Haha. I should have read the BBC article first. I hope I am. I was curious because i've never heard of that website before. From the looks of it, they are going shut them all one by one. Next will be other websites that many people don't even know about. Piratebay and other websites like them are making their websites downloadable, so people can just upload it again if it ever goes down, other websites are doing the same, they can't stop the users from keeping the internet they know. It's sad because the music industry doesn't know that many artists these days use the internet to pursue their fame and profession. The internet is so diverse that they can target a specific market, if you are a good performer and a lot of people like you and share your music with their friends the more views and downloads you will get. These days there is no need for the music industries middlemen. They do more harm to the artist than anybody. It's not hurting the young performers career, its hurting his BOSS career.
