With quite amazing timing, Wired Magazine has come out with a feature story about Hilary Rosen, shedding a little light on her background. A few months ago, I had read that she didn’t necessarily believe in what she was saying for the music industry, but that she wouldn’t back down, because it was her job. This article points out that she’s often taking the heat for the opinions of the heads of the music labels, and sometimes has to fight back against them because they think she’s being too soft on the issue of downloadable music. Whether or not that’s true, I still think that she’s consistently done a terrible job for the music industry. No matter what they’ve hired her to say, she’s been helping to drag the music industry down by insisting on their anti-consumer policies.
