Excellent legal result that narrows the ability of the music industry to tax new technology. People will pay for value, so it's time for these folk to create value instead of clinging to their outdated concept of their market.

"Listening to the "special interests" who worry about freedom of speech and breaking the Internet? Well, that makes you just as much a criminal as they are." -- Don Henley of The Eagles really does need to think more deeply about this and recognise that the 20 century's music business winners are the problem, not the solution.

I'd really not considered the money involved in official video uploads to YouTube, but it's clearly significant. As this article explains, when you provide a convenient legal way for fans to get their music, they use it. All that hatred-of-fans stuff by the RIAA etc is incredibly stupid.

Fairport are still going strong four decades on, and this new studio album is pretty good, with strong tracks written by Chris Leslie and Ralph McTell and other good stuff too. Makes me want to go to Cropredy again...

I was kindly sent a copy of this report, and would warmly recommend it. The opening article, which is the subject of Cory's item here, is full of discoveries (or at very least full of research-based support for the things I already believed).

The free tracks on Amazon UK have been pretty good this week - first the Columbia sampler, now a good track from REM.

This is a phenomenal sampler that Amazon just posted for free download by UK customers. Foo Fighters, Manic Street Preachers, Lissie, Kings of Leon, Ting Tings. Far better than the usual freebies!

Give this UK-based online music site a try (assuming you can - the usual music industry geographic restriction nonsense applies). It lets you listen to whatever you want just like Spotify does, but without the subscriptions and restrictions. The music is cheap too and there are regular special offers - try entering code "20X20" to get all tracks for 20p each for the next 20 hours, for example. Note: This code gives me a music credit if you sign up, but I'd recommend the site even if it didn't :-)

Just found the motherlode of UK Amazon MP3 free downloads - seems there are a large number of large sampler albums for "TuneCore" on there. Busy downloading them, there has to be something good in there somewhere :-)

Of interest mainly to UK readers, there's a campaign in progress to rig the pop charts again this Christmas and once again disrupt the crass self-enrichment of the modern pop svengalis. They were so full of self-righteous indignation last year they missed the whole point, accusing rage Against The Machine instead of seeing how the campaign was critical of their formulaic exploitation of the TV-drugged masses. So this year the Christmas Number One is John Cage's 4' 33" - let's vote for a Silent Night this year!
