Musicians Back ‘Net Neutrality

RTN.jpgIf there’s one album you don’t want to grab off of a P2P server, this would be it.

Rock the Net, the nationwide coalition of musicians and labels that support net neutrality (841 bands, 177 labels and counting), are releasing an album to benefit their very worthy cause on July 29.

Wilco, Bright Eyes, DJ Spooky, They Might Be Giants, Aimee Mann and more have dontated tracks to the compilation, which will be released by indie Thirsty Ear Recordings.

Kind of ironic that musicians, who have seen their industry gutted by the Web, would band together to support this critical cause. It would be nice to see interactive marketers and advertisers, whose bread and butter depend on a freely accessible Internet, make their own brand of noise about the issue.
