Zakk writes “Larry Powers is an ex music lawyer who has an uncanny nose for the new media space. His writing is often perused by those in the biz, and is never less than interesting (if not controversial). This is his take on the Napster decision and the possible future scenarios.” There are a ton of post Napster analysis articles out there. This one is interesting as it has a bit more of the lawyer point of view, but I’m not sure I agree with his conclusion. To even suggest that Napster might retain 25% of its customers when it switches to a subscription model is pretty laughable.
Comments on “Napster Analysis”
He does say 2.5% is more likely
In the analysis the author does mention the much more realistic figure of 2.5%. The $20/mo fee he mentions is too high to be accepted however.
