Company Based Music Spoofing
from the we-need-this-for-what-reason? dept
There have been plenty of stories about individuals and musicians who have put up fake versions of music to discourage file traders, but what about a company who's whole business plan is to wreck file trading by creating spoofs? Apparently, that's the plan of MediaDefender, and they've raised some venture capital to do so. They actually expect record companies to pay them to do this? It's good to see that venture capitalists are funding companies based on the idea that record labels need to come up with better and more expensive ways to piss off their own customers.
