-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA512 Music majors's strategy for limit fans freedom with DRM is to end CD era. Their "work" has somehow worked: CD sales dropped significantly this last years.
Majors want listeners listen their DRM music. This works (see the Spotify success) but there is an ironic counterpart : listeners use also a lot of illegal downloading (Megaupload, Torrents, etc.). The majors, their lobbies and silly money have created silly laws as ACTA and HADOPI. This works perfectly. A lot. A bit. Not at all, in fact. But the situation is that now, peoples stepped back for use... vinyl discs! And vinyl discs are so old, and are without DRM. Conclusion: Nostalgia is perhaps more useful that it looks. -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG/MacGPG2 v2.0.22 (Darwin) Comment: GPGTools - https://gpgtools.org Comment: Using GnuPG with Thunderbird - http://www.enigmail.net/ iQEcBAEBCgAGBQJTjwDDAAoJEAkexyki2U7qEGcIALG6uWej4Q4KTbe3NIJikJmg h9bWvr35SHFP5IGDuUX/8Fm9JPl+9HBBnjKYiigFoWLDUgtZlrq2r+rRwmSYAIqq q5ZDFNv+nbTDoVbpI2tqOBuMOaN9tU/9LxQuPT7uqsxipOewStRzqSps57yh5GCJ cBe2fwnIPQLMn9X+fQfyzTIFRAClp/qTNxUZBtW3MF0PTmkKrAvZ0EPchouyQbtj YZz/i46CR+HWS36oz9yypqX9zd3v+lbar0EeN6dH5OGBuCxRvu20NgEwkAFLXOMF SBh1Y8RQD63RS4dzyVo9tegleH/aVJzG/8TRCM8MROvk2P/eGGcnRyGIPXQOfNk= =u7VG -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- _______________________________________________ gnu-misc-discuss mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/gnu-misc-discuss
