Should iTunes have to pay royalties every time a 30 second sample is played? Seems that's what the music industry wants.

Aiden's new iPhone application was recently denied from the the iPhone App Store for "objectionable content." The band has written an open letter to Apple, which you can read below.
From AidenDear Apple,

What can I really say that Trent Reznor hasn't? "I want to fuck you like an animal?" Oh wait, he said that. "I am a big man and I have a big gun. Got me a big olí dick and I like to have fun, held it against your forehead, I'll make you suck it, maybe I'll put a hole in your head, you know, just for the fuck of it." Yeah, he said that, too, all on a record called The Downward Spiral. I have purchased that album five times in my life. I first got it on Cassette when it came out in 1994,...

Within its first 24 hours of being on sale in the iPhone app store, 8 people bought a program called "I Am Rich" for $1000. The best part? The application does absolutely nothing except display an animated red gem.

AdAge.com has posted an article about how bands are increasingly needing to utilize branding as a way to sustain their careers, including NASCAR-style advertising. Read it here.
From the Article"If the artist is 'next to' the [Nascar] demographic, yeah, [Nascar sponsorships] might make sense," Lawrence said. "It's not the most cost-effective way to sell records, but it's a way." Still, he said, bands will have to get used to embracing brands. "Artists have to start thinking about exposing themselves, because the big record companies aren't as apt to give away marketing dollars."

Four years ago, Pepsi ran a campaign that gave away 100 million songs through iTunes, helping to launch the digital music service into the limelight. Now, the Pepsi campaign is back, except this time, Amazon's MP3 Store will play distributor. The switch shows the industry's growing dissatisfaction with Apple.
