http://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2010/02/musicblogocide - interesting piece re: blogpocolypse!
when they started taking down blogs, a friend warned me about it. thankfully (?) I don't post mp3s on my personal blog so I think I'm in the clear but geez...it's disturbing to say the least.
I was doing bits for Prefix mag and they decided to not run anymore MP3's. It sorta ruins the flow of a singles review when the audience can't listen to the song, eh.
I think maybe you'll see blogs start posting YouTube links (sans video), sorta dropping the problem in their lap!
we can't run mp3s for that very reason. we get cease and desists even if the label give us tracks. sometimes from the person who sits a few desks over from the person who gave us the track to give away.
can't do podcast for the same reasons
