Big Music Wants Bigger Cut of Satellite Pie

“The entry of satellite and digital radio into the technological mainstream is increasing tension with the record industry, which wants new rules governing how consumers can make digital copies of songs from the airwaves.

“At issue are new devices that can record and save high-quality digital copies of tunes as they’re being broadcast by these new networks. Recording executives are worried that consumers might increasingly opt to make such copies instead of purchasing the music on a commercial CD or from a download store like Apple Computer’s iTunes.”
