OECD Digital Music Report

Highly recommend the OECD’s new report on digital music.  You might also be interested in comments
authored by members of the Berkman Center Digital Media Project
(including myself) on the report’s original draft.  Regardless of
whether I agree with all of it, I think it’s quite balanced. Indeed,
compare two leads in news articles about the report:

Wired: “File-swapping networks alone are not to blame for the recording
industry’s woes and might plausibly be converted into legitimate
channels for distributing music, one of Europe’s most influential
economic bodies has concluded.”

Times Online: “Governments must act to reduce
piracy if media companies are to profit from the explosion of online
music, according to the Organisation of Economic Co-operation and
Development.”
