The Roof is On Fire
Burn, Baby, Burn
The real threat to the music biz isn’t P2P
Look at the numbers: Industry estimates say 6 billion blank CDs will be sold worldwide this year – that’s one for every person alive today – along with 44 million drives on which to burn them. And 140 million people now own writeable drives – far more than the most optimistic membership claims made by Napster or any of its heirs. “You’ll find one on nearly every consumer PC,” says Gartner analyst Mary Craig, one of the more bearish forecasters in the business. “They’re not using them for backups.”
Steve Jobs understands the iPod’s potential for grand theft audio. The DON'T STEAL MUSIC stickers he slapped onto them prove that. His sop to the record industry was to enable iTunes to download to iPod, but not to upload. It’s a strategy only marginally more effective than the sticker. A free utility called iPod2iTunes makes cloning my friends’ iPods a plug-and-play operation.
So enabled, the iPod is a pirate suitcase nuke. And Jobs is the one who will complete the task Fanning started.
