Canadian Music Industry Calls For Internet Regulation, Website Blocking

  • All the music I listen to is 100% free to download.

    How do people usually find out about these recording artists who offer their own professional-quality music for download at no charge? Virtually none of the music played on FCC-licensed U.S. FM stations is free as in speech or free as in beer, and I doubt CRTC-licensed Canadian FM stations differ.

    Well... there you have it. People who are still limiting themselves to FM transmissions are missing out.

    For the rest of us, new music is promoted through social media and "if you listen to this, you might also like...." on streaming radio. Just using Google does amazingly well too.

    And then, of course, there's the fact that CBC Radio 2 picks up a lot of independent music, and provides links to the band's websites on their site, along with a historical playlist so you can find the songs/artists you listened to earlier in the day on FM, if you're into that.
