stop! and stop!
Please note: MP3s are only kept online for a short time, and if this entry is from more than a couple of weeks ago, the music probably won't be available to download any more.
We received a Cease And Desist this afternoon, for something that we posted, but I don't yet know what. I'm investigating. All mp3s are gone in the mean time.
Thanks for your patience.Posted by Sean at June 27, 2005 6:11 PM
Wow, that blows. I hope you guys don't get in trouble.Posted by Sam at June 27, 2005 6:30 PM
Hope everything's okay with you guys. This site's turned a lot of people on to a lot of great music, and is still the best mp3 blog on the net.
Good luck getting your asses back here.Posted by Shaun at June 27, 2005 6:58 PM
And stop some more, you--you--non-stoping things.
About the reason for the C+D: here's 100 for the Tom Tom Club. Where are the odds posted?
Still ... it sucks. Get back up! Dust yourselves off! Continue stunning us with brilliant music.Posted by Tuwa at June 27, 2005 7:43 PM
Fifty bucks says the White Stripes. Actually, no, it's probably one of the RIAA's address harvesting bots making the rounds. That would explain the vagueness.Posted by Ian at June 27, 2005 8:15 PM
oh...hope it's nothing...
good luck, keep us posted.Posted by guanoboy at June 27, 2005 9:06 PM
yikes. i hope it works out. we're pulling for you guys.Posted by mr g at June 27, 2005 10:51 PM
Oh man, I hope everything turns out okay. And with the Supreme Court setting precidence in regards to file sharing... well, we'll just have to wait and see how everything turns out.Posted by brooks at June 28, 2005 2:02 AM
How can they tell you to 'cease and desist', yet not tell you the specifics of what you should 'cease to desist' doing? Is there something I'm missing?Posted by Ron Atkinson at June 28, 2005 8:57 AM
I hope it'll soon be settled ...Posted by garrincha at June 28, 2005 11:16 AM
Wow, that really stinks. The major labels have engines and agents, not just the RIAA, which is how The Man found my little corner of the world. Keep us posted, we care!Posted by john at June 28, 2005 11:15 PM
Thanks for all your support. And don't assume it's the RIAA (although it may be)... smaller labels have lawyers, too.Posted by Sean at June 29, 2005 3:01 AM
