Artists unpaid. Thank MySpace & Imeem.

Reblogged story below. My comments after.

MySpace/Imeem Deal Leaves Thousands of Artists Unpaid | Epicenter | Wired.com: “

By Eliot Van Buskirk

“Independent artists who sold their music through imeem’s Snocap music storefronts on MySpace and other sites won’t be paid what’s owed even after MySpace Music’s acquisition of some — but not all — of imeem”

“Some artists have been owed money for more than a year, and the chance of them seeing any money now is, for all intents and purposes, zero, the source says.”

(Via Wired.)

This is absolutely unacceptable.

And another reason my pending big (for me) music project will not touch MySpace.

We shall see who gets angry over this.
