The screenshots make me nervous. All of the bands shown certainly sell/pay stream their music online.

Now I haven't checked if those bands are sharing free promotional material on Bandcamp, SoundCloud, etc. but something feels a bit iffy about this.

I'd be a lot happier if the artists featured were clearly releasing music under Creative Commons or something like that. Right now this makes me think that if I use it the music streamed would be against the artists' wishes.




calling this Popcorn Time for music suggests that this is very against artists' whishes


I was trying to be generous to the developer and was hopping the intention was to support peer to peer music streaming rather than just ripping people off.

Just like with software, FOSS is better for everyone than just pirating commercial software.
