Vivendi, Why?

Vivendi owns the MP3.com archives so they can destroy them if they want.
But it does seem to be an incredibly wanton bit of destruction. There must be some huge hidden cost that Vivendi is escaping from. If there is not then there is no imaginable reason why they would not allow archive.org to capture this treasure trove of music, ranging from good to more then terrible.
I think musicians, writers, producers, etc., should be hving second thoughts about including Vivendi in their plans. It is clear Vivendi can not be trusted as a caretaker.
