Music Investment Tops $600 Million In 2012; Up 34%

Music Investment Tops $600 Million In 2012; Up 34% | Music business | Scoop.it
Anyone who thinks investment in music is 'drying up' clearly hasn't looked at the numbers. Because with less than two weeks left in 2012, investment in music-related startups and companies has reached $619.3 million, a near-34 percent gain over 2011.
