The stony silence from the Recording Industry Association of America about the mysterious takedown of Muxtape earlier this week was broken Tuesday night, when a spokesperson for the trade association sent MTV News a statement.
"For the past several months, we have communicated concerns to Muxtape on behalf of our members," read the statement. "Muxtape has not yet obtained authorization from our member companies to host or stream copies of their sound recordings." Then again, a lawyer with the Electronic Frontier Foundation told RollingStone.com that Muxtape might be on pretty solid legal ground. Stay tuned for the latest developments of "As the Muxtape Turns."
