Boneheaded Music Industry Move of the Day

March 3, 2010 5:30:03.140

Truly a pile of awesome (via David Meerman Scott)

In a completely boneheaded move, the Japanese Society for Rights of Authors, Composers and Publishers (JASRAC) announced that they want to set up a system to charge people who tweet any part of song lyric.

Why yes, 140 characters promoting music is just bad. I'd ask if the music industry could get stupider, but I'm kind of afraid to find out...

Uh .... ANY WORD is a part of SOME song lyric. Unless you count "Louie, Louie", which has no words.
