If you want to introduce a really huge change into the system, you do it slowly, gradually, step by step, so that people don’t see it coming. It’s not the musicians who will benefit from this all, but all the record houses and all the others who refuse to change themselves, their policies, their way of doing business. It’s much easier to enforce more rules and laws. It would be much better if they would instead try to introduce changes into their mental models.
We used to say “Only in America”… but we don’t anymore. It’s happening everywhere.
