First Monday [1] has a Special issue out on Music and the Internet [2] (Volume 10, Number 7 — 4 July 2005). Most of the articles have been published previously, but this is the first time all of these articles have been gathered in one place before.

I plan on printing a few out and reading them — maybe I’ll highlight my favorites . . .

Here’s the overview:

"The relationship between music and the Internet is a site of perceived possibility and volatility. Stories of music theft, illegal downloads, unresolved court cases, and anti-piracy technologies, are now prominent. Conversely, stories about the creation of real-time music composition, music’s increasing accessibility, the regeneration of music collecting, and the development of virtual music communities have also become prominent. This special issue brings together a fascinating suite of papers that originally appeared in First Monday on music’s evolving relationship with the Internet."
