Despite the rise of internet self-promotion, the record industry is in rude health, says Frances Moore.
How has the internet changed the role of record companies? To many, it seemed the digital world would render record labels obsolete, in an age when artists could self-publish and self-promote their work. However, a new report we have published at IFPI today suggests a very different story. Far from marginalising labels, the internet has actually made them more important.
