Coalition of media companies targets CBC’s free music site

A number of Canadian media companies have joined forces to try to shut down a free music website recently launched by the Canadian Broadcasting Corp., claiming it threatens to ruin the music business for all of them.
The group, which includes Quebecor Inc.  Stingray Digital, Cogeco Cable Inc. , the Jim Pattison Group and Golden West Radio, believes that will siphon away listeners from their own services, including private radio stations and competing websites that sell streaming music for a fee.
