Let's work on getting everyone water and food before we start a movement to make Internet a "basic human right," eh??


I really don't understand the logic of the music industry. First the internet was evil, and should be shut down.

Now- they "want their own lane", and if they don't get it then innovation in the music industry will suffer?

Everybody is acting like this Googizon thing is law, hey it's not, and probably won't be (although everyone freaked out by it should hope it does, cause it will be better than what the gov't will do).

Like Justin said, can we worry about the bad things that are actually happening?

This is the future of music. ISP's and major brands/labels/music services working together to monetize something or at the very least provide a new more profitable model for us to work with in the future.

So does this example apply? I have noticed lately that the streaming of iTunes samples is deplorable, requiring at least 3 buffers to listen to a 20 second clip. If I pay them a premium will it then download without interruption?

If you want to hear high quality un-interrupted samples, take a look at the one I just started using powered by licensequote.com: http://web.mac.com/decouvrir/http%3A__web.mac.com_decouvrir_mamaloosemusic_license/License.html - Perhaps we can organize a mini-revolution?


Well, Justin, inasmuch free speech and the (virtual) right to assemble using the most democratic communications tool in history is implicated, I'd say nondiscrimination principles online are fairly important.
PS: enjoyed your Boing Boing interview.

Corey, you're not wrong aboutthe need tonics investment in content as a spur to a healthier music ecosystem, but ultimately it's about who gets to play. How's commercial radio treating ya?


Wow. iPhone randomly inserted the word "tonics" into that comment. Well, we could use that, too.

In case you wanted a more detailed look at this non-legally-binding proposal and what it might mean for musicians (were it to become public policy), we did a follow up at www.futureofmusic.org.
