RIAA Kills Hip-Hop Music Podcast

Sep 1st, 2007 | By | Category: General, Podcasting Law

DJ Premier has announced that the Live From HQ podcasts have been cancelled as the result of threats from the RIAA.

Here’s Live From HQ’s A.C.’s explanation of the situation:

Our site has been hit with a cease & desist order from the RIAA for broadcasting copywritten material. Additionally, our relationship with SIRIUS has been up and down since day one, and more recently has been difficult because of their concerns relating to a pending corporate merger and subscription rates. I feel that we have enough cause to fight this challenge-yet we don’t have the time, money, or legal resources to do so.

The site plans to continue publishing mixtapes, interviews, remixes and other content, but no more Live From HQ episodes.
