Labels Could Be Calling Jobs Their Daddy
“Dear Recording Industry,
“You’re being had.
“Online music sales have soared. Millions of consumers are discovering the convenience of buying music online. There’s just one problem: if you don’t change your strategy, you’re going to give the store away to Apple CEO Steve Jobs. His iTunes Music Store is the industry leader, and thanks to digital rights management (DRM) technology, every customer who buys your products from the iTunes Music Store becomes locked into Apple products. If that’s not changed, that will soon make Steve Jobs the most powerful man in your industry.”
