The music industry uses made-up numbers?

Slightly late to the game with this one, but a nice number-demolishing piece from our Sainted Ben Goldacre. See, I’ve worked in the music business and am of the opinion that music should be free, musicians should get paid. And many do, just not at the obscene levels they were used to and are having to find other outlets for their work.

Maybe the problem is that the music “industry” has stood in the way of making music reasonably priced so we don’t feel ripped off. Many established artists are able to circumvent the old ways with innovative models. Maybe they’re just hanging onto their doomed jobs?

Still, enjoy Ben’s Piece.
