What Does Musicblogocide 2010 Mean for eBook Bloggers?

Digital filing sharing has revolutionized music criticism, and will radically change literary criticism as well. That’s why eBook fans should think about today’s big music story.

Google has deleted a number of popular music blogs–erasing years worth of writing and music criticism–over copyright violations. The event has been dubbed Musicblogocide. UPDATE: Google issues a brief response about the deletions.

According to the Guardian, the owners of these sites received this message from Google: “Upon review of your account, we’ve noted that your blog has repeatedly violated Blogger’s Terms of Service … [and] we’ve been forced to remove your blog. Thank you for your understanding.” The list of sites includes: Pop Tarts, Masala, I Rock Cleveland, To Die By Your Side, It’s a Rap and Living Ears.

What do you think? As digital books become more popular this year, could these problems eventually affect eBook bloggers as well? (Via Joy Press)
