Gerd Leonhard sull’industria discografica – parte 1

Dal Midem blog

It looks like the music industry is quickly heading towards a total reset. 10 years have gone by since Napster 1.0, and what do we have to show for it ? The only real success in digital music is Apple’s iTunes – and they sell hardware!

This may be part of the problem: there are so very few real leaders in this industry.

People that are truly reinventing what they do and how they do it. Alas, instead of inspiring leaders this industry has numerous functionaries, lobbyists and corporate chiefs that block every change that comes along.

Lobbying the government to disconnect non-conforming music fans while utterly failing to license widely and openly will seriously backfire. These new sticks are becoming so huge that no-one will see the few carrots anymore.
