Google Shuts Down MP3 Blogs

2010-02-13 by Skimaskcheck | 53 Comments
Six popular music blogs have been deleted by Google following claims they have violated copyright law. The blogs in question are Pop Tarts, Masala, I Rock Cleveland, To Die By Your Side, It's a Rap and Living Ears.

Hosted by Google's Blogger and Blogspot services, the sites received notification that their mass of archives were wiped from the Internet only after it had happened, resulting in what some critics have called "Musicblogocide 2010."

The blogs' owners have responded, stating that the material they have posted was legitimate, that they were sent the material by record labels and artists themselves.

Bill Lipold, owner of I Rock Cleveland explained: "I assure you that everything I've posted for the past two years, has either been provided by a promotional company, came directly from the record label, or came directly from the artist".

Just because google shuts down 6 really popular blogs doesn't mean there is going to be a massacre or anything.

It's only mp3 blogs, not off-site music hosting blogs. No big deal.

It's SIC, that's what they are actually calling it. I guess they've misspelled a made up word haha

True, but hopefully it isn't paving the way for them to start cracking down on off-site blogs too.

seriously use torrents its 2010

torrents smell funny

if you just google the album name then 'blogspot' you pretty much always get something from somewhere, even multiple options. so shutting down a few of the bigger ones won't really make a difference if you're after a specific thing.

either way slays for days is next zomg
