CDFreak linkageOne week after the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) successfully shut down Muxtape, a new service very similar to the now defunct service has launched. The biggest difference between Muxtape and OpenTape is that OpenTape makes the users host their mixtapes on their own servers or bandwidth, instead of a central location.
OpenTape is a free, open source technology that allows users to host their own mixtapes over the Internet.
Thoughts on this news? Is OpenTape doomed? I find the timing rather ironic and amusing, but I am sure the RIAA lawyers are already trying to figure out how to get this new service destroyed immediately.
I used Muxtape a couple of times and was sad to see it go, but haven't given OpenTape a try yet. Have any of you tried it?
