Honest question: When a band is going to push a song to digital outlets (like Paramore releasing their new single last night), is it really not possible to coordinate the launch so that it goes up all across the world at the same time? The song being up on YouTube and Tumblr before it's even available in the states because someone from another country was able to buy it early and post it ... just doesn't make much sense to me. I feel like there should be a better way to do something like this.

There has been a lot of news regarding the biggest music and entertainment retail store in the UK, HMV, after they recently went into administration. The loss of this huge chain of stores would have a devastating effect on how music and film is purchased in the UK, let alone the personal effect on the thousands of employees, however a recent development has set things back in a more positive direction after Hilco UK acquired all of HMV's debts. Whilst not in the clear, this is a huge step forward in saving the last existing chain of music and movie retailers in the UK.
