Association of Independent Music chairman Alison Wenham says that MP3 blogs linking to copyrighted material are a growing menace. “The fundamentals of copyright are pretty well breached by the ability to move material around seamlessly and undetectably,” she says. “Blogs, therefore, form a growing problem because they are not what one would strictly call or refer to as file-sharing. A growing number of individuals pop links onto their blogs either as a form of flattery or as information exchange. But when a few hundred or a few thousand people do that then the scale of the problem is far more similar than a file-sharing service.” However, it could be argued that the blogs have just as important a role in promoting artists – particularly those signed to the indie labels who are AIM members.
