Nine Inch Nails

A pioneering website sanctioned by Trent Reznor where fans can remix tracks from Nine Inch Nails’ back catalogue has been scrapped due to an ongoing separate legal fight.

Universal Music Group, which owns the rights NIN master files, is challenging Google (owner of Youtube) and News Corp (owner of Myspace.com) as fans have uploaded the label’s content without their say so.

Speaking on NIN.com, Reznor says that this case inadvertently has a knock on effect to his remix site as Universal would basically be endorsing something they are currently fighting in the lawsuit.

Not a man to lie down, Reznor is insisting that the launch of the site will go ahead and he personally will take full responsibility for it.

He writes: “In exchange for this they will continue to let me upload my Universal masters and make them available to fans, BUT shift the liability of hosting them to me.

"Part of the arrangement is having user licenses that the fans sign (not unlike those on MySpace or YouTube) saying they will not use unauthorized materials. If they WERE to do such a thing, everybody sues everybody and the world abruptly ends."

"We are challenged at the last second to find a way of bringing this idea to life without getting splashed by the urine as these media companies piss all over each other's feet. We have a cool and innovative site ready to launch but we're currently scratching our heads as to how to proceed."
