    Dear Mr. Borkowski,
    My advice: let’s put on hold litigation, time to pull together book guys and all politically connected artist and book writers and stretch to sanity “FAIR USE DOCTRINE”

    It will bring instant walls to music house and double the business in less that three years.

    There is no reason for free Shazam, similar tune ripper The Echo Nest or Google lyrics ID taking you to YouTube or any other pirate site.

    Please convert current anti-radio lobby effort to bring ASAP honest “fair use” environment!

    It will convert radio to conventional music stores and will deliver 100 billion dollar industry by 2020.
    Let’s do it.

    Hi, i have just found this new music shop on the web


    They have a shop and look to be reputable; does anyone have any information on them? They sell all the major brands and have a decent web page. I am looking to make a X-mas purchase from them
