Music Industry Accused Computer Magazines Of Encouraging Piracy

The CEO of publisher PC Mag has found himself under fire of not only the Recording Industry Association of America, but just about everyone in the entertainment industry. The reason seems to be that the worldwide largest recorded music leaders didn’t like the PC Mag’s report on alternatives to the file-sharing client LimeWire, calling it a “roadmap for continued music piracy.” The most interesting thing is that PC Mag even didn’t write the article – it was written by IDG’s PC World.

Today lots of people in the entertainment industry are expressing their discontent at the CEO of PC Mag publisher. A letter signed by seventeen music groups representing everyone from the Recording Industry Association of America to the Church Music Publishers Association tells them in no uncertain terms that the PC Mag’s employees have behaved very naughty indeed.

The letter was written in order to voice their deep disappointment with the PC Mag’s decision to publish an article by Chloe Albanesius called “LimeWire is Dead: What are the Alternatives?” and another one by Sarah Jacobsson Purewal, reporting that “LimeWire is Quietly Resurrected: It’s Baaack!”. The industry representatives are sure that both articles represent a clear roadmap for those willing to continue music piracy. The article offering alternatives to the client caused the accusations of PC Mag of encouraging users to steal further and make the industry lose thousands of jobs. Then, the troubles continued with the second article about the LimeWire Pirate Edition. Here the curious thing was that the second article entirely depended on the one published on TorrentFreak.com.

The letter emphasized that the worst part was providing a direct link to the new LimeWire edition. Confusingly, the PC Mag published only the first article, but had nothing to do with the second, because Sarah Jacobsson Purewal wrote for IDG’s PC World. However, PC Mag was blamed for all the industry’s woes, expressed in the letter.

IDG may breathe a sigh of relief today, blessing starts for escaping the wrath of the music industry. However, as like as not they may get their admonishment in the near future. Meanwhile, TorrentFreak, responsible for the original article, has also escaped from the wrath of the industry for saying that if you want to annoy it, it’s best to do it via proxy.

Thanks to TorrentFreak for providing the source of the article

No avatarjust goes to show that the __AA's will try to sue anything that moves to make more money. Maybe they can sue Disney, it has a nice Pirate show down in Florida.
