Oz songstress: Record label 2.0 abandoned me

I dont know this, but as far as I am aware Ditto just puts music on a few big digital stores. They do it quite reliably just like everyone else in that space does. Marketing is up to the artist or management.

Where does Ditto say that they will market?

Legal digital music is commercial suicide

Oh dear

I hear the thunder of legal goats hoofs approaching. And they will all be screaming stuff like "you must not show what the next track will be" and other asinine claims that are supposedly leaning your service towards music on demand. I work with this stuff every day and I know that will happen as soon as you are big enough to get on their radar. Ridiculous? of course, but that is what Mr Robertson is talking about. Innovation is a swearword in this biz and your station will be accused of "using our copyrighted work to promote adsales" and then sued into oblivion. Stay away from major label content if you want to live. Sounds like something from a gangster movie doesnt it? Well read "the Hit men" by Fredric Dannen and be enlightened.

BTW I love you station. I am listening to it as I write. Just dont be famous for it :)

Blind faith

Everyone involved should have a read of the Ben Elton book "Blind Faith" Its hilarious and pointed in its treatment of the current trashy craze to be visible.

Can 1,000 fans replace the music business?

Most budding musicians prefer fame over Fortune ....

If they could be arsed to do the real work, bizmomusic.com is one of the many pieces of good advice they could be reading. To many kids watch American idol and think everyone in the cue actually gets to play in front of the judges.

El Reg as US style moral guardian

Drunk driving is typically done by the demographic who would respond to that kind of keyword. Disappointing to see El Reg taking some weird American kind of moral stance on advertising?? Whats that all about?
