Starbucks corners Alanis Morissette for six weeks

It seems that several independent music stores are complaining about Starbucks’ deal with Ms. Morissette to be the exclusive seller of her next CD for six weeks, after which the album will be available for sale in non-Starbucks stores. I don’t hear them complaining about the exclusiveness of the Antigone Rising CD. That one doesn’t have any plans for availability in any stores other than Starbucks. So, are the independents complaining about Alanis because she’s big and mainstream? That seems a but ironic to me.
