The truth about selling vinyl; independents react to Amazon’s 745% rise in record sales

The truth about selling vinyl; independents react to Amazon’s 745% rise in record sales | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

It’s been another strong week for Amazon. First they announce a 100% rise in vinyl sales on last year from their UK outpost Amazon.co.uk, then they unleash the headline-grabbing stat that US sales of physical records are up 745% since 2008. And yet, perhaps the greatest success of the last seven days has been cosmetic rather than economic – Amazon’s gains are being celebrated as positive for the music industry at large.

Here's How The Record Industry Stomps Out Startups It Hates

Here's How The Record Industry Stomps Out Startups It Hates | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

MP3tunes.com, a service which let users put their personal music collections online in a "locker," then made those songs available on any device, has declared bankruptcy.Founder Michael Robertson blames an expensive and time-consuming four-year legal battle with EMI Records.

EMI sued the company back in 2007, arguing that building this kind of service without licenses was copyright infringement.

Since then, Amazon and Google have launched very similar services with no license agreements. MP3tunes also won a pretty big legal judgment last summer, where a judge basically threw out most of EMI's case.
