Chris Anderson's Long Tail discusses the Mainstream Media's meltdown.

Readers of the Big Picture have seen this argument phrased slightly differently:  Its the shift from analog old media to digital new media. 

But Chris gets it right, noting the following are "Flat to Way Down:"

What's up?  Digital:

Of all these industries which have seen their business models dmaaged by newer media, why are only one or two suing their clients?

Actually, I saw an interesting short article the other day (where? I have no idea--the joys of middle age). It noted that while the major lables are steadily losing sales and blaming it on P2P, indie labels are growing like mad. Rounder, the largest indie label, I believe, said their sales were up something like 80% last year (I'm not sure, but it was a very impressive figure). Others were clocking in with sales increases of 40% to over 100%.

Technology is not the problem. The major labels have just become terrible at the music business, from signing and fleecing new acts all the way down the supply chain. But like big business in general, they'll create enough of a stink to stay afloat and make trouble for their bogus 'enemies' like P2P software makers.
