More People Trading Music Online Than Ever Before

from the go-music-traders-go... dept

Ah, so the music industry thought they could stop online music trading by killing Napster. Turns out that more people than ever used Napster are now using any one of the variety of other music trading services out there – suggesting that (as many people predicted) this is just a bad game of “whack-a-mole” for the recording industry. The industry, of course, refuses to listen to reason (the reason being that these free music trading apps are going to stay, and the best way to deal with them is to figure out a way to work with them) and insists they can, and will, shut every one of these sites down – one by one. I can’t wait until the music industry starts trying to put consumers in jail. Won’t it be great when they arrest the teeny bopper girls for trading the latest Britney Spears song with each other?
