Below you’ll find the top ten most read news stories on the CMU website in July 2015, topped by a report on some Canadian politicians falling foul of copyright law. Who could have guessed that taking a Nine Inch Nails t-shirt and writing your own name on it would be so problematic?

Before we get to the news, let’s just take a quick moment to look at our five most popular features last month. There was a column from Eddy Temple-Morris on his new stage at the Secret Garden Party festival, an episode of the CMU Podcast, an Approved piece on Frida Sundemo, an article from this year’s CMU @ TGE conference on pitching tracks to playlists and, in a meta move, the June edition of this top ten list.
