At Radio and internet Newsletter, site scriveners Paul Maloney and Kurt Hanson publish a letter from legendary internet grump Mark Cuban, founder of broadcast.com.
It’s interesting reading. Cuban describes the deal between Yahoo (who bought Broadcast.com) and the RIAA as having been explicitly crafted to close down the indies. This is the deal that was used as a template for the stinkin’ no-good backstabbin’ lyin’ sorry excuse for a sack of potatoes “compromise” announced last week.
