Promotions Coordinator of respected Indie label Yep Roc Records.
What is your company’s position on mp3 downloads?

company not only supports, but offers both free and for sale mp3 downloads in
house. We believe that mp3s are changing the way music is heard. It used to be

radio. However, now things have changed since the internet has come along and

as well as everyone else. It will soon become the future for the industry.
