F1 has had a long history of threatening internet sites and people using F1 or Formula 1 in just about any saying. For a current example, The Grand Prix Weekly podcast was known as F1 Weekly until they sent the lawyers after them.
F1 doesn't even have an HD television feed. For a sport that has spends so much money on technology, their coverage is just terrible.
I hope these new owners can move F1 in the right direction but they will have a tough time doing it.
Excuse me? Last time I checked, radio and television in the 70's was a lot different than the Internet today.
Among other things, the barrier to entry on the internet is negligible, while it was (and still is) very difficult to break into the music business regardless of how good the content is.
The CanCon rules had a significant effect for the better in my opinion but applying them to the Internet today would be a complete and utter disaster. I am absolutely sick of these people who think they should be able to regulate my access to content from other countries.
