Around 1998 4ZZZ, 4MBS, and Family Radio started broadcasting from the one installation at Mt Coot-tha. Prior to this 4MBS and Family Radio had merely leased land beside 4ZZZ but then Brisbane City Council decided that having three transmission towers and huts in the one place was an eyesore and encouraged the three radio stations to share facilities. This resulted in the three radio stations developing a company called Broadcasting Park to negotiate with the Council. This company consisted of three shares, one owned by each member station.
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.
