the FT article from the Mac world article is also a very interesting read. It would appear that many of the execs in the music industry are very worried about the revenues or lack of revenue being generated. And the supposed competition from filesharing and lose of CD sales. However they still havent picked up on the pointers of better quality of artists, better songs, lower priced CDs, more selections of singles and better integration with online stores and of course the most important of all.... Listen to what your customers are telling you since they are the ones buying your product (or not buying your product as the case may be)

It would seem that change is happening in the music industry whether the execs like it or not.

Looks like iTunes is succeeding, yet they still don't seem to get the message. When will they ever learn.... :confused:

The music industry really drive me insane, I can't think of any other industry who are so arrogant. They blame declining sales on other factors rather than trying to stimulate demand, they don't listen to their customers at all and think they have a divine right to sell a huge number of whatever they chose as the current music of choice.

Of course music sales are going to be declining everyone has replaced all their old music with a CD version and so there is a big decline in sales. Add the fact there is year on year less and less good new music and more and more of the same pushed upon us.

As the ealier poster stated we want to enjoy music the music we like, how we want and when we want. Any other industry would provide the ability to do this and hence stimulate demand for their products, the music industry just seems to complain however.
