Cannot say I’m surprised. It’ll be two-years after their acquisition, which is probably the earliest they were allowed to leave.
More exactly, CBS (Last.fm’s parent company) got this user data by not telling Last.fm they were going to turn it over. Last.fm responded to TechCrunch’s initial allegation with a blog post titled “TechCrunch are full of shit.”
I wonder how Last.fm feel about the acquisition right now.
