The Music Biz is Over

Congratulations to Tom Silverman, for proposing as an “innovation” pretty much the exact model that the more honorable indie labels have had in place since the 80s — the 50-50 artist/label profit split.

Alas, Mr. Tommy Boy is still an intelligent guy and has plenty of thought-provoking things to say about Spotify, the Long Tail, 360 deals, and Major Label iTunes scams among other things, in this interview.

[Also: Tunecore responds.]
