Bald nur noch Musikvideos?

Vor dem Hintergrund der Einführung des neuen iPod und der Verfügbarkeit von Videos im iTunes Music Store macht sich Eliot Van Buskirk bei CNET News.com einige sehr interesante Gedanken zur Zukunft der Musikformate.
In a business as broken as the music business, the new music-video situation stands out as particularly worrisome for artists. If Apple Computer and every other Johnny-come-lately online record store starts selling the entire back catalog of videos at $1.99, artists won’t see a dime of that money unless their contracts are reworked. In fact, they’ll lose money on their own videos–even though they’re being sold for twice as much as the music–because music videos are still considered promotion.via: CNET News.com
