Is the music industry finally getting the Apple Music Store message?
Could it be that the music industry has finally got the message about online distribution? See this report that Sony Music Entertainment and Universal Music Group are to sell their brain-dead online service, Pressplay, to Roxio. “The marketplace has changed,” Sony Music executive VP Robert Bowlin says. “We are in the content business. We don’t have to own the highway necessarily unless it is strategic to do so.”
Well, well… And isn’t it ironic that Roxio owns the Napster brand name?
