Muxtape Shut Down By RIAA?

The above was the image displayed @ Muxtape yesterday. While they didn’t specify the “problem,” I think it’s safe to say that it has to do with payment & revenues. Muxtape isn’t alone because Pandora recently indicated that they might be pulling their streams as well.

I liked the idea of but never signed up for Muxtape and only casually scanned Pandora. While I know both were good tools for music discovery, I think one of the reasons why I didn’t adapt to it was because I knew a shutdown was imminent. Free don’t pay that well & the RIAA has been one to take their ball & go home if they don’t receive their cut.
