"Without the gloss and heft of a magazine, or the jewel box and
liner notes of an album, a younger generation is, increasingly,
expecting raw information and art to be free. In other words, it's
the packaging that costs money. The words and sounds and images do
not warrant a price tag."
"'Artists and programmers, we're not in the commodity
business anymore,' [Red Hat chairman Robert] Young says.
'We're in the service business.'"
"[Cheskin Research's Steve] Diller adds that the pendulum of the
music business might actually be swinging backward. 'You know, the
music business before the 1950s relied on live performances, not
album sales,' he says. 'Frank Sinatra was not concerned with the
sales of LPs. He wanted people to show up at his concerts.'"
