Muxtape was a fantastic resource for music lovers and fans of the now declining art of the mixtape. It enabled users to upload their own mixes for other users listening pleasure. Cue the RIAA; they always have their glass up against the door. Any site getting major traffic that is giving music away for free, whether it be music people “own” or not, is going to get shut down these days. Fact is, they keep shutting down site after site that actually propel the industry. The general public is much more knowledgeable about various music ever since Napster, which would have otherwise been unknown without our cosy Internet portal. One by one these sites are dropping like flies; it’s quite a shame when the music community suffers because of it. The digital rights war rages on.
