Be Afraid

23 Feb

Regardless of whether this rumor is true, this represents a loss of innocence for last.fm users. Realistically, anybody who used the service had to know in the back of their mind that sooner or later the RIAA would figure out a way to turn it against people, and when last.fm sold itself to CBS, the writing was on the wall. But now, even if this story turns out not to have legs, a lot of people are going to disable scrobbling on their less-than-legally-acquired albums.

Shame.
