YouTube, Google and the Majors - a classic example of how not to do it

"The recorded music industry has been given this incredible gift of a new technology which permits the liberating freedom of self-expression in ways which permit communicating with the public and by the public in totally new ways, and permits new forms of communication, creation, distribution and manufacture of recorded music, at a fraction of historical prices. As an industry though, we seem be trying to shackle it with the chains of nineteenth century concepts of copyright that aim to control copying in an era where a whole new world economy is being built on the ability to copy and reproduce, deliver and exchange with extraordinary ease and minimal cost." —Peter Jenner, International Music Managers' Forum (via A2K)
