Decibel pitches itself as a leader in the music metadata space by citing a deeper and more accurate dataset than its competitors. The slick video (embedded below) on its site is quite convincing. Decibel claims to collect music metadata from all sources all over the world, including record labels and users, check it for accuracy, and compile it into the database. It’s ambitions are set high with the goal of creating an industry standard in music metadata, and why not? Someone’s got to do it!
In what might be a first in the world of open APIs and mashups, a developer has been sued by a major corporation for developing an application using a third party web service API. As TechCrunch's Jason Kincaid reports, Ryan Sit, the talented developer behind a number of popular mashups is being sued by EMI for his application Favtape because it uses the Seeqpod API. Of course it's not unusual for a record label to aggressively use the courts to defend copyright, but this appears to take the battle to a new ground. As Jason describes:
Maestro.Fm wants to take your music experience to cloud nine, maybe even ten. Actually that could be a little overstated, but at least they are going to use cloud computing to do it. With a functionality similar to Google Music, a little application runs on your PC and uploads all your music to Maestro. Once it’s there, it’s augumented with album art, lyrics, and other lovely decorations. It’s kind of like a music library makeover. Google already has a thick collection of API services. Will they be interested in opening Google Music up for developer access? Don't wait around and wonder, the Maestfo.fm API is already here.
