Hi John, you contacted my band a little while ago about getting on Magnatune. About your new deals with EMusic, iTunes, and the rest -- what does that mean for artists like us who are already handling digital distribution to those stores through CD Baby? CD Baby's agreement specifically prohibits us from having someone else distribute our music digitally to those services.

"CD Baby's agreement specifically prohibits us from having someone else distribute our music digitally to those services."

CD Baby allows bands to sign up with Magnatune, but in cases where a Magnatune artist is also signed with CD BABY, we (Magnatune) don't send their album to the other online services.

I'm on very friendly terms with CD BABY, so we're able to work things out whenever there's a potential conflict.

When an artist on Magnatune also has an agreement with CD BABY, Magnatune doesn't send that artist's music to other online services. Magnatune and CD BABY have a mutal admiration thing going on, and a lot of respect for each other, so we work with each other to make things work out.
