Net Neutrality is the principle that preserves an open Internet. It’s all about choice, freedom of expression and access to legal content. It’s also how many of us discover new music. But if big telecommunications and cable companies have their way, you may only be able to hear what they want you to hear.
Save Money... Distribute Your Downloads Anywhere.
How It Works: Using our online music service, Fizzkicks members can create their own music download cards to sell or give away to their fans. Each card has its own unique access code, which allows fans to download material such as videos, single songs, full albums or even lyrics from your own media player or own site.
