Grey Tuesday EMI have banned DJ Danger Mouse from using samples from the Beatles White Album on his remix album The Grey Album. Hip Hop's not really my thing but there is a principle involved - The record industry stifles creativity for it's own greedy ends. They constatnly use the plaintive cry of "we're protecting Artists rights" whenever it suits them when, in fact, artists get a pittance of the megabucks the record companies force the consumer to pay.

So, in defiance, lots of sites are aiming to post the album for download next tuesday and they are asking other participants to turn their websites grey for a day on Tuesday February 24
