Alessandro Marquez's curator insight, October 12, 2013 3:03 PM
It’s good to see professionals in the industry, such as Nick Mason, accept the new trend the music industry is leaning towards, as it may be the future of music. I believe that to necessarily dedicate yourself as a fan is to go see your favorite artists in concert; as he explained, the money in today’s music industry is mostly coming from live shows, and above all, the experience is like no other. As for the music business, the industry has made a huge shift wholesale from recorded music to live. Though, shouldn’t music be about the experience? I’m not saying we should stop making records, but we consume music differently, and it’s more about seeing your favorite artists live in concert than buying their new album. Ultimately, I think the live experience is more valuable.

Alessandro Marquez's curator insight, October 12, 2013 2:29 PM
It’s interesting to see that Beats will be providing a music streaming service in the near future, and they’re a company who solely focuses on equipment, so it’ll nice to see the new transition they’ll be making into the market, since it seems like online music streaming services seem to be the place to go to look or to listen for new music. I think it’d be cool to see different companies provide services like this, it might ease a lot of tension we have in our music industry today between artist and record labels, if they get involved with new these companies and ideas, as it could be revolutionary the way we perceive music. Artists can also play a huge role in this; after all, it’s their music we’re listening to.

How Netflix Reduces Piracy

How Netflix Reduces Piracy | Music business | Scoop.it

"There has long been three opinions about how to beat piracy; through legislation and enforcement, through better legal services, or both. Although piracy continues to exist as numerous new music services have launched, there’s no doubt consumers have far better options (free-of-charge streaming, DRM-free downloads) than they had just a few years ago."

more...
Scott Crawford Jr.'s curator insight, May 13, 2013 11:04 AM

I like how Netflix is trying to help the problem. Makes me think of Amanda Palmer and her question, "How do we LET people pay for music, not MAKE them."


Piracy doesn't drop just through access to legal entertainment options. Netflix has two things going for it: a very wide reach and a best-of-class service. The company had 36.3 million streaming subscribers at the end of March, an increase of nearly 10 million subscribers in 12 months, and operates in 40 countries. And it is arguably the best streaming service and at $8 per month is the best value on the market. Popularity, quality and value go a long way in beating piracy.


Netflix’s chief content officer says “BitTorrent traffic drops as the Netflix traffic grows”
