Free music plays into the hands of the ill informed

ACT Libraries with Library Ideas and Freegal Music now give access to Sony music for library members.

Each library member can download 3 DRM free songs a week.

So free (at point of access) songs, and that’s great. But then we look at the top ten list of what Canberran’s are downloading.

Is there a better sign of the oncoming apocalypse than this selection of music?

Librarians give public access to all sorts of information and media, and yet that same public still manage to make all the wrong choices. And, it’s like they don’t even try to learn.

Thanks to Kathleen for the heads up on the service.
