Amazon launches Kindle Worlds publishing platform for fan fiction, will pay royalties to writers and rights holders
Amazon’s taken a number of steps to bring different types of content to the Kindle Store, and it’s now venturing into an area that has a long history with the internet: fan fiction. The company’s today announced Kindle Worlds, a new publishing platform that promises to pay writers royalties for stories inspired by established works. Naturally, the original rights holder needs to be a willing participant as well, and they’ll also be paid a royalty for all fan fiction stories sold. So what are your options for now? For the launch, Amazon has partnered with Warner Bros. Television Group’s Alloy Entertainment to open up three of its series to fan fiction enthusiasts, giving you the chance to write stories set in the world of Gossip Girl, Pretty Little Liars or The Vampire Diaries. The company’s promising that additional licenses are on the way, but for now you can check out the finer details in the press release after the break and at the source link below.

Electronic Arts and Disney announced a multi-year agreement today that will see future Star Wars video games exclusively developed and published by EA. This news comes a little over a month after the house of mouse made the decision to stop internal development at LucasArts. EA’s developers scheduled to take on the Star Wars universe include DICE (Battlefield), Visceral (Dead Space) and BioWare, the latter of which will continue development of its already released Star Wars MMO (The Old Republic). The financial terms of the agreement have yet to be disclosed, but EA will create games for a “core gaming audience” while Disney will produce casual titles for mobile and social outlets. Now that the force is strong with EA, our fingers are crossed for a new installment in the KOTOR franchise.

Who says big business cannot be bros when it comes to hallmarks? Since Apple had no requirement for its Lightning connector to appear on “bike parts, slot devices or tachometers,” it buddied up with Harley Davidson to secure partial usage of the cycle maker’s IP for its new iDevice interface, according to recent information from the European hallmark office. That allowed it to use a name that’s sympatico with its Thunderbolt moniker, while most likely letting Harley davidson retain the rights for its heavier metal add-ons. Additionally, should Cook & co. run up against a mid-life crisis, a minimum of they’ll have quick relief on speed-dial.

Sky has actually bested its show and video-on-demand competitors by signing an offer with Warner Bros. for exclusive rights to its movies in the UK and Ireland. When the six-month cinema window has elapsed, each new flick (consisting of Guy of Steel and The Dark Knight Rises) will certainly remain Murdoch-only for a full year before showing up on LoveFilm and its kind. Meanwhile, back-catalog titles like The Lord of the Rings and The Matrix will certainly stay locked in the partnership’s walled yard for a confidential time period. Good news if you’re a Sky client, we expect, and not if you’re not.

Suffice it to state, Audi’s been garnering lots of press these past weeks for its e-tron cars. Hot on the heels of its current, R18 e-tron-led victory at the 24-hour Le Mans, the automaker has actually set a world-record for processing EVs at Germany’s Nürburgring. Using an all-electric R8 manufacturing model, driver Markus Winkelhock zipped around the 12.92-mile course with a lap time of 8:09.099. For comparison’s sake, the fastest lap by a gasoline-powered manufacturing automobile of about 7 minutes and 57 seconds is currently held by the Grumpert Apollo Sport– which just-so-happens to utilize an 700 hp (515 kW) Audi V8 electric motor. According to Audi, the R8 utilized is practically identical to what will be released to the public later on this year, featuring 2 electric powered motors that pump out 280kW of power and 820Nm of torque. That said, Autoblog indicates that its limiter was set to 250 miles per hour– when you can purchase one it’ll be set to top out at 200 mph. Hit up the press release after the break for all the information.

