Let’s say you and your buddies don’t know how to play musical instruments and yet you decide to form a band. You open your garage door and play like there is no tomorrow. The police come and actually shut you down because it was so bad that all your neighbors have complained. Now imagine you have recorded that music and offer it immediately for-sale to anyone that wants to purchase a
copy of your horrid noise. Several days later you get a notice from Clear Channel saying you have to use their recoring service to legally sell that music immediately after each show.
Is this not the most ridiculous things you have ever heard. Well it seems Clear Channel is squashing popular bands that want to sell immediate recordings of concerts by using companies such as DiskLive to record the concerts they have just performed. If your willing to use Clear Channel then you are good to go. The audacity of doing this is shocking. [Techdirt]
