RIAA Press Release: RIAA, NMPA Reach Settlement With Audiogalaxy.com. ‘The settlement reached would allow Audiogalaxy to operate a “filter-in” system, which requires that for any music available, the songwriter, music publisher, and/or recording company must first consent to the use and sharing of the work. The other key provision of the agreement is for Audiogalaxy to pay the music publishers and recording industry a substantial sum based on Audiogalaxy’s assets and interest in resolving this case quickly.’ Bleh.

Blanu and I agree, AudioGalaxy was the best way to get music, ever. Sad, sad, sad.
