Move Music To Bandcamp?


As i’ve mentioned before in another blog post over the past few years i’ve noticed dodgy websites listing our tracks and placing misleading ads right next to their links.

This has happened as a result of them using software to scrape links and various info from archive.org. I wouldn’t mind this if the following happened:

1. They removed the ads.
2. They adhered to the rules of attribution.
3. Archive.org did more to block scrapers.

So, i’m thinking of uploading all tracks to Bandcamp.com and deleting them from Archive.org. The tracks will still be available for free, so don’t worry about that side of things.

What do you think? Do you agree? Know an alternative?

SafeCreative Removes Licensing Option.


As you are probably aware, BDWRekordings.com have been placing ?Rights Info? buttons on track pages so that artists can advertise how people can obtain licenses for usages outwith the rules of the Creative Commons license applied to the tracks.

SafeCreative supplied a way for this to happen by offering a licensing option on their pages and people paid using Paypal.

Just recently SafeCreative have sent out emails to it?s members announcing that they are discontinuing certain services and one of them included the ?License This Track? option.

Our artists will now have to look for an alternative licensing option.
