  1. Oh great. Another anti-artist stance.
    Come on, everyone. Can the music industry be any dumber giving away music.

  2. yes, they could try to prevent new bands from getting any air-play and stopping people listening to stuff online, they would not otherwise have heard about. its not anti-artists, its anti-cry-baby. if the music is good, people will buy it, its a fact that is proven time and time again! but dumbass record companies and people like you just dont want to listen!

  3. the genie is out of the bottle…why do the powers that be really think they can stop it?
    I suppose they know they cant and are just squeezing the last bit of control they have for the time being.
