New Music Strategies calls for a massive quitting of MySpace on 24th oct. Netwaves' MySpace page is already more than 1 year in passive mode, and maybe we will quit Rupert Murdoch's shit, but i can't find the delete button. Does anyone know how to quit?

One of the people behind New Music Strategies is Andrew Dubber who wrote a very interesting and must-read book (free pdf) about the music business online:
"The 20 things you MUST know about music online"

An excerpt: "There is also the story about how the internet is �killing� the record industry. Downloading, and the practice of burning CDs is single-handedly responsible for the impending demise of the major labels, causing the decline of high street retail and is undermining traditional, �natural� models of music distribution and consumption � and consequently preventing rights holders from receiving their deserved reward for their part in the creative process.
Nonsense.
In fact, technology does not �cause� these things. Technology changes and we choose our response. We have agency and can negotiate these shifts in media, as long as we understand them as they happen."
