Music Downloads 2008 - A Victory for Consumers and Artists

Less than a decade after the advent of file sharing, sales figures indicate that the recording industry sold more singles than albums and unsigned artists sold more singles than record labels. Thus, the digital communications revolution has transformed the creation and distribution of music to the benefit of both consumers and artists.


This is great news for consumers tired of major label releases with only 1 or 2 hits and nine songs of filler. Thanks has to go to visionairy Derek Sivers of CDBaby who has helped thousands of artists like Tom Fox thrive by distributing their music to iTunes, Rhapsody and Sony Connect.
