Wired News: Record Label Sings New Tune

“Record labels have long been accused of stealing musicians’ copyrights as soon as the ink is dry on the contract. Now, one small independent label in Great Britain is doing the opposite: It’s giving the rights to the artists—and anyone else who wants to use the music, too.

Loca Records wants to foster experimentation and freedom in music by building a stable of free music which can be shared, remixed and manipulated by anyone. Songs are not locked by digital rights management technology.”

Open Source Music, somehow I can’t see the major labels following suit…

Thats because they would only follow suit if it means they get billions in profit.

Wow…music from some euro-hippie I’ve never heard of becoming open-source? Wow. I am overcome with joy.

You guys are so very pessimistic.  Has anyone actually gone to the site?  This ‘euro-hippie’ is a very cool and personable guy.  I know because I purchased a copy of Maz Plant Out from him and he responded with three very fast a friendly emails.  The music is incredible and I think the model is something our ridiculously profit-centred world needs direly.
