Ahoi Friends,Followers & random Visitors
During the last 2-3 Weeks,you may noticed,that there are massive propblems with downloading the Mixes. The Reason for that is, that almost every Post is blocked due to Complains about Copyright Violations. A fact that brought Pachinko Overdrive to a stand still,i don't want to start nagging about the "Content Mafia" that wants to save their Benefices.We here at PO. always wanted to support and highlight Artists/Genres we love with our Mixes.We never intended to hurt the incomes of any Artist,we mainly used Music that was older than a Year and in a lot of cases are out of print.There is no Question that Artists should get payed for their Work like everybody else but since i got some very encouraging Mails by some of the Artists/Bands
that i featured, telling me that they liked my Concept and supported Po. by sending me, Songs they like me to include on future Mixes,i also got some Feedback for Visitors that said they discovered new things, that they now wanted to purchase.I woulden't be so bold to say that we helped to earn them Money but i think that we diden't hurt the income of any Artist we featured,especially when you know that I-Tunes pays the Artists, the massive share of 5.5 to 10 Cent per 99 Cent Song.Anyways,the Question is,what to do now?It dosen't make sense to run the Blog under the danger of an emmediate takedown via MediaFire with every new Post.Since i already finished the Base Frame for the new Year,i'd like to know if you like Pachinko Overdrive to continue?Of course some kind of transformation will be unavoidable,maybe a new "Invites-only" Version of PO. or we take shelter at a closed Forum?Maybe you have Suggestions or Ideas how to solve this Situation?Please let know if you like me to continue and if you are willing to follow Pachinko Overdrive onto the next evolutional Level.Your Feedback and Help is desperately need,so raise your Voice and help this Blog to survive.
