Warner Music Misses the Beat

Wired has a good look at the upcoming lawsuit against the music-search site Seeqpod

“Even though it’s just one company, the stakes are high. The future of search itself could be in jeopardy, because Warner Music Group’s suit attacks a key provision of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act that, broadly speaking, allows search engines to link to anything on the net.

But for the music fans who have embraced SeeqPod since its debut in September 2006, it’s another instance of the labels clamping down on a cool new way to tune in online.”

At the risk of sounding redundant, this is more proof that the major labels simply do not grasp the way the world has shifted and will likely go the way of the dinosaurs before too long.
