Last.fm: “Techcrunch are full of sh*t”

23 Feb

Last.fm, a fantastic service that streams commercial-free music over the net has come out swinging against allegations made by TechCrunch that they are giving away member information to help the record industry police piracy.  They write:

On Friday night a technology blog called Techcrunch posted a vicious and completely false rumour about us: that Last.fm handed data to the RIAA so they could track who’s been listening to the “leaked” U2 album.

I denied it vehemently on the Techcrunch article, as did several other Last.fm staffers. We denied it in the Last.fm forums, on twitter, via email – basically we denied it to anyone that would listen, and now we’re denying it on our blog.
