Here we go again. Technology is like the proverbial horse out of the barn. Mac sites sharing music downloaded from the iTunes Music Store have the music industry in a tizzy.
“It sounds as if it is a hole in the security that needs to be closed,” Cary Ramos, an attorney for the National Music Publishers Assn., said last week. “I don’t know what Apple can do to achieve that, but I would certainly hope that they would take steps immediately to address this issue.”
Guides on how to share are online and sites like iCommune, SpyMac, and iTunes Tracker are proliferating daily.
Apple, by the way, says it’s music store has now recorded over 2 million downloads.
