AllOfMp3.com might shut down in 2007

BUT.. there is always a “but” when it comes to the original genie. What am I saying? Well I was looking into this more indepth this evening. It’s quite apparent that even though you can put the genie in the bottle for a few seconds, once it was let out all those years ago by Napster, it’s out. Face the music, AllOfMp3.com might go away, but…
You can’t stop the music. Ever. Get it through your head polititians, world leaders, RIAA, record companies, etc… The genie was let loose. With that being said, I hope you all have tried these other great music sites.
Then there is eMusic.com – 25 free downloads to join/start!
Here is one that is about to launch soon – IndieZone - so as I said — you can take the genie out, but you can’t put the genie back in for very long.
I want to state that I am in NO way endorsing ripping off the artists from making the money that they so rightly deserve! — the record companies of the world already take care of that! Being a musician myself, I would love the artists to all get paid for their hard work and creations. It is the music industry (ie- the record companies) that need to be honest and straight up, and PAY the artists what they are due for their work and creations.
Technically Speaking, as the article where I originally found this item said – and I quote – “The government will be expected to begin complying by June 1, 2007.” — that is what I love about government sometimes. By the time June 2007 rolls around, you can burn off a whole bunch of music. When it comes time for the site to “legally” pull the plug – you do what we all did – open up another bottle and let out another genie!