When we last checked in, Amazon was thought to finally be pushing for complete songs rights in its Cloud Drive and Cloud Player services. It could be a smooth operator at the negotiating table: following strategies to CNET keep that the leading four significant labels (a currently-independent EMI as well as Sony, Universal and Warner) have all signed deals that will let Amazon supply the same scan-and-match popular music downloads and streaming as Apple’s iTunes Match. The pacts might let Amazon offer access to every track a listener has without having to directly upload each track that wasn’t bought directly from Amazon MP3. Aside from closing a conspicuous gap, the promotion might end a entire bunch of acrimony from labels who were distressed that Amazon preferred a free-but-limited service over needing to charge anything. The on-line store hasn’t said anything formal yet (if at all), however any trademarks on the dotted line will leave Google Music as the odd male out.

Question by Deal Closer: How to force my parents/landlords to respect my rights as a tenant?
I recently transferred to an office near my parent’s home and, after discovering that they were at risk of defaulting on their mortgage, agreed to rent their basement for the very generous rate of $ 800/month instead of renting an apartment, in order to provide them with the capital necessary to avoid loosing their house.
Unfortunately, in the four months since I’ve moved in, my parents have insisted on showing even less respect for my personal space and property then they did while I lived there as a child*.
I’ve attempted to talk to them about this but, if I try to talk to my mom, she’ll start (fake) crying and then my father will threaten to knock me out for making my mom cry…If I try to talk to my father, he’ll dismiss everything I say with the claim “you’re living under my house (which I’m paying for) so you’ll have to live by my rules.”
When I informed them that their actions towards me had become intolerable and that I was going to move into an apartment (and take my monthly rent with me) if they continued to treat me that way, they called all my relatives and I’m now receiving calls from my relatives-including my grandmother and brother-informing me that I will be “disowned” if I “cause my parents to loose their house”.
On one hand I don’t want to alienate my entire family, but on the other, I don’t know how much longer I can tolerate my parents behavior…Any suggestions???
*Some of the things my parents have done in the four months I’ve live there include;
Most recently, my mom believed that she smelled “pot” in my room and had my father search my room by dumping the contents of all my draws on the floor-no pot was discovered and the contents of my draws were left on the floor, I’ve never used pot and suspect that what my mom smelled was a glue, called Zap a Gap, I was using to fix my shoe. This is what led to my threat to terminate my rent.
When my dad continued to experience cash flow issues after I started renting, he went through my mail, opened my paychecks, and then used the “evidence” he discovered to demand that I pay an even higher rent and accused me of being greedy. After I told him I was paying the amount he asked for and asked him to stop yelling, he began to follow me around an yell for another hour and a half.
Both my parents insist on entering my room at any time and for any reason-without knocking-despite the fact that they agreed not to do this when they asked if I would rent from them.
My mom insists in subjecting me to long lectures in which she criticizes virtually every aspect of my life. If I walk away, ask her to leave my room, or ask her to be quiet, she’ll start crying while lamenting the fact that she “raised such a rude boy”, my dad will then threaten to “knock me out” for “making my mom cry”.
Both my parents are ardent environmentalists and have begun demanding that I park my Jeep Cherokee somewhere other then in their driveway, despite agreeing to allow me to park there. Apparently they are “embarrassed” to have “an SUV” seen on their property.
Despite agreeing to allow me to use the refrigerator, my mom threw out all my food because she said the “free radicals” could “jump” from my non organic food to her organic food…I deducted the expense from my rent payment, angering both of them.
After all that, I’m regularly criticized for not wanting to do “family things” with them.

Tim Cook’s visit to China this week marks his first as Apple’s CEO, but what originally appeared to be a casual jaunt to Beijing with possible carrier meetings on the agenda, has turned out to be a carefully orchestrated visit, including appointments with top government officials to talk economic development and intellectual property rights. Xinhua, the country’s official press agency (and therefore not the most objective of sources), reported that Chinese Vice Premier Li Keqiang stated that the country will “strengthen intellectual property rights protection” and “pay more attention to caring for workers.” Typical of state-sponsored releases, the report failed to expand on either statement, but even if nothing comes of this particular meeting, Keqiang is in line to take over as Premier next year, making him a solid addition to Cook’s rolodex. There’s a Chinese-language video of the encounter waiting just past the break.
