The Future of Music
This chapter looks at the music industry's long-running battle against mass copying. Copying is a fact of life in the music world, but music is not dying. Even without any changes, music is vibrantly creative today. But the music industry still needs to change to better survive a world of easy copying. It should rely more on live shows; entice customers away from piracy by emphasizing the quality of the legitimate product; create social norms about copying; and expand ways in which consumers can conveniently access music.
