic videos and it flagged Phantom’s purr as sound owned by EMI Recording and PRS.
Phantom’s human companion, who goes by the online name ‘Digihaven’, and who was responsible for posting the one hour loop of Phantom engaged in purring filed a dispute, and EMI has now lifted its claim to the video.
