Musicians Who Support Grokster Told They've Been Used
from the hmm dept
Earlier this week, we wrote about how a number of musicians have filed a brief with the Supreme Court supporting Grokster, and talking about how file sharing is a big opportunity. As you might imagine, this has upset many people in the industry who seem to believe (once again) that there can be no possible business model associated with free file sharing. In fact, one group seems to imply that these musicians have been brainwashed, but that with time, they can be led back to a path of righteousness.

P2P and the Industry
Given that the fundamental model for a record deal is essentially sharecropping, it’s no wonder that record companies are doing all they can to keep the artists “down on the farm.” Imagine their comments as coming from old Southern white guys talking about their black sharecroppers and they become much easier to understand.

There ARE alternatives, support them, create content, whatever.
