    Yes. That's exactly how the last settlement played out, and now Apple Inc. can do anything music-related they want, including opening a record label called Apple.

    I have noticed it a lot more frequently on AI as of late, and couldn't hold my tongue any longer.



    Just my .02 worth.



    I think you mistake this site for a real news site. This is just a fan site, that tends to run a little more regurgitated trivia than other normal fan sites.

    My ideas was born of a little experience (I stress little). I owned an 1" 8 Track studio and acted as an agent in the 1970's as a part time business and recorded local bands. I even had a few minor successes (a number one in Ireland on some chart lol). However all my trips to meet with the London studios was eye opining to say the least. What ever week I had appointments to push a band they wanted to hear something exactly like what ever was number one that particular week. When 'that number one hit' was 'Radio killed the radio star' I gave up! If something like what I suggested was there then I would have gone full time for sure.



    Well now you can again. Apple's model is to use distributors like FilmBaby or TuneBaby to filter out things like GarageBand loops. You just have to set yourself up as one of these.
