2006 will be the year that the Music Industry continue their legal assault on the public; their new target will be web sites that post lyrics, guitar tabs or song scores.

But Music Publishers Association president Lauren Keiser was recently quoted as saying that simply fining or closing these sites was not enough, he wanted to see people thrown in jail.

Critics of the move claim that there are no legitimate alternatives for budding musicians who want to learn to play their favorite songs.

the good thing about the music industry being so anal is it'll push all the good music elsewhere. It'll keep all the good music on the streets, not in a barnes and noble or wal mart, and then serious musicians will really have to go out into the world and find that shit. Maybe it'll give budding musicians a new edge so they'll cut through the bullshit and make it happen. Unfortunately there's still the good artists who just happen to be making bucks on selling records, and I really don't know where I'm going with that... As a musician and music listener I feel that there is a sound forming in every genre that everyone is pushing so hard and acting as if it is so great, and yet it's crap. In techno dance music, they have this dancey plastic sound that's actually evolving. Scary. It's not even good, fun to dance to though, and they let it evolve because all the hipsters are going to go buy that record, and when the next one comes out, they'll buy that one too. All the music that is actually keeping the music in the music is everywhere but on the radios (for the most part). Music is alive; it has developed a fierce survival mode in order to ensure its survival, though it may not be a money maker. That's all I have to say.


Chopping beats since 1999.
