I just wanted to chime in to say I think that it's very respectable of the people at DI to send someone over here to clear this up. It shows a very pro-artist mindset. It's not cheap or easy offering a service like this, people have to get payed; but they also wanna help artists get heard. Mike deserves a beer.
Totally. I mean also. As far as the whole thread goes... getting paid was never really the motivation for it. Wasn't ever really the issue. Was the profit being made off of music intended for free listening. Thread has educated me a lot. If what DI.FM is doing is legal and on the books somehow. I have no problem with it. If not...? Hopefully it can be sorted out. I think the idea of putting up an easy to access playlist of everything being streamed is a good idea. If it was taken a step further and had a link to where the said album was hosted... for free... since all the music being played seems to be under CC. I'd feel even better about the whole situation.
It'd be a shame to see half of the music taken off the Chiptune channel. But it was something that I felt had to be brought to light. Hate to be the bad guy -__-.
