FREE IS FREE group which I opened to protest this decision has 500 members and this amount is increasing speedily. The base idea of protest is changed to different areas about world. The protesters have different reactions:
- The payment is not acceptable for radio service, Last.FM alternatives are the best way.
- Exception of 3 countries is a discrimination. Someone defends that this is a racism.
- The strong hands of capitalism want to exploit other countries. This is a very different area from the others.
- The free users have a big role in Last.FM content and they are very sad after this decision.
- Strike Scrobbling : Protesters will stop scrobbling which is base of content of Last.FM for a while or for a certain day, for example 30th of March when radio will have payment.
- Data Destroying : Protesters will add wrong tags for songs and artists and will destroy available data. The fourth point of above is base idea of this strike.
- Strike Scrobbling - Free Is Free : A lot of users added to their playlist this fake track which is a reaction of payment. This track will be entered the Top 10 of Last.FM Lists.
- Deleting Acount : The users will erase all statistics and delete their account.
