Artists Call Record Companies Pirates - Go Download Stuff Now

Ars Technica (a better site than Wired.com for reviewing the confluence of culture, law, politics and information technology) reports that corporate music companies in Canada were putting musicians songs on compilation albums without their permission or payment. Now the musicians of around 300,000 songs are suing the corporate ass of Canadian Recording Industry Association, including the Big Four (Warner Music Canada, Sony BMG Music Canada, EMI Music Canada, and Universal Music Canada). If Canadian corporations can make a mistake like this, maybe in the grand-daddy of entertainment industries, the musicians should look into whether all parts of their contracts have been enforced.

As an old client of Rainbow Centre, I heartily approve.
