  1. The Moby ‘gratis’ production music site ain’t exactly breaking news, and we had all hoped it would be something worth talking about.
    Sadly, the music he’s offering just isn’t that good. We added our thoughts on the matter back in July at our music licensing blog.
    In light of all the Radiohead news (our take is here), it would be great, in an industry already in sharp decline, if we could count on these established artists giving something of quality to the (starving) masses, but, at least in Moby’s case, we don’t think that happened. The jury is out on Radiohead for another few days. 🙂
