said Trent Reznor on NiN homepage on Monday, commenting the legal cases Music Industry vs. Youtube and Co. As a side-effect of those, he can't work with his fans the way he wants. (Read his article for details)

It feels right and good to see the bands and artists stepping into their role as the authors of the music during this critical digital shift that is ongoing. They begin to realize what the music industry does ("for them?") right now: Fight the already lost battle against the digital revolution and suing customers.

So if customers think digital music is a good thing and the bands thinks its a good thing, there will be a solution for the compensation problem.

What is left are the dinosaurs in the middle, that uselessly wait for their meteorite to extinct them.
