Comment on "Apple on Music DRM"
by Vickie — Feb 08
Distribution is a keyword here. For a long time the big music publishing companies have had a stranglehold on the distribution and promotion channels. If you wanted your music to sell, you had to be signed up to them. For that you got advertising, the prime shelf spot in a music shop, and legal protection against piracy.

I don't think that anyone believes that people who create music shouldn't be paid for it. The question is, how can this change as people move away (ie. to the Internet) from the traditional ways of distributing and promoting music ?

You've already mentioned the brilliant thinking of Steve Jobs regarding the conventional Gillette marketing model. Is he opposing DRM, or just thinking forward to how the next great thing will work?
