  • "When there's no money, people get smart" – Cynthia Sexton (EMI)
  • Hot Topic chief music officer John Kirkpatrick: “We’ve almost completely moved away from the idea of sponsorship…We focus more on the experience and connecting fans with what they love inside of our store in some way.”  
  • Mattel's Katrina McMullan: Barbie-branded music portal coming in 2011. Labels clamoring to contribute music.
