“Popular BuyMusic.com parody DontBuyMusic.com was shut down [last Friday] at the request of Buy.com’s legal team. The site has been taken down and a short notice has been posted in its place explaining the circumstances. During its relatively short, three week existence on the Internet, DontBuyMusic.com played host to tens of thousands of visitors, and was featured across the Mac web, as well as in web publications such as Wired magazine for standing up and speaking against the shady business practices of BuyMusic.com in the form of a parody. While DontBuyMusic.com has been shut down temporarily, its impact on the web lives on. At present, similar sites, such as BoycottBuyMusic.com are still up and running, and we’d encourage you to have a look them while you still can,” reports MacTeens.com’s Clark Mueller.
MacDailyNews reported on the launch of DontBuyMusic.com on July 30, 2003.
