A decade of digital music
Vaguely styled as a timeline, this end-of-the-decade blog post (from UK digital music news source Music Ally
) could prove valuable to anyone studying the music business or the intersection between entertainment and technology. The piece links to ten years of stories on digital music - from Napster through to Spotify - allowing us to look back on the issues without the 20/20 vision of hindsight. Gems include the Bluematter scheme from Universal Records in 2000
, which comprised 60 non-transferrable, non-burnable tracks for $1.99 each.
