Fascinating piece on NPR yesterday about the music recording industry and it's history. It seems ASCAP, then a monopoly, was overcharging. BMI was formed, which ASCAP scorned. BMI looked for new music and found Latino sounds as well as a lot of country, rock, etc. A whole new sound was born. It's very interesting, and almost ironic, given today's copyright wars. 2 paragraphs from Digital Century. Some dude's essay about how the system works today and its problems.
