The Unspoken Code of the Music Blogosphere
    How did MP3 blogging become such an integral part of the music community, despite its shady legality? The blogosphere has found a makeshift balance between the web's massive communal archive; the on-demand, curated experience that music listeners crave; and the degree of rule-bending that the music industry will allow (or, in many cases, solicit) in the name of promotion. While music publicists fight for blog coverage, the industry's legal arm usually turns a blind eye. However, those who break the Unspoken Code (i.e. posting a pre-release album in its entirety) will pay the price. Should a public registry be developed? A legit/legal "Blogger's Code?" Or will music in the cloud change the role of the blogger?
