  1. The latest attempts at new music distribution are to give music away free, but it’s a fallacious business strategy, whether SpiralFrog, Qtrax or Baidu in China. Unfortunately, this is unsustainable from a cost/revenue perspective, and counterproductive to the music retail market. The digital ad industry is simply not big enough to support the digital music industry.
    Digital music market is now at $30 billion and rising (including illegal downloads). While digital advertising is only at $20 billion and slowing.
    There’s an excellent analysis at Brooding Savage blog.
