Record Labels Try To Block File Sharing Business Model

from the wait-a-second... dept

Funny how this works. On the one hand, you have record labels insisting that there simply can’t be any business models that involve free music. Then, when a file sharing company comes up with a perfectly reasonable business model, involving sharing advertising revenue from the file sharing app with record labels, the big record labels sue to stop it. Well, of course there won’t be any business models if you don’t let them exist.
