"Meanwhile, this week, international music industry association IFPI revealed global music sales to have fallen by 5%."
"Speaking recently at the London Calling trade event, John Kennedy, the association's chairman and CEO, described the current music business as like being "strapped into a particularly hair raising rollercoaster"."
Mr. Kennedy, if you think a 5% grade is a particularly hair-raising rollercoaster, you need to try some better rollercoasters.
The article makes a number of good points, including the lack of resale value of non-physical music sales, and how giving away music drives future sales.
