Blue Bayou: An industry that hates its customers

I’ve blogged similar stuff before, but this post (Blue Bayou: An industry that hates its customers) gets the point pretty well.

Imagine an industry that was so hostile to its customers that it regularly sued them; that resisted all new technologies for distributing its products, even as their best customers were embracing them; and that lobbies in Washington to try to take away its customers’ legal rights to use its products.

The future is coming, and artists have to decide if they want to join it or fight it.  Many of us have dreamed about getting major label deals, but at this point, does that put you on the right side of the future?
