A nice summary of just a few of the various proposals concerning what the music industry should do that were discussed at a conference last week at Harvard. The summary was basically that the music industry wasn't going to be able to really stop the sharing of music - and they probably don't want to. However, no one is really sure what a good business model would be - since every one suggested raises other problems (some of which are worse than the current situation). However, at the end, the writer basically says, maybe we don't need to figure out a single-swoop solution, and just muddle through while the market figures this out. Of course, that's what plenty of folks have been saying for years. The only thing that's really annoying about that plan is that we have to keep watching the existing recording industry strangle itself while destroying everything in its path.
