Plans for a Nine Inch Nails fan remix site have had to be pulled, as Universal records had a legal panic that it might torpedo their case against Google, as Trent Reznor wearily explains:
While I am profoundly perturbed with this stance as content owners continue to stifle all innovation in the face of the digital revolution, it is consistent with what they have done in the past. So... we are challenged at the last second to find a way of bringing this idea to life without getting splashed by the urine as these media companies piss all over each other’s feet. We have a cool and innovative site ready to launch but we're currently scratching our heads as to how to proceed.
So, rather than embrace the chance to try and do something new, Universal have been forced to cling to the legally unworkable belief that the hosts are responsible for the use made of their site in the hope of getting a few quid out of Google. It's all a bit pathetic.
