MySpace + Gracenote = Copyright Protection


To see what I mean, let's read it from Andrew McLester (via

I recently came out of the studio having recorded 4 original songs that were entirely written by me and a friend. I created a new page ( to showcase our work and after downloading our songs one of the main pieces (Festival Of The Seagoat) I recieved a "copyright infringement" notice next to the song on the edit page and consequently all the songs on my page are frozen. Frustrating to say the least! I've emailed support numerous times with no response....I cannot fathom how Gracenote technology can at all be accurate, as evidenced by this caper, and in the meantime I'm stuck with a frozen page and a piece of software telling me that my hardfought creative output is not mine after all! Thanks for reading and in advance for any help!
