On 14 December 1988, 4ZZZ was taken off air and forcibly evicted from its UQ premises by the then student union executive, headed by one Victoria Brazil. The move prompted many previously apolitical students to take a firm stand against the move and to rally support for the station. While Zed was not to return to the premises its' volunteers had helped hand-build, unprecedented community support saw the station live to fight another day.
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.
