Katherine Coble talks about ASCAP going after bloggers:
I read yesterday on Twitter that ASCAP is thinking about going after bloggers who embed videos in their posts. So guess what I’m gonna stop doing? Yep.The music industry, like so many in the Legacy Media, is getting desperate.
I know that’s not really feel-goody of me. But I guess since I wasn’t a regular with the “post a video of a happy song on Friday” thing that I won’t be missed. But I did want to let other bloggers know that there might be a danger in the continued practice.
I like what Aunt B said:
I honestly don’t understand how setting yourself up as the enemy of people who love your art form helps you preserve and promote that art form.
I hear they might retain Lars Ulrich as an advisor.
