a music business case study

This case study of how much a fictional million selling band actually pockets is hilarious. And as far as I know, pretty accurate. [Adam Curry’s Weblog]

Sad, sick and “true” – it is a fictional band after all… but makes you think that if the music business gave a shit about the customer or the artist, they would have collectively figured out how to reduce the cost of an album after all these years (perhaps eliminate a few layers in their reality distortion fields), which might then get people more interested in buying their mass market krap. We then also might have a viable option for subsccription services…though I guess we will just have to see what happens with AOL
