The internet eats the seed corn

Robert Levine interview about this book “Free Ride – How the Digital Parasites Are Destroying the Culture Business, and How the Culture Business Can Fight Back” published by giant publisher Random House. I wish I could embed this video, but that’s probably a copyright issue.

I think this guy has a better argument than he’s presenting. If you bankrupt the creators of content, there goes your content. I don’t mind bankrupting the record industry, but free music on the internet is hitting the artists, too. I like this crowdfunding of artists’s work thing and I’m looking forward to seeing where it’s going.
