Yes, the term "netlabel" already has some currency, but I'm not so happy
with it.

Here's why:

* I'm discovering that almost every artist who made a release through a
netlabel consider it just as a starting point to gain some kind of fame
and recognition hoping to release a conventional cd for a *real* non-net
label.

* Most successful netlabels and their artist already have that "I'm too
busy to answer your emails" attitude. I could have lived happily without
this kind of people. Don't want to be perceived as a part of this scene,
for sure.

* A netlabel and the people who run it are still unnecessary middlemen,
albeit of a newer kind.

* If an artist gives his work to a netlabel, one of the reasons is what
Carlo described before as the need to have somebody else judge the
quality of his work. It's some kind of certification a true independent
artist could do without.

Obviously I'm not talking about all netlabels and every artist featured
there, but most of them.
