"Things You Wouldn't Know If We Didn't Blog Intermittently."
Except music producers/studios/distributors have been stealing the IP of the talent since the dawn of music contracts. So the suggestion, even as a joke, that the end user is responsible for the loss of the music video tv outlet is disingenuous at best. People who never pay for the music they download from the original talent or their distributor are thieves, agreed. But people who share music they bought with their friends and others? That's not stealing. And for music copyright holders, who are usually NOT the talent, to try to monetize that sharing stream by sticking their fingers into that stream, now we're talking stealing. Unmoderated capitalism strikes again. --A.
