AIM on the case

Post by claudek » Mon Oct 11, 2004 11:10 am

FYI:


AIM CONSIDER WHAT ACTION TO TAKE AGAINST JETGROOVE
The Association of Independent Music is considering action against a Russian
owned website which claims to have been set up to provide a legal platform
where music fans can buy underground dance music as MP3s, but which some are
questioning about its own business practices.

The owners of the website, http://www.jetgroove.com, apparently contacted
AIM earlier this year with a view to licencing the rights to sell tracks
from some of its members' rosters via a new download platform. AIM decided
to hold back on making any licencing decision until a promised closed-access
beta site was available for testing.

But the closed access beta site never materialised and the company went live
last week boasting an impressive collection of dance music for download. But
some labels are claiming their music has been made available via the service
without their permission, meaning JetGroove are making a profit on tracks
without having set up any system for paying the label or artists who made
them.

Meanwhile other artists are listed as being part of the platform, but when
consumers go through the purchasing process they are informed their music is
not available. This is, however, after music fans have been invited to pay a
$20 subscription to access the service.

A spokesman for AIM told reporters on Friday: "We are urgently trying to get
in touch with JetGroove. They are advertising under false pretences."

Explaining why they have listed tracks that are not, as yet, actually
available a spokesman for JetGroove has told affected labels: "The
experience of showing your music on our website without distributing is
aimed to draw your attention to us, with the further goal to make contacts
with you on friendly terms with a perspective of mutually beneficial
partnership."
