Who Really Needs Whom?

Over the past few months there have been plenty of articles where musicans have spoken out in favor of having far more of a say in how – and for how much – their own material is distributed via the web.

And yet, with zero surprise I might add, the RIAA seems to see it differently, claiming just the opposite: that it’s the musicians who increasinly need the industry to survive and not the other way around, despite acts like Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails and others having already proven otherwise and unequivocally so.

Completely ignored are the pleas for enhanced copyright protection from artists and unions. — Neil Turkewitz, EVP, International, RIAA
