In a wide ranging keynote speech at the CITA mobile conference, EMI head Eric Nicoli spoke about the state of the music industry and EMI's plans to overcome the current malaise. Over the next week we will be featuring portions of the speech:
"...I often get asked which product or service will win in the digital arena and what current business model would EMI pin its hopes on. And the answer is that, right now, we’re 100% agnostic – if that’s not a contradiction in terms. The glib answer is - we don’t care for the moment. We don’t care if it’s Over the Air, fixed download, ad supported subscription or carrier pigeon… we’ll try anything and everything recognizing that the consumer will ultimately decide."
