Only the music industry can thwart this digital activism,
Or alternatively the punters who actually buy the competing tracks in question.
Politically motivated hacking crew TeaMp0isoN has teamed up with Anonymous in an attempt to storm the music charts. The hacktivists fancy themselves as music moguls with plans to release a song by an unspecified artist that they are nonetheless convinced is bound to storm the charts. Proceeds of the unknown song – due to …
"radio stations will by law, have to play it. Will they thwart the law to continue making sheep out of the people? "
Radio playlists are no governed by law. These people have a very distorted view of the world. I wish they would grow up and start taking drugs like the rest of us. I won't buy it.
Lest us forget the irony of them claiming the law should play their party tune, when they are willing to break the law. Have to love the cheek of it.
Paris, because she would not be seen dead with a bunch of pubescent basement dwellers, but she may be content to sell them some slinky lingerie and television series on DVD.
"The beat has been sorted and the artist is writing the song as we speak....."
And they're planning to blame the music industry if it proves as popular as curried shit flavour ice-cream????
Hey guys, save yourselves some effort and just go back to the more usual position of just blaming the music industry for everything anyway.
That's not necessarily true. In the Netherlands, a group of people produced a purposely shitty track, called "I wanna be a one day fly". The idea was that through marketing, this would become number one for one week in the Top 40 hitlists.
It worked, but their marketing was so good that it stayed there for several weeks. You couldn't actually call it music and nobody bought it.
Wasn't that the point? Anonymous holds no opinion and all opinions. They are always both for and against everything. They both do everything and do nothing. They cannot be fractured, for they are the essence of fracture. They are, by their own definition ("We are Leigon") the essence of mob-mentality... only they are not just one mob, but many.
Now here is a song that I would download from the torrents, I won't listen to it because I'm not interested in it and it's inconceivable that I would have bought it, so they won't have lost anything and have no right to be annoyed. Anyway, they'll make more money from gigging and that money goes straight to the artist.
Or so their argument goes, doesn't it?
And now we're down to blackmail and extortion. How surprising indeed; "do what we say, or else".
The benefits go to charity eh? Let me guess; we'll only have to take their word for it; "or else".
Can we now stop giving these kiddies a platform? I mean; a real artist will also need to convince people to play their song on their own...
Or is this also "different" now; media needs to cover this "or else"...
Yeah, /very/ reliable looking bunch indeed.
