Wikipedia slander.

Real-time commodities market for songs? Doesn't really reflect the non-scarce nature of the good. Also, I think this would exacerbate the blockbuster mentality that's doing bad things for the industry, not long-tail it as the article suggests.

iTunes scores some long-tail TV shows. It never ceases to amaze me how much more the movie industry is learning lessons the RIAA member firms never did. Maybe.
The dealmaking behind the scenes.

EFF messing up?

Bubble's simultaneous release.

Real's service goes cross-platform, web-based.

Anti-Sony backlash starts among musicians.

Kazaa fails to make deadline for keyword filters. This will be an interesting experiment in international 'censorship', though, and the first P2P network to remain intact post-lawsuit. It might even be possible that other software running on the Kazaa network still continues to work unfiltered.

What happens if the media conglomerates are broken up?
