Michael Robertson Bucks the Music Industry Again With DAR.fm

Michael Robertson is a longtime provocateur of the music business. A decade ago, the music labels successfully sued his landmark startup, Mp3.com, over a feature that gave users a digital copy of any song they could prove they owned on CD.

Now Robertson is taking the wraps off his newest startup, DAR.fm - short for digital audio recorder. It'll be a centralized Web-based TiVo for radio. Users can go to DAR.fm to search through the programming schedules of about 600 music and talk-radio stations around the country and schedule the site to record up to four hours of any broadcast.
