If you love something, set it free. It’s time to love T-Mobile for setting music free. T-Mobile users can stream all the music they want, free from the fear of hitting their data limits.

Although it's too late to become eligible to submit a surround sound music release for the 47th Annual GRAMMY Awards in February 2005 if you're not already a member of the Recording Academy, fans of surround sound music will have a new award category - Best Surround Sound Album - to heatedly discuss around the office water cooler.

All genres of music for commercial releases on DVD-Video, DVD-Audio, and SACD with an original mix of four or more channels are eligible. We'll know multichannel music has finally come into its own when a release wins both the Best Surround Sound and Best Hawaiian Music Album awards.

More bad news for the music industry: Not only are young listeners buying fewer CDs--they're also downloading less music, even from illegal sources. They still like music, but they're getting it from new alternative sources, and the shift in listening habits is both remarkable and recent.

Yes, high-def fans, there is music on those formats. There just isn't much of it, relatively speaking. Back in the January 2007 issue of Sound & Vision, I rounded up the first batch of titles in a review called Found What We're Looking For!...

Have the major labels colluded to fix the price of downloads at a minimum of 70 cents per track? That's what plaintiffs are alleging in a federal lawsuit. The suit had been thrown out by one court but another has ruled that it may proceed.

Musicians are the backbone of several industries: recording, broadcasting, music publishing, live performance, etc. Several of those industries are currently waging a rhetorical free-for-all over what musicians get paid. It's like watching a pit full of weasels fight over a burger.

MusicGiants has offered high-res downloads--the missing link in the evolution of online music retailing--since 2005. Now the company's reach is spreading to new devices and new record labels.
