Alex (545828) writes "From the Creative Commons blog:

For some time CC has been thinking about how to take ccMixter to the next level and looking for just the right entity to do that. ... Now, we are very happy to announce that ccMixter will henceforth be run by ArtisTech Media The longstanding participation of Emily (known as Snowflake on ccMixter) and others in the ArtisTech team in the community was a huge plus and adding to the team's great mix of business, music, and technology experience, and their great spirit and respectfulness. So CC is really excited about this transition. We believe that in ArtisTech Media we've found just the right entity to take ccMixter to the next level, but only with maximum respect for the community and adherence to the forms of openness that have enabled the site and community so far.

ArtisTech also operates the independent music site tunetrack.net"

+ - Major label music in MP3 format scoops Apple

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Michael Robertson seems to have scooped Steve Job by launching a service selling albums of major label music in MP3 format at http://www.anywherecd.com/ . Albums are 9.95+ and all tracks are instantly loaded into a permanent locker without DRM so they can streamed, downloaded and there's a utility which will auto-load directly into iTunes for Mac and Win. Maybe the labels want real competition for iTunes? All the details are at: http://michaelrobertson.com/"
It's funny.  Laugh.

The ads are quite funny, so I offered to host them on my webserver. That was 7 years ago. They were basically forgotten about except when I occasionally looked at my web statistics and saw that they were the most popular pages on my webserver. As many as 10 people a month would actually view them. Well, today I got a certified letter from a lawyer representing Gene & Jude's claiming I've damaged their company and demanding that I take them down. Now, I can understand their point and if Gene or Jude would have called me and said, "Hey, I don't like those so much, could you take them down?" I would have in a heartbeat. Now that they've called their lawyer, my question is, what can I do at the very least to postpone taking them down or, better yet, keep them up?"

More info available on Michael Robertson's blog. Given Michael's recent response to Steve Job's 'Thoughs on Music' it will be interesting to see what the founder of mp3.com has in store for the industry this time."

Make headway at work. Continue to let things deteriorate at home.
