1) Will the 2 majors own the rights to any schmuk who
posts their tune on mp3.com?
Even though I'm generally cynical about such things, the answer would
seem to be "no." From their Q&A page
(http://progress.mp3.com/?cp=progress_link2): "Yes, MP3.com has
reached groundbreaking agreements with the Warner Music Group and BMG
Entertainment to cover the recordings they own." The whole flap over
the MyMP3.com thing seems to be mainly about mp3 copies of tunes in
the majors' catalogs--the unsigned stuff, not in the catalogs,
shouldn't be covered by any agreement. It'd sure suck if I was wrong
on this, though.
2) In the Albini article, what does he mean by points?
Percentage points. Not sure if they're calculated net or gross; I'd
guess gross on the label side and net on the artist side--there goes
the cynicism again....
