Digital Download Day

Digital Download Day: I just got phoned up for a comment on this by M*tro – it was the first I’d heard of it (good work PR people). This is “the future of music” according to the site, i.e. “the present of music” – kazaa.com is bigger than any Amazon site in Europe currently, and by the record company’s own downloading-is-theft logic this is like a jeweller’s shop having a special “Robbery Day”. And if you don’t think downloading is theft you’re probably doing it anyway: it’s hard to see who a gesture like this benefits.
