Investors Running From Downloadable Music

from the how-quickly-things-change dept

Well, this is interesting. For the past month or so I’ve been mentioning to people the way to get a startup funded recently is to add “and downloadable music” to the end of whatever they were doing. “Hi, we have online calendars… with downloadable music.” A sure hit. “Our great idea is human resource tools on the web, with downloadable music.” However, Wired is now reporting that downloadable music companies that have gone public aren’t faring so well. I wonder what the next “must have” is going to be.
