EMI chairman comments on music piracy

They just won’t listen.  You can take one of the leaders in our industry – have him carve what’s wring with the music industry’s business model & how it contributes to piracy on the net it into the sky – and it doesn’t matter.

And as we saw with Napster, apparently when an entrepreneur tries to make it happen as it oughtta, the Music industry jumps on ’em.  I’m not sure I’ve heard this figure right, but on the television this morning (CTV News A.M.) I believe the lawsuit count in the U.S. is now up to 16,000 launched by the msuic industry against individuals for copying material online.

That’s probably a drop in the bucket – and there’s no evidence to yet suggest it’s having any real impact on Internet piracy.  But time will tell if this fear-mongering approach will work.

I’m betting not.

    I just found your blog and I like your comments on this one. I think the music battle is one that is going to be around for a long to come yet.
