What the recording industry fears

Paul Sanders on a mailing list wrote the following:

And I can assure anyone who is feeling a bit hot under the collar about the music industry in general, that the thing they fear in corporate HQs and trade associations far far more than the digital consumer and bittorrent etc., is an emancipated artist.

Here’s to a world full of ’em!

  1. The record companies need not fear the “emancipated artist” so long as there are BitTorrent, YouTube, and other venues for unabashed, uncontrolled criminal piracy. That artist will be lucky to eke out a living.

  2. Counterexample to Brett: Amanda Palmer. Although clearly one cannot generalise from her (or anyone else) to an entire industry.
