MAKING NEW MUSIC PLANS by Cheryl K Warner

Hi everybody and Happy Valentine’s Day! Thanks for your awesome support and patience while we took a very productive pause with my music.  My family made a huge move to a new location, which has taken some time to “semi” become settled and unpack many, many boxes.  There’s still much be done personally, but we are now organized enough that I can again pursue my music. First of all, I want you to know how much I have appreciated your “hanging in there” with me, through all things.  All of you…my fans, friends, family, radio, team members and associates…are just…

I miss you.” Both are likely…

What’s the value of a song? Jammie Thomas-Rasset has spent the last few years in court debating that question. The Minnesota mother of four is being penalized for illegally downloading and sharing 24 songs on the peer-to-peer file-sharing network Kazaa in 2006, but how much she owes the record labels has been in question. The jury in her third trial has just ruled that Thomas-Rasset should pay Capitol Records $1.5 million, CNET reports, which breaks down to $62,500 per song. It’s a heavy penalty considering the 24 tunes would only cost approximately $24 on iTunes, which was Thomas-Rasset’ argument, too.…
