Bob Bellin

I think the root of this war is the fact that the record industry can't sell CDs anymore and they're looking for a quick and easy way to replace that revenue. Any justification is just a Trojan Horse. The record industry tried to stop the digital train rather than ride it and are now trying to make up for that mistake on the back of the radio business.

Of course, radio is making the same mistake with respect to the digital world. I wonder if there's an industry radio can leech from to recapture lost revenue?
