Mainstream Press Waking Up To The News That Musicians Are Making More Money

,----[ Quote ]
| Hopefully, with more mainstream 
| publications finally picking up on this, 
| both the press and politicians will begin 
| to recognize that the only real "crisis" in 
| the music industry is for those who have 
| stupidly relied on selling plastic discs 
| for way too long. There are plenty of 
| revenue opportunities for musicians, and 
| because of that (in combination with better 
| and cheaper tools for music creation), the 
| actual music industry is thriving at levels 
| never seen before.

| of Mark Antony he said, including the 
| description of her barge: âThe poop was 
| beaten gold; purple the sails . . .â

| The release of popular rock group Radiohead's new album next week is the 
| latest wake-up call for a music industry still struggling to deal with the 
| advent of digital music, experts say.

| Music industry lobby groups have long been among the most vocal advocates of 
| copyright reform, urging governments worldwide to prioritise intellectual 
| property protection.

| Last week, Radiohead released its latest CD without copy-controls on its 
| website under a pay-as-you like system (Canada's Issa - formerly known as 
| Jane Siberry - has successfully employed a similar approach for many years).  
| The Radiohead announcement has unleashed a stunning series of follow-up 
| moves - reports indicate that Nine Inch Nails, Oasis, Jamiroquai, the 
| Charlatans, and Madonna have either left or are ready to leave their record 
| labels in search of greater commercial success through live performances, 
| merchandise sales, and other online innovation that may include free 
| distribution of their music.      


Pop musician Peter Gabriel launches "YouTube for human rights"

,----[ Quote ]
| Web accessibility simplifies this process by facilitating the 
| media-independent global distribution of information and videos recorded on 
| film or mobile phone cameras.
