Groovejet Drama (Illegal Downloading)

Recommended Posts

The digital restructuring of the music industry has never been without the odd glitch from time to time. Last week it came to our attention that a UK based digital music store, called Jetgroove was selling illegal downloads. After checking out their extensive catalogue of dance music and listening to many labelmanagers who clearly had not authorised sales through this company, we asked for an official reaction. This is what Jetgroove had to say:

"Dear X,

"This is our official reaction

"...The first part of the website - music, that is represented by record labels who already signed contracts with JetGroove. These tracks are available to be purchased and downloaded.

"Second part of the website - information about music that is placed on the website for promotion of independent record labels and artists. These 'tracks' could not be purchased or downloaded. However they could be put ON HOLD. As soon as this happens, the record label or artist to whom this track belongs is contacted with the offer of doing business with JetGroove. This greatly increases the exposure for many of the record labels.

"The line that JetGroove is going to continue to follow is: LEGAL SALES ONLY. The project was created to give independents a good chance of being known in the world, and earning money, not to make them suffer again as they do from P2P (file sharing) systems. And the last thing JetGroove planned to do is to violate rights of record labels, publishers, artists or authors.

"JetGroove officially states that if any record label or any artist is not interested to have one's tracks on www.jetgroove.com, one should inform JetGroove immediately and all the information JetGroove has about one's tracks will be taken off the website ASAP."

The big question from all of this, however, is how did JetGroove obtain all of the samples that are not officially for sale? They clearly did not do this with the authorisation of the labels involved, so did they themselves purchase these? And if so, do they realise that streaming music also needs permission from the artists and record labels? You decide...
