I would guess they know they can bully the small unsigned acts, so that is where they are making their play. I find it hard to understand their need to do this; I mean, really, how much space do they dedicate to CD storage per artist? Certainly there must be a more logical alternative other than disenfranchising their broadest user segment?the extra space even measured in cubic feet is ridiculously small.

I used to love her...and was there over a decade, with 10 albums and many singles, but no more. CD Baby truly sucks now on countless levels. Beware of alternative fronts and shifting financial backers. I communicated many times in an attempt to help make things good for all, spoke with multiple service reps including Tyler and then Anna Held via telcon, who were not only rude, but also deceptive about history with the company. It's just corporate poo now, rotten run-around. Under Derek, things were good, fair, well intended it seemed. Now, after being sold and repackaged multiple times, it's crap, lazy, watered-down shyte. It's hard to say what game they're playing at any given time. Their technical ability isn't and their soul was sold long ago. Adios Greedy Baby. Sad. Maybe folks should withhold material for a while until the industry sorts out. Why give any more money to these slackers? There's a song in there somewhere, not that they care about music.

July 2013 update: We gave mondotunes a shot and it sucks too, beginning in April. Now in July, we're outta there too. We tested 2 projects. The first begun in April, never made it through the muck. The 2nd was severly flawed and tagged. Mondotunes in our experience lacks transparency, is non-efficient, lacks abilty to test uploaded material, customer service run-arounds, tech errors, etc. U name it, they seem more than able to goof it. Given so many flaws, there is no justification for confidence in their accounting. Sad to lame. Bummer.
