I agree with the RIAA

Hell has not frozen over.
The RIAA is behind a compulsory licensing system for mobile phone ring tones, which would make it easier for everyone to adopt the technology. The alternative where royalties are negotiated song-by-song is being pushed by the Songwriters Guild among others.
Radio is another place where compulsory licensing is in effect, and this system was a great catalyst to the nascent radio technology.

Now, if only the music labels would come up with a way to purchase unrestricted MP3s at a reasonable cost… then Hell would really have frozen over!

Replay A/V and Sirius now working together again

Well, I’ve calmed down a bit since my last rant about the online Sirius tuner, mostly because we’ve figured out a way to get Replay A/V and Sirius working together again. And even better, you can now record Howard Stern!

If you’re a Replay A/V or Replay Radio user, download and install the update.┬áIf you’re not yet a customer, and want to be able to record Sirius shows automatically on your PC, give Replay A/V a try.

Also – in my new bliss, I’ve come up with a reason for the Captcha (those squiggly letters you need to reenter) which DOES make business sense. Perhaps they did this to prevent automated robots from stealing subscribers logins and listening for free.
