Goodbye Muxtape?

After becoming an extremely popular community of online mixtapes, Muxtape has come to a screeching halt. The home page displays the following message, “Muxtape will be unavailable for a brief period while we sort out a problem with the RIAA.” The folks at Muxtape have stated that no artists or labels complained, so where’s the harm? Does the RIAA have the right to shutdown a site where music could only be listened to and not downloaded? Muxtape was and hopefully will remain to be an excellent destination for introduction to new artists and music.

  1. I saw a post in an online media newsletter earlier this week that Pandora.com is most likely also going to be shutting down in the near future… they sited not being able to make money as their reason for shutting down. 🙁
