I don't really get SpitDigital. Is it like a Tunecore but more selective?

Hack Your Craft's insight:

My god, the intellectual arrogance of the Napster generation of tweens now grown. The question has always been for me, free music to do what exactly? Sit on your desktop and rot?. The narcissism around p2p sharing is absurd. The thing is I'm not mad at the idea of free music, but it is still presently an undertheorized in practice. Freedom doesn't mean it should be culturally cheapened. How do you combat the greedy excesses of the industry with the excesses of an individual. Anyway, my 2cents.

Napster the movie. A peer-to-peer leak would be the best release ever, woudn't it?
