Let me start with this. I don’t own a single Rolling Stones’ CD/LP/cassette/DVD, and I don’t really want to.
What the hell is the exclusive selling rights thing?
I do shop at Best Buy, but for computer components. I almost never buy music there. Realistically, their selection sucks (read as “If it isn’t going platinum, BB isn’t likely to carry it”)
But this could mean that we the people can’t get new music for 3-4months, except for Best Buy.
So this isn’t an isolated thing for Best Buy. Well, Best Buy, you can kiss the small part of my music purchases that you do get good bye.
Per the link, several stores and chains are considering, or have already, removing the Rolling Stones material from their stores. Good for them. I hope that catches on. Send the message to the artists/recording companies that we don’t like the shitty deal they are trying to give us.
