"We're very sorry, but while we would love to let you in and rock out with us, we need to currently restrict turntable access to only the United States due to licensing constraints.

We are working very hard to try and get you in as soon as possible.

If you believe this is a mistake and you are located in the United States, please e-mail help [at sign] turntable dot fm

Again, sorry, and we hope to see you soon.

Billy Chasen

Man, licensing constraints are the coffin nails for the music industry.
 
Damn.. sorry guys, I'll see if I can get a review going and play it for non-US people DESPITE what anyone says! <insert evil grin here>
 
Hollywood and the US music industry think they control the world's artistic content. But for every single American that can listen to 'turntable' and similar sources, there are 100 of us in other countries that can't because we have separate licensing agreements that are not connected. Why do 'licensed performers' think they are well served by the RIAA and Hollywood when they are being locked out of the massive global market?

Think this is a stretch? I live a few miles from the US border and easily receive American TV, radio and cellular yet nobody in Canada will ever hear of the licensed performers on 'turntable'. Nixie, the solution is to boycott licensed music. There are lots of great performers out on their own with most doing VERY WELL from concerts, and promoting via a monetizing web site, often including sample music for free.
 
This is why we shouldn't overly rely on centralised services.
