Run To Remember - A Letter From Duck Down CEO Dru Ha


Run To Remember - A Letter From Duck Down CEO Dru Ha

Dear friends and family,

As many of you know, this Sunday at 10:40 AM, I will embark on what I consider to be one of the greatest challenges of my life. I will cross the starting line on the Verrazano bridge, in Staten Island, of the NYC Marathon.  I  hope to complete my journey some-to-be-determined hours later (or at least before it gets dark) in Central Park, Manhattan.

As important as this experience has become to me, I want my marathon run to have just as big an impact on others. This past January, my & Noah's father passed away due to complications from Alzheimer's after a 10-year battle with the disease. Alzheimer's is a degenerative and fatal disease of the brain, for which there is currently no cure. People who suffer from the disease slowly lose their abilities to remember, to think, to communicate and to care for themselves.  Sounds like symptoms that I could experience by the end of 26.2 miles, but I should fortunately recover. Alzheimer's patients do not.

As part of my commitment to the Alzheimer's Association in the marathon, I'm proud to announce that we have raised over $12,000 in contributions.  I personally want to thank those who have donated through my personal page or purchased the "Run 2 Remember" song (by Buckshot, Smif n Wessun & Promise - produced by Double O) through iTunes, or bought one of our custom dry fit work out shirts at the duckdown.com shop.  All forms of support have helped the cause and if you haven't had the chance yet, it's certainly not too late to add on.

* http://ohhla.com/anonymous/buckshot/rm_bside/runtorem.bdi.txt *

So now I'm days away from the race....I've been dedicated to my training, running over 325 miles since deciding to run in late July, and while I've battled through numerous injuries, I feel confident and prepared to go.  I will need all the encouragement I can get to keep me going, so hopefully I'll see some of you along the race route. Please cheer me on as I run, walk or crawl by.

Thanks again for all the support.

Respectfully,
Dru Ha

Chuck D Sues Universal Music Group


From HipHopDX:

Public Enemy’s Chuck D has filed suit against Universal Music Group for underpaying royalties on digital downloads.

According to Billboard.biz, the veteran rapper filed a class action suit against the label in San Francisco, California, alleging that “UMG routinely miscalculates the royalties owed to artists for digital downloads, such as MP3s and ringtones, by treating them as ‘sale’ of physical records rather than ‘licenses.’”

Chuck D’s lawyers at Hausfeld LLP say that hundreds of millions of dollars have been withheld, motioning to a 2010 decision for digital downloads to be treated as “licenses.”

"Chuck D has been 'fighting the power' for over two decades and will continue to do so through this suit in order to help all musicians, including many legacy artists who are living on fixed incomes," said James Pizzirusso, a partner at Hausfeld.

"This complaint suffers from serious flaws and weaknesses, not the least of which is that the claims asserted are not appropriate for class treatment," responded a UMG spokesperson.
