Rosie Flores' Kickstarter campaign for new album from '50s rockabilly heroine Janis Martin* [Updated] | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it
Last year I wrote a story about the myriad bootstrap methods musicians have discovered or created to help them finance the recording process as so many of the music industry’s traditional avenues have turned into dead ends.

One such tool that’s become increasingly attractive to many musicians established and fledgling musicians is Kickstarter, a website where anyone can pitch their latest project, set a financial goal and then watch and wait to see if enough fans are willing to chip in to get it off the ground.

The next big things - but we can't tell you who they are - Features, Music - The Independent | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it
It seems that the internet is to blame for everyone's problems these days. Not only does it have the publishing world, travel agents and the Post Office up in arms, the music industry would also like a few choice words with Sir Tim Berners-Lee. Reports of illegal file-sharing, the decline in sales and the death of the record store are all familiar stories. But now there is a growing issue around the way in which the internet, with its myriad social-networking sites and blogs, is fond of plucking the next big thing from obscurity, making them the online toast for a few precious months, before dropping them and declaring them old news. And while traditional media are certainly guilty of this fickle behaviour too, it is online where bands tend to rise and fall at such a swift rate.

Some delegates said the corporation seems to be the only one prospering on the back of copyrighted content these days. A few eyebrows were raised when it turned out Google had sent a representative to make a presentation at said party, opening his speech with the words: "I'm not going to speak about copyright as I know nothing about it." He then proceeded to demonstrate a new project they were working on, digitising artwork from some of the world's most prestigious museums.
