Vivendi sells MP3.com, will erase content

Vivendi sells MP3.com

Vivendi Universal recently sold the MP3.com domain to c|net, and instead of selling its archive, containing more than a million songs by 250,000 artists, the company will simply delete the content. Mike Robertson, founder and former CEO of MP3.com is currently pleading with Vivendi and CNET to allow archive.org to mirror the contents. Since many of these artists won't be able to come up with alternate hosting in that timeframe, and many of them won't even know it's happening, what Robertson calls "the largest collection of digital works ever assembled" will cease to exist.
