In case you missed it, here’s a quick round up of other Music-related news from the weekend:
• Apple renews contracts for 99 cent song downloads: Apple announced Monday that they have renewed contracts with the four largest record companies to sell songs through its iTunes digital store at 99 cents each;
• Allman Brothers Band and Cheap Trick sue Sony,
claiming they are getting ripped off on downloads (How can the labels claim "breakage" of downloads as if they were physical
records or CDs? What weasels!);
• The Canadian Music Creators Coalition warns the RIAA that "Suing Our Fans is Destructive";
• Measured in cost per minute,
compact discs are not a good value;
• The Consumer Electronics Association finds its voice and finally asks, Who Are You Calling "Pirate"?;
• Finally, this
blog covers all the RIAA’s lawsuits;
Some of this might be amusing, if it wasn’t so sad . . .
Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
