Letters To Editors

Today we’re launching the first piece of a series of tools to help us turn Downhill Battle into an organizing force. To The Editor is a new tool that let’s you send a letter to the editor at your local newspapers (US only for now). The major labels have controlled the discussion about the future of music from top to bottom, but now we’re going to go bottom-up to redefine the issue:

Send a Letter to Your Local Newspapers.

This tool uses our new software, Local Ink, developed by Downhill Battle Labs. It’s a simple but powerful way to connect people with their local media outlets, and we’ll be making the software free and open-source. Organizations are paying thousands of dollars for this kind of functionality– now they don’t have to. That’s how the playing field gets leveled on the internet, and it’s exactly what we’re working towards in the music industry.
