December 31, 2015

Some quick thoughts after listening to first 9 episodes

“Will Musicians Survive in the Age of Free When the “Bottle” is worth more than the wine” – a great line & an observation that the spotify platform is worth more than its music . See also:

“Intent, Licenses and “Sweat of the Brow” – helpful discussion of copyright but it would have been nice to hear about copyleft & re-combining of artworks

“two letters and a number” – MP3.com was originally someone’s name. Robertson’s story how on how to be sued & wooed simultaneously

“so… Why does Liza Minnelli get paid when the Sex Pistols Stream?” – how to weight things (downloads or listeners) & various frauds based on this…

Can you Sell Something that Doesn’t Exist? – Superfans: would you rather collect unemployment or by the latest Doors album?
