Thrush & Bond
Thrush was Man from Uncle surely?
Limits are too low
I don't have an objection to throttling its the levels that the throttling are being set at.
Evenings cap kicks in at
Medium Package = 26 minutes of 2Mb downloads
Large Package = 13 minutes of 10Mb downloads
XL Package = 17 minutes of 20Mb downloads
under half an hour per night is excessive???
That last bit doesnt agree with the rest of the argument....
"Competition is a good thing - and yes, there need to be more models which make music accessible to everyone - and these systems are being explored already in subscription forms and more, but this isn't a post about the music industry or Alltunes.com - it's about the f*cking greed of a big bunch of lazy fat ass sloths who think everything should have a penguin motif on it, and be labelled 'free'. (i have nothing against linux, just the hive mind)"
Hmmm, They didn't see it for free, they just offered payment on what is basicly the sheet music model that the UK used to use.
As was pointed out above the rights managers refused to accept payment.
As I also pointed out above the rights managers have been caught repeatedly with their fingers in the till not correctly assigning payments back to the artists.
I agree music shouldn't be free (unless the artist chooses to give it away) but the current model is so corrupt it can’t be allowed to continue.
Unfortunately music publishing is now a big cartel, which is desperately trying to keep a stranglehold on dwindling income without asking why the income is dwindling.
Re: DRM Rant
You do know the surviving Beatles were blocking E-Sales of their songs because a "ligitimate" rights holder had done them out of £30 million pounds?
