‘Rock Band’ Not Boycotting Warner Music Group

Even the reported bit of the awful Wired article on plastic-guitar games saving the music business that ran this month was wrong: The story’s assertion that Rock Band producer MTV Games is “boycotting” Warner Music Group artists, which author Jeff Howe claimed to have gotten from a source close to the negotiations, is incorrect. While no WMG artists have been included on Rock Band‘s tracklist since Edgar Bronfman had a snitfit about royalties from the game last summer, the situation isn’t a “boycott” as much as it is a “stalemate,” according to Billboard‘s probably-more-reliable sources.
