Music Industry And Consumers Need Relationship Counseling

from the maybe-we-all-just-need-some-prozac dept

The NY Times has taken a… well… different perspective on the whole music industry question. They’re looking at the fighting between the music industry, Napster (and such companies), artists, and consumers as a question of a loving relationship gone bad – the needs relationship counseling. They even brought in a relationship counselor to give his $250-an-hour opinion. It seems that (say it in a soothing voice, now) the music industry and consumers really do love each other, but don’t trust each other any more, and are struggling to find that “middle ground”.
