We received the following from the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) within a couple of days of posting the June Playlist a few weeks ago:

"We have learned that your service is hosting the above files on its network. These files contain sound recordings by the artist known as Lil Wayne. These sound recordings are owned by one of our member companies and have not been authorized for this kind of use. We have a good faith belief that the above-described activity is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law. We assert that the information in this notification is accurate, based upon the data available to us.

We are asking for your immediate assistance in stopping this unauthorized activity. Specifically, we request that you remove the infringing files from your system or that you disable access to the infringing files. In addition, please inform the site operator of the illegality of his or her conduct."

We attempted a meek fight back by pointing out that we hadn't featured the whole track, that we'd dropped fx over it and that DJs often use unlicensed tracks but alas there was no reasoning with them. I guess Tha Carter III sales were suffering because of his two minutes on our playlist. On a serious note, we understand the legality of the whole thing but do people really think this is reasonable? I mean, since when was putting a new rap single on a mix tape a problem?!

Seeing as we here at The Goodness are good law abiding citizens and we don't want to end up in court, especially over a Lil' Wayne song, we buckled under the pressure and have decided on a compromise. So here it is, the June Playlist Mix....MK II! It's bigger and better than before. Ta daaa!
