Norwegian Warner Music Executive Terje Pedersen calls blogger a “brat” on Twitter

Failwhale

Today the record labels war on illegal downloads of music took a new low. The norwegian student Even (18) shared his frustration with his Twitter followers about iTunes not letting him download the newest album from Dave Matthews Band saying something like:

I’m pissed! iTunes is only allowing downloads of the new Dave Matthews Band album if you live in the US! And they complain about pirating.
Not many minutes after Even’s tweet, Terje Pedersen from Warner Music Norway replied with something like:
Then I suggest you steal it and write about the process in your stupid brat blog. We don’t want you to get upset.
This shows the record companies lack of understanding for social media and the lack of respect for the costumers.

The norwegian twitter community has already spread the word wide and are using the hashtag #warnerfail.

Help spreading the word with digging this article.

This post was originally written by Thomas Moen, but after his site was dugg and hit the frontpage, it went down. This is therefore a mirror of his original article.

    Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
