While reading the physical version of my newspaper today ( ) I noticed some errors under the "Our View" opinion column. The title is "iPod, therefore I Am," mantra for digital age. The first part essentially talks about the media not taking the iPod seriously when it was first released and now Apple is starting to get into videos. Now to the erroneous paragraphs: A little further on: Hmm... sounds to me like the author is confusing iTunes with illegal downloading. iTunes has helped out the record labels and artists who were losing money to illegal downloads. The "record labels don't make a dime" it complete BS. In fact, Apple doesn't even make a dime as it is the recording industry who takes most of the revenue. Here is my newspaper's website: Marshfield News-Herald and its sister newspaper, where the opinion was originally printed: Wausau Daily Herald Please, if everyone could send some sort of e-mail to these papers to correct them I would greatly appreciate it. Here is a link for the News-Heralds "letter to the editor" submission. Letter to the Editor EDIT: My letter to the editor: This letter is in regards to the column entitled " 'iPod, therefore I am,' mantra of the digital age". I would like to clear up some facts for other readers of the newspaper who may have interpreted Apple as having a negative effect on the music industry when in fact the reverse is true. Yes, compact disc sales have been plummeting for five years but have since leveled off. The plummeting sales were due to illegal downloads, not iTunes. iTunes helped save the industry and the low prices of its songs lured many people to legal downloading instead of illegal ones. Your comment that "record labels and artists don't get a dime in the deal" has no shred of truth. In fact, direct from msnbc.com which states "labels get 60 to 70 cents from each downloaded song". I would appreciate it if you could alter your article or publish a follow-up statement of some kind which will tell how iTunes has helped the music industry; MSNBC link: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/9629461/site/newsweek/ EDIT EDIT: Crap, grammatical errors. I was too agitated to proofread.
