Subject: RE: CDBaby - current issues for artists
Thanks, Anne. I have also received the email that Anne received and yes, it's frustrating. After thinking about it, I am going to let this sit for a while and maybe someone will also buy the THREE (!) CDs that seem to be occupying lots of reals estate on CDB shelves. I stopped filling re-stock requests back in early 2019, hoping to just sell off the THREE (!) copies they had.
Besides all the bootlegs and used copies of my CDs (and I know I am not the only musician dealing with that) I am now the only person that is selling my CDS through my website. With the exception of the THREE (!) copies via Amazon from CDBaby, all others are not sanctioned.
I agree with Anne; buy your music from the artist directly or from their recommended vendors. I also use Bandcamp for digital sales and I think they are a great company.
