A verbose way of saying, "piss off"...

Thank you CNET for acquiring mp3.com...

aaah, corporate world. who would have guessed that they would try to shut down the free, legal music? and who would ever have guessed that they would suceed?...

christ! i can't believe this! >.< it should seem more believable, but this is just a further violation of basic rights that small business owners/independent musicians should have access to. my heart goes out to all of the bands that have to frantically search for a new way to share their music with the world.

the world is scrambling for new ways to advertise and lock everyone into the world of corporate business. what happens to the person that wants to remain independent? isn't that what this country is founded on? grr.

Yeah, I just posted that on a few mailing lists, so that the musicians I know are aware. How are little indie artists who aren't signed yet going to get their musicut? Will we have to go back to the days of open college stations, the rare nightclub and pirate-style radio being the only way to promote music? This super-corpoate thing scares me...

Nah. If it's your music, you can legally share it on a P2P network such as KaZaA, Grokster, fileshare, bearshare, gnutella, etc. Just get the word out to your friends to find it on there instead of mp3.com. After that it's just a matter of time. I realize that this isn't necessarily as good as a centralized repository like mp3.com, but it is a start.
