Spanish Indie Labels To Sue The Gov't For Not Stopping File Sharing

,----[ Quote ]
| This is pretty disappointing. Last year, I 
| actually bought a bunch of CDs (yes, physical 
| CDs) from an indie label in Spain that I only 
| heard about after a friend sent me some MP3s 
| suggesting I might like a couple of the bands 
| on the label. After checking out their 
| websites (and being able to listen to some of 
| the songs) I ended up ordering a bunch of CDs 
| from the label. Just last week, I bought two 
| more albums (downloads, via CDBaby) from the 
| same label. Yet, according to these labels 
| (and I can't tell if the label whose CDs I 
| purchased is part of the lawsuit), they would 
| have been better off suing my friend. Indie 
| labels should be leading the way here: 
| focusing on giving fans real reasons to buy, 
| rather than suing the government for not 
| putting up more protectionist barriers to 
| pretend it can hold back what the technology 
| allows.
