On Tuesday, December 13th pimpninja.org, along with (hopefully lots of) other web sites will be joining in on a protest agains the strongarming by record labels such as EMI and Warner of mashup artists. The noncommercial mashup album American Edit, which combines Green Day with all sorts of other artists and samples, has been subjected to a legal nastygram and a takedown order from the lawyers of Green Day’s label, Warner Music.
So, just like on Gray Tuesday, people are demonstrating back. Starting at midnight on Tuesday, December 13th 2005 and ending 24 hours later, you will be able to get Dean Gray’s mashup album American Edit right here. If you want to join in on Dean Gray Tuesday, go check out the details at http://gray.alt.fm/. If not, stop by on the 13th and pick up the album.
