Thanks for placating me, Raz. As you can easily see I’m pretty hyper-sensitive about this topic. It’s because I offer free hosting of promotional recordings for a few electronic musicians in Florida, in the hopes that it will help them “follow their dreams” with their art. It’s at the request of the artists, there is no finance involved, and there are no licensing infringements of any kind because the work is all original.
I just feel strongly about distancing myself from the rat’s nest of legalities regarding commercial music. The whole reason we produce and listen to independent music is that we think mainstream pop pabulum is homogenizing our society, and discouraging creative ways of thinking.
Have said that, I apologize for being so vocal in a public forum. It was rude and stuff.
