Rolling Stone is carrying a great article, reproaching the music industry for its anti-download tactics:
“The fact is, the music industry has long been out of whack. Artists have been getting shafted for years. Record companies were over-staffed. And CDs were over-priced. Maybe it’s taken the peer-to-peer “revolution” to put the business back in shape. Geeks term such developments “disruptive technology.” But it’s disruptive in a good way, forcing an old snake to shed its skin for something fresh.”
And reafirming the point that the music industry needs to ‘get hip’ to the brave new world in which we find ourselves, and develop new business cases, instead of viciously protecting its previous entrenched traditions.
