Actions Have Consequences
Proud of yourselves?
The remaining 3 “major” labels – Universal, Sony and EMI - will be out of the classical business within 2 years. They will create no more than a handful of additional classical CDs. With the possible exception of a few “crossover” artists the labels will drop all of their classical artists. The majors will focus on trying to salvage their pop business and will abandon classical because it is more trouble than it is worth.I'll admit it - I'm proud of myself. I called this more than four years ago.
It turns out, file-sharing only helps the most visible pop stars, who are marketable no matter what. It kills the marginal performers.
Yeah, I called it. I rule.
