What Does Musicblogocide 2010 Mean for eBook Bloggers?

google_logo23.JPGDigital 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)
