Music Sales and the Internet: Together in Perfect Harmony?


From Jon Healey's "Bit Player" blog , on "Hollywood's love/hate relationship with technology":

Me from Reason's March 2004 issue on why music industry cries that the Internet and file-sharing were killing them softly were premature–and nothing more than the same old song, with a lazy new rhyme or two.
