| 1 Comment

Granted maybe the “server down” issues will finally be a thing of the past, but I also am concerned that suddenly the playlists of Last.FM users will be scrutinized for possible copyright violations. Not that I'm concerned for myself, but seems like it would put a damper on the sites usefulness, such as it is.

The company’s founders have confirmed that they are staying on board and the company will remain in London. co-founder Richard Jones said, “As you can imagine, we have been approached numerous times in the past few years from all the usual suspects regarding acquisitions and so on; CBS are one of the few companies who needed no explanation of what we are doing, and we were impressed at how progressive their plans are.”

1 Comment, I'll say. Nicolas and I were talking about how hard it is to know whose what is whose. There are so many mergers, it's maddening. I was sad iPhone is going with AT&T. My memory of times past of AT&T is pretty bad.

I figured there were problems with Net or computer yesterday. I am signing off after a bit.

Very relevant points, the copyright baloney. We are in 1984.
