HAVE U #playlisted #addedtolibrary #downloaded favourite tracks ?
– WELL THEY ARE #STILL NOT YOURS
☆IF U BUY a CD tape or vinyl it’s #tangible media – once u got it – U GOT IT – NOT SO WITH #DIGITAL –
The major online platforms can #swipe #anything from your #precious #music #library WITHOUT WARNING and it can happen for a number of reasons ..
We recently experienced the loss of #playlisted tracks by a significant EMERGING ARTIST from all major UK platforms. Any mention of the artist is now #greyedout and a message like “.. no longer available in your country or territory ” hits your screen.
If clothes were digital – a similar action would leave us all cold and naked in the street – maybe it’s time for music consumers to consider how safe their libraries actually are !!
