    With the considerable downsizing of recording industry's hard product, it's not surprising that performing artists are looking for every penny they can get elsewhere. I support this, within reasonable boundaries. Related links...

    An open letter to congress signed by prominent musicians. They oppose the so-called Internet Fairness Radio Act, backed by Pandora and possibly others.

    "Why is the company asking Congress once again to step in and gut the royalties that thousands of musicians rely upon? That’s not fair and that’s not how partners work together," the letter says.

    This thread is a little over a year old. Don't know if anything has changed.

    The record companies made bad decisions right off the bat. Others have certainly made the decision as well. They originally thought they could keep on "business as usual" and ignore the internet. Originally, when Napster was around, the record companies sued a few people that had downloaded, thinking that would be a deterrent.

    In hindsight, what they should have done was recognize which way the wind was blowing. Easier said than done, I know. There's no reason why the record companies couldn't sell music the way Amazon has but, unfortunately, they were late to the party.
