James Blackshaw, wow

I'm on the Aquarius Records mailing list which mentions that James Blackshaw will play tonight at 6pm: 1055 Valencia Street, San Francisco, California 94110 U.S.A.

Aquarius described his music as "Appalachian Ragas", a phrase that made me want to spin a few songs, here's what I found:

Yes, there's a lot of great stuff to listen to in addition to the Song-a-day action (which is pretty hot right now).

Seeqpod sued by Warner Music

TechCrunch among others noted that seeqpod earned the legal attention of Warner Music. Claims include "Direct Copyright Infringement" "Contributory Copyright Infringement" "Vicarious Copyright Infringement" "Inducing Copyright Infringement" yeah, and a bunch of others. It's funny to me that the news story on their website today is about their earnings conference call, nothing about seeqpod.

The suit names names of WMG artists affected by seeqpod's induction of copyright infringement: Neil Young, Madonna, Greenday, Ramones, Twista, Busta Rymes, Black Sabbath, Zepplin, a-ha (?), The Doors, Chicago... Chicago? C'mon. Though I'll admit to having listened to the Ramones recently this just a really bad playlist.

In the words and spirit of Munger, Tolles, & Olson LLP (who's cheap-ass website also uses (Zombie) Cold Fusion (like good ole' GreacenZone)) here's a little on-demand digital performance for you:

I suspect there will be a bunch of mashed-up Web 2.x knots to untangle in the courts. Just wait till you can play a seeqpod playlist on your iphone: This'll piss everyone off. Let's watch this one.
