Say you want to share your dozen newest favorite songs with your bff...like now. You head over to make a Muxtape, right? Nope. Not today. Go to the site (muxtape.com) and you'll find this message: "Muxtape will be unavailable for a brief period while we sort out a problem with the RIAA." But here's why we're confused. The site allows users to listen -- not download the songs. And it even links to sites to buy the music. So why shut down a great source for advertising music? The mighty RIAA strikes again.
