Koreans Facing Same Music Sharing Issues

from the sounds-familiar dept

It seems that it isn’t just the US with a stupid recording industry association forcing the closure of file trading systems that consumers use to find new music. Over in Korea, the Recording Industry Association of Korea is forcing a file sharing system to close, pissing off its users – who are threatening to boycott album buying in response. The users of the site say that the downturn in music buying isn’t because people are sharing music, but because the Korean music industry releases albums based on the musicians’ looks, and not their talent.
