Re: “ASCAP Targets Farmers' Markets and House Venues

Most bands at farmer's markets are country, country and western, folk, and/or bluegrass........the simple solution is to have them perform songs that are in the public domain......there are thousands and thousands of songs in these categories that are fee free!! It took me less than 30 seconds to find a list of 2000...and the list of sites was endless.....I had a music store in the cradle of Bluegrass music...Franklin Co., VA......let me assure you that no one is going to ask for royalties on "The Little Rosewood Casket"...or "When My Blue Moon Turns to Gold Again" A little tongue in cheek there....but, seriously....go public domain.

Re: “How Fantastic Negrito Conquered NPR

What's up with NPR? Damn, two national NPR contest winning artist right here in Oaktown - check out Glynn Washington at Snap Judgement. Seems we continue to have the center of the universe for stepping up with fresh artistry - and it seems NPR is growing new and much needed wings.

Re: “ASCAP Targets Farmers' Markets and House Venues

As a performing artist are venues including house concerts exempt from paying royalties if I only use non copyrighted and unlicensed songs?
I never receive royalties from BMI ... Why should I do any action to help them?

Re: “Zoë Keating Fights YouTube to Control Her Music and Reputation

So discouraging that this new, creative, hipster version of corporate domination and greed looks just like every other dickish and dictatorial corporate manifestation of power-hungry facelessness. Behind that colorful and friendly facade are squads of young MBA hitmen acting just like their grandfathers' generation. Robber barons in fedoras and Hawaiian shirts are still robber barons, just more insidious.

Re: “Zoë Keating Fights YouTube to Control Her Music and Reputation

Wow...this article is an excellent write up that beautifully weaves together a David-v-Goliath tale that is chock full of stuff like business details, talented luminaries, possible corporate heavy handedness, introgue, and a desire to share art via an emerging platform and how that might possibly be quashed. Really fun read!

Re: “Apple Virus U2.0

"this collaboration stings most because it repurposes something Radiohead proved to be a liberating asset of the internet — free distribution — as a service of corporate marketing"

Gosh, what a surprise. Corporations appropriating the culture for their own benefit. What's next, profit-taking?!

It's how the system works. We create, they profit.

Re: “Apple Virus U2.0

I would still be pissed even if a band that i didn't absolutely despise suddenly appeared in my library. bach would be the exception, maybe. or p.j. harvey! ...but that would be even creepier because they'd know what i love deep down. the lesson here? it's hard to forget when you've found a maggot in your Apple.
