CRASHING INTO A BUZZING ROOM AND YELLING 'NOW THE PARTY IS HERE: Rolling Stones belatedly realise how much their snooty attitude to downloads is costing them and scramble to catch up ("Rolling Stones finally make back catalogue available online"). What we love is this quote from RealNetworks:
RealNetworks says putting the Stones' music online has Shattered the traditional notion that the most popular music isn't available online through legal sites -- only through file-sharing services like KaZaA and Morpheus that, increasingly, are like playing Tumbling Dice with the recording industry and law enforcers. Though why anyone who hadn't been convinced by iTunes or MSN Music Club's 200,000 legal downloads would be any further convinced now that Jumping Jack Flash has finally joined them isn't clear to us in any way.
