Pitchfork reports that DJ Amplive was served with a cease-and-desist over his Radiohead/In Rainbows remix project Rainydayz Remixes, which I posted about last month. It wasn't Thom Yorke and co. that shut Amplive down, but their publisher Warner/Chappell. "On December 18, Amplive received a missive from Warner/Chappell informing him that he had "created musical arrangements / remixes" without proper "approval" and must cease distribution of them at once. Rather than tangle with these suits and their armies of lawyers, Amplive has agreed to suspend the project for the time being." Watch the video below for Amplive's point of view.
