Yea, I mucked up the article count again. Get back on the bike and move on ...
Disc Makers, the leader in CD and DVD manufacturing for independent artists and filmmakers, announced today the acquisition of CD Baby, the largest independent music seller in the world, following a 7-year close strategic partnership between the two companies.
The founder seems upbeat (sorry):
CD Baby will continue to operate as a separate company, focused on online CD sales, distribution, and download sales. CD Baby founder Derek Sivers commented: "It's amazing that this little hobby I started 10 years ago has benefited so many musicians. Disc Makers was my first choice to take the company to new heights. Their operational expertise is just what little CD Baby needed to grow up."
Sivers will continue to be involved with CD Baby as a consultant.
Good thing, bad thing, or merely thing, it looks like another Portland indie is going big-time.
